(Albany, CA) – Come celebrate Frank Samuels 80th Birthday on Saturday Sept. 2nd at Britt Marie’s (1369 Solano Ave., Albany, California) from 8-11pm. To listen to an exciting drummer and blues vocalist like Frank at the age of 80 is inspiring. But also come out to honor Frank’s amazing career. Frank has been playing professionally since the age of 14, and has played with some of the country’s greatest Blues and Jazz stars. Frank toured all over the country with Blues Legend Big Joe Turner, with Roscoe Gordon and with Jim Beck. He’s played for years with the great Etta James. In the Bay Area, he’s played with Blues icon Fay Carroll and led his own band as well. He’s been a fixture in the Bay Area Blues and Jazz scene since 1960 and is widely recognized as one of the most versatile and accomplished bay area drummer/vocalists. I’m pleased to say he’s now playing with the Tauber/Browning Band. Come out and enjoy and honor one of the Bay Area’s blues and jazz treasures, Frank Samuels.
