Randy McAllister 

When: Sat., May 7, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $12-15

Grammy-nominated blues rocker Randy McAllister doesn't have the profile you might expect, despite nine studio releases over the last 15 years. The rare bluesy singing drummer, McAllister owe debts to ZZ Top's Texas boogie, Big Easy Cajun grooves and Motown soul. It's a crackle that's rich in hooks, abetted by his deep vocals. He's more interested in songs than your typical blues artist, offering stinging wit on tracks like the bounced check ode "$127.00 Sandwich" and "The Girl Ain't Right," where he thanks the man who stole her. —Chris Parker
