Michael Ledbetter pumps out so much sticky soul in his voice, that it adds 20 years to his youthful look. And all while Nick Moss' tight blues grooves have made him a 16-time Blues Music Award nominee with the likes of Buddy Guy diggin' his sound. The band is fresh, unique and funky. Earlier this year, it opened two shows for Gary Clark Jr. bumping their contemporary blues cred and getting a respectful nod from Clark himself. They've put out a dozen or so albums on Moss' own Blue Bella label, and it all started with "First Offense," back in 1998. It's nasty, dancin' blues.
The Nick Moss Band plays Wednesday, July 15, at Dinosaur BBQ, 99 Court Street. 9 p.m. Free. dinosaurbarbq.com; nickmoss.com.
