Blues Jam Featuring Mike Balas

April 12 • 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Mike Balas ~ I walked off stage and walked to the back of the bar where the “Eugene Blues Scene” was hanging out. That’s when Whitlatch and Brewer introduced me to Mike Balas as someone we all want to see featured at the Westside Jam. With that recommendation we are in for a never seen before treat. Mike is a new transplant to Eugene, originally from Ohio where he performed with various acts since he was ten years old. Mike is a hybrid kind of musician pulling from blues, R& B, gospel, jazz, rock with a dash of New Orleans to create his style of play. He has shared the stage with George Strait, Merle Haggard, Leon Russell and Johnny Winter and his friend, the legendary Robert Lockwood Jr. among many other notables. Mike tells me he has been enjoying his new friends and home here in Eugene with his wife Dawna who has inspired and encouraged him musically since he was about 14 years old. All the cool musicians end up in Eugene sooner or later, right. Another Eugene hot find, a show not to miss. Come on out to the Overtime Grill on Bertelson where the people are cool. “Keepin’ The Blues Alive, Man”
