Led by the passionate vocalist and songwriter Deb Callahan, Philadelphia-based blues/soul combo Deb Callahan Band returns to Charleston in support of their latest disc is titled Grace & Grit (which follows last year’s funky The Blue Pearl). Callahan, guitarist Allen James, drummer Tom Walling, and bassist Garry Lee swung through town last February as part of the Lowcountry Blues Bash. The new album landed on the Living Blues Radio Chart last winter and found regular rotation on the XM/Sirius Bluesville station. The band’s smooth blend of blues-rock, honky-tonk, and old-school R&B compares well to the musical stylings of Bonnie Raitt, Tina Turner, the Staples Singers, early Linda Ronstadt, and Otis Redding. Showtime is 9:30 p.m. See adoughremi.com and debcallahanband.com for more.
