The blues rockin’ Al Holbrook Band delivers with grit Friday at Arcadia Blues Club.

The Ohio-born but now Nashville-based keyboardist and singer-songwriter grew up exposed to funk, jazz and classical influences. He’s honed his style over the years to produce a raspy, blues-based sound injected with elements of soul and R&B. His live shows feature a party atmosphere, with each gig offering something new and exciting.

Holbrook and company have become regulars at Nashville hot spots, no small feat in that town.
