This may be the weirdest billing of bands ever, but on Saturday, Jan. 7, 2012 at The Boardwalk (9426 Greenback Lane in Orangevale) there is sure to be some fun had at the “Backyard Blues and Hip-hop Review,” put on by James Allen Productions. In one night, and for only $10 in advance or $15 at the door, you’ll experience a mash-up of blues music from performers like Fillmore Slim, Forrest Barnes, Sunny Blue Band and more as well as live hip-hop from acts like Cowboy and A Thug (pictured), Swiss Thebigcheez, Juana Blaze and others. There will be plenty of hickory smoked barbecue and proceeds from ticket sales go to the Sounds of Heaven.
