Juke in the Back

Nov 6, 2021 5:00 AM – 6:00 AM

Music

1940s & ’50s Rhythm & Blues

At the end of the Second World War, economics forced the big bands to trim their once great size and thus, the Jump Blues combo was born. Between 1946-1954, rhythm and blues laid the tracks for what was to become Rock n’ Roll. So why, 70 years later, is this vibrant and influential music still unknown to so many people?

Host Matt The Cat aims to change that. These were the records that you couldn’t hear on the jukebox in the front of the establishment. To hear all this great 1950s rhythm & blues, you had to go to the “Juke In The Back.”
