Black Joe Lewis, Dex Romweber Duo

When: Tue., Sept. 10, 8 p.m. 2013

Black Joe Lewis creates horn-laden swing against a gritty blooze backdrop. The band is tighter than Spanx, in the vein of the Daptones and Dynamites. Of course, the frontman is crucial to any funk outfit, and Lewis possesses the requisite shuffling, scrappy, irrepressible charm. He's not blustery like JB, but rather more wheedling, like a blues singer on the make. After two albums for Lost Highway, Lewis moved to the indies for the band's latest, Electric Shave, which brings out more of his Screamin' Jay Hawkins side. Opener Dex Romweber's guitar mastery and wide blues-country-rockabilly repertoire has made him a local legend. —Chris Parker
