The Jeff Salisbury Band performs at Lincoln Peak Vineyard on Friday, June 8, 6-8 pm. This quartet of Vermont blues veterans, led by percussion master Jeff Salisbury, has the experience, energy, and grit to truly bring it to the music they love.
Jeff Salisbury toured nationally with blues great Albert King and California blues rockers Cold Blood. He has also performed or recorded with a wealth of American rock, blues, and folk luminaries, including Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Doc Watson, Dave Van Ronk, and Rosalie Sorrels. Here in Vermont, Jeff has played the drum kit for such standouts as James Harvey, the Grippo-Sklar Sextet, Left Eye Jump, the Sneakers Jazz Band and, yes, even topical political balladeer Bernie Sanders.
Jeff is joined in the band by longtime friends Steve Thurston (Left Eye Jump, Vermont Blues Project) on guitar, bluesman Tom Buckley (Jimmy Reed, Eddie Taylor, Howlin’ Wolf, J.B. Hutto) on bass, and Bob Butterfield (The Secret Sam Band, North End Rhythm Kings) on harmonica.
The vineyard opens at 5:30 for picnicking. Delicious hot food available from The Antidote, and wine by the glass. Admission is free. Bring lawn chairs or a picnic blanket.
No alcohol may be brought onto the grounds, and please leave your pets at home. The concert series happens rain or shine– there’s room on the winery porch in the case of rain.
