Raleigh Blues Festival: Sir Charles Jones, Pokey Bear, Theodis Easley, Nelson Curry & the Klass Band, Calvin Richardson, Big Robb

When: Sat., March 12, 7 p.m. 2016

Enough already—this ain’t no blues festival. At best, the so-called Raleigh Blues Festival, now in its ninth year, is an old-school R&B revival, and even that is a stretch. Sir Charles Jones has plenty of seventies soul, suggesting the Chi-Lites backing Teddy Pendergrass. It’s too lush for the blues. Theodis Ealey says he always wanted to be Chuck Berry, but he comes across more like Clarence Carter, slipping away. —Grant Britt

Price: $52-$77
