Alive After Five: Mississippi Marshall and the The Juke Daddys

The Grove Plaza, Aug. 14


Blues trio Mississippi Marshall and the Juke Daddys is Mississippi "Blues Daddy" Marshall, Jody "Cornpone Jenkins" Smith and Dayle "Mojo Foot" May. Based out of Idaho City, the band's sound is a unique form of rockabilly. Hearing Mississippi Marshal croon out raw blues lyrics as he strums up a high-energy riff on his guitar, it comes as no surprise that he was a semifinalist for the International Blues challenge, a Grammy Museum Foundation award-winner for Originality and Mississippi Music Foundation award-winner for Best Instrumental. Mississippi Marshal has been performing since he was 11 years old and writing songs for three decades. The Juke Daddys use plucky guitars, the beat of the drums and the vibrations of the bass to swell their music into a blues rock mash-up that hooks the listener. They will play in the Grove Plaza on Wednesday, Aug. 14, at 5 p.m.

With NKE. 5 p.m. FREE. The Grove Plaza, 827 W. Main St., Boise,
