SEARSMONT — The Juke Joint Devils band is hitting the town with its jump blues and swing party Saturday, Aug. 7, at 4 p.m. on the lawn of the Searsmont Town Library (or in the Community Building if it rains).

Fronted by singer and harmonica player Tommy O’Connell and paired with a smoking hot mystery guitarist, the band is propelled by the booming stand up bass of Andy Buckland and the lean precision of drummer Mark S. Horn. Playing together for 12 years, they draw heavily from the Chicago, Memphis and New Orleans blues music of the 1950s, as well as the modern West Coast style of today. In addition to quintessential chestnuts of the past, the band performs self-penned songs rooted in these iconic styles, infused with a twist informed by the modern American experience.
