Local Blues duo to perform August 23, 2014 in “BLUE!” exhibit gallery
As part of the “BLUE!” performance series, Jill West and Gregg Krupa (members of the Pittsburgh-based blues band Jill West & Blues Attack) will be bringing their blues tinged music to the “BLUE!” exhibit gallery for a 1:00 p.m. show.
“BLUE!” performances are sponsored by Dollar Bank and are free with paid general admission to the Science Center and are held every Saturday in August.
“BLUE!” runs through Jan. 1, 2015, and is included with general admission. The immersive, hands-on exhibit features molded foam blocks of all shapes and sizes, from small enough to use on a tabletop to huge enough to climb on – and all blue. Visit CarnegieScienceCenter.org for more details.
About Jill West & Blues Attack
Jill West & Blues Attack’s musical style has been said to be similar to that of B.B. King, the Vaughan Brothers, and Muddy Waters. The group has performed across the tri-state area and has opened for many national acts. Lead vocalist Jill West has a dynamic sound range that engages audiences. Gregg Krupa serves as lead guitarist and vocalist. He has been compared to Stevie Ray Vaughan and Eric Clapton, but he really shines when playing original pieces for listeners.
