Saturday Night Live Music by Evan Thomas Blues Band


Join the Evan Thomas Blues Band at Abbott Square Market this weekend! Enjoy live music over dinner and drinks from our vendors. 

Evan Thomas has that thang. It’s in his inner soul, and that feeling which captures a down home essence, the foot stompin’, and head – nodding style, of the old Mississippi delta blues tone. It’s the grit, in his soulful voice and his cryin’ guitar which sets him apart. The Band is experienced and packs a potent performance, full of style and tone. Something fans of the Blues will not soon forget.
