Snug Harbor presents
Saturday August 19th, 2023 10:00pm (Doors: 9:30pm)
GRAMMY Award-winning Louisiana musician, actor, author, and entrepreneur Chris Thomas King is a modern blues griot of our time. As the son of famed late swamp blues artist and entrepreneur “Rockin” Tabby Thomas, Chris witnessed his father, a legendary Excello Records recording artist, start his own record label and open his own club, Tabby’s Blues Box in Baton Rouge, LA.

In addition to releasing over two dozen acclaimed records, Chris Thomas King has also appeared in more than a dozen films and television shows, including the award-winning Ray Charles biopic Ray and the hit HBO series Tremé, and most recently, published his first book, The Blues: The Authentic Narrative of My Music and Culture in 2021, his longtime personal project. Beyond his esteem as a traditional blues artist, Chris is also known as the pioneer of rap-blues fusion, having produced the first known sample-based blues concept album, entitled 21st Century Blues… from da Hood in the 1990s, and later creating his own record label under the same name.

Tonight, we welcome Chris and his trio back to the Snug stage for the first time in over 3 years, since before the 2020-2021 pandemic, for a very special homecoming, featuring: 

Chris Thomas King - guitar, piano, vocals
Justin Davi - bass
Darryl White - drums

Shows at 8pm & 10pm.
Doors at 7:00pm & 9:30pm.
