Bumby Ave., Tuesday, December 6. Showtime: 8pm. Tickets: $34. and up. All ages. Info: (407) 228-1220 or visit

  “The final song of the night was “Night Train” from 2005’s Fever on the Bayou which Benoit jammed on for over ten minutes with explosive guitar licks. It was a bring down the house conclusion,” wrote Blues Rock Revue in their recent review of Benoit’s show in Salem, OR. 

  “Tab Benoit has been a frequent Lincoln visitor over the three-plus decades that he’s been bringing his brand of blues out of Louisiana. Known for his distinctive guitar tone and fiery playing, he’s a powerhouse vocalist who sounds something like Otis Redding,” writes the Lincoln Journal-Star.

  “Benoit took the stage, and within ten minutes the rain slowed to a drizzle, then stopped completely.  Blues From The Top 1, Mother Nature 0,” writes Denver Entertainment Hub’s Rick Witt. “From his set opening “Why Are People Like That” to his encore “Medicine”, Benoit had the delighted crowd swinging, singing, and swaying. Benoit’s set was the perfect culmination of three fabulous days of extraordinary music at an extraordinary venue in an idyllic location”.
