Soggy Po’ Boys
7 p.m. Saturday. St. Lawrence Arts Center, 76 Congress St., Portland, $12 in advance, $15 at the door. stlawrencearts.org
In the mood for a night of New Orleans-style jazz? Head to St. Lawrence Arts Center for a lively performance from Soggy Po’ Boys. Singer/guitarist Stu Dias will kick things off with a quick overview about the conventions of music and the historical context of this much-loved style of jazz. Then it’s off to the races with seven musicians who love what they do and play the heck out of the guitar, trumpet, clarinet, saxophone, piano, upright bass and drums/percussion. You’ll quickly hear how much the New Orleans sound influences their music in the stories they tell and original tunes they play.
