Damon Fowler's 'Sugar Shack Mondays' with Biscuit Miller at Ace's in Bradenton

Damon Fowler, who appeared on the cover of the Herald's Weekend section Thursday, returns from the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise and his CD release party for "Devil Got His Way," Saturday at Skipper's Smokehouse in Tampa, for a superb edition of Sugar Shack Mondays.

The Damon Fowler Group will perform with Dave "Biscuit" Miller and the Mix 8 p.m. Mon., Jan. 31 at Ace's in Bradenton for a free show and webcast.

Miller grew up in Chicago and spent a decade in the great Lonnie Brooks' band performing magor gigs such as President Bill Clinton's inauguration. The Indianapolis, Ind.-based Miller also backed Anthony Gomes before fronting his own group Biscuit Miller and the Mix in 2000.
Biscuit's chop bag is bottomless, and contains everything from mathematically spaced eighth notes, endless permutations of blues walk-ups and downs, thumps, plucks, taps -- you name it, it's in there.
And Biscuit is just like sunshine, just being in his presence makes you feel good. Hearing him play makes you want to go home and practice.

The Jan. 31 edition of Damon Fowler's Sugar Shack Mondays will be the last to actually feature Fowler performing until he gets back from some East Coast dates for a Feb. 14 Ace's appearance, and then not until April 4, when he returns from an international tour taking him to Italy, Canada and across the U.S.
