Drew guitarDrew & Friends Acoustic Variety will be keeping it hot tonight at Jammers Nite Club. We will be featuring the guitar stylings of Tom Sankstone (Rochester, MN) on lead and this means a whole lotta blues will be played tonight. Other guest artists are to be expected and Percussion instruments will be available for participation. The Ensemble may be quite large by the end and the energy radiant enough to melt any accumilation.
