Adam Holt & The Blues Congregation will take over the stage on April 16th. . After a 17-year absence and three original members lost, Adam Holt & The Blues Congregation have re-emerged to bring back their brand of authentic traditional blues to the gulf coast region. Before becoming a regular on the local music scene, musician and singer Adam Holt got his start playing blues in his early twenties with friends and mentors Henry Jolley and Paul Williams. Williams was the bass player of the original trio before the band expanded to a larger ensemble to include John Brock on harmonica and Bo Roberts on piano and B3. Holt separated from the band to venture out into other genres of music that included a variety of rock and roll, blues, classic country, and Americana. Since then, Williams, Brock, and Roberts have all passed on and now Adam Holt, playing guitar and harmonica, along with Henry Jolley on drums, have teamed up with bassist Jon Wells and guitarist Roger Fritz to bring the second coming of The Blues Congregation.’
