TONY ENGELHART: BENOIT BRINGS HIS SMOKIN' GUITAR BACK TO T-TOWN >>>M_37eb79caaf833e69cb9f408c195dffab

I have written about Tab Benoit more times than I can remember, but I always seem to find something new to say about the Louisiana bluesman. Armed with a classic Fender, Benoit rivals guitar greats like Eric Clapton with a deep understanding of classic blues.  His whiskey soaked vocals are as rough as sandpaper, which adds to his authenticity. But the story doesn’t stop with blues for Benoit as he also flirts with real New Orleans Cajun music and classic country. Swamp blues is a little grittier than Chicago or Memphis blues, and like Kenny Neal, Benoit is well versed in the music of his hometown. Since 1992, the guitar slinging Benoit has been releasing great music on both Vanguard and Telarc. His latest, Night Train to Nashville, was recorded live â€" where Benoit is at his best.

Tonight, you're in luck. Benoit will be live at Jazzbones in Tacoma.

[Jazzbones, 8 p.m., $18 - $20, 21+, 2803 6th Ave, Tacoma, 253.396.9169]
