Janice Gerard belts the
blues at Martini Blues in Huntington Beach
In a recent open mic Wednesday night at Martini Blues, musicians who signed up were invited on stage to play with the house band.
Opening the show with a half a dozen blues tunes to get the house rockin', the professional musicians making up the house band were established performers from the Los Angeles/Southern California area.

Joe Blue greeted guests in hospitable fashion. You wouldn't know
that such a low-key, friendly guy had so much energy till you
saw him perform. His harmonica was never visible as his hands
cradled it at the microphone. But the tunes and body language
projected the heart and soul of the blues in rhythmic fashion.
