Sammons Jazz turns blue with the Roger Boykin Band in a dazzling opening set, followed by the Red Young and Brannen Temple Show. Boykin, a multi-instrumentalist who also served as Sammons Artistic Director, fell in love with the blues as a teenager listening to B.B. King. His A-list band includes vocalist Rachel Dupard, electric bassist Joseph Goff, pianist Miriam Morales, and drummer Herman Samples.

The blues command the second set, too, with Red Young on Hammond organ and vocals and Brannen Temple on drums. The duo share more than their Texas roots; these outstanding artists play a variety of genres and they both toured with blues-rock legend, Eric Burdon.
