Known for their weekly gigs and jam sessions on Folly and James Island, local soul/blues combo Sarah Cole and the Hawkes kick off their own weekly residency on the other side of town this week. Starting this week, Cole, guitarist/vocalist Jesse Prichard, and drummer Jim Donnelly bring their jazzy mix of electric blues, swing, rock, and R&B to Art’s Bar & Grill in Mt. Pleasant (413 Coleman Blvd.) every Wednesday night at 10 p.m. Influenced by such blues and rock greats as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Bonnie Raitt, Susan Tedeschi, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd, guitarist/vocalist Cole is a notable hometown talent. Expect a varied set of standards, deep cuts, and originals. See myspace.com/thahawkes for more.
