This month’s Blues Brunch on Sunday, October 27th, 11:00 am – 3:00 pm will feature local and global sensation Steve Arvey. Steve may be local now but he has taken his special style of blues all around the world as far away as New Zealand as one of the headliners for the Bay Island Blues and Jazz Festival.

Steve Arvey began his career playing the Chicago blues circuit during the 70’s. During that period he shared the stage with many of the legendary blues masters from the Windy City. Now living in Florida, Steve is a fixture at major festivals and nightclubs throughout the South, Europe and the Caribbean. He is also considered by many to be one of the top cigar box guitar players in the world today. Steve has traveled the world over performing major festivals and was signed to Warner Brothers Records International in 2005 where he appeared on a CD with Jack Johnson, REM, George Thorogood and Bo Diddley. Reservations are recommended.

Mattison’s Blues Brunch Sundays are a partnership with the Bradenton Blues Festival, a Realize Bradenton production.
Tickets can be purchased on Sunday during Mattison‘s Blues Brunch or through the Realize Bradenton website.
