Blues and soul singer Curtis Salgado and his band will perform for the Grants Pass Museum's annual Black, White & the Blues fundraiser at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16, at Wheeler Toyota, 375 Redwood Highway, Grants Pass.
Bass player Tracy Arrington, drummer Brian Foxworth, keyboard player Craig Stevenson and guitarist Vyasa Dodson will join Salgado for the Grants Pass concert.
Salgado never stops. He underwent lung surgery last summer; four weeks later found him performing on the road for seven weeks.
Salgado is up for four awards at the 34th Blues Music Awards to be held May 9 in Memphis, Tenn. He is nominated for the B.B. King Entertainer award; "She Didn't Cut Me Loose" written by Salgado, Marlon McClain and Dave Duncan is up for best song; "Soul Shot" for best soul blues album; and he's up for best soul blues male artist.
Art by regional artists will be auctioned, and there will be light hors d'oeuvres and a no-host bar. Tickets cost $55 and may be purchased by calling 541-479-3290. Patrons must be 21 or older. — Laurie Heuston
