Black Joe Lewis brings the blues and funk to the Social just in time for a hurricane party

Hailing from Austin, Texas, Black Joe Lewis – along with backing band the Honeybears – specializes in a bluesy garage soul revival that defies release dates on record, sounding simultaneously fresh and retro. Live, though, the band is known for figuratively setting themselves on fire to get a crowd moving. Anchored by a rock-steady rhythm section, the group is bolstered by energetic horn stabs and Lewis’ virtuosic guitar and James Brown-meets-Muddy Waters shouts. Make no mistake: This is a party band whose raison d’etre is to take you down to booty city. North Carolina’s Lightnin’ Malcolm, stepping into the spotlight after a few years playing with
R.L. Burnside’s grandson Cedric, opens.

with Lightnin’ Malcolm | 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 8 | The Social, 54 N. Orange Ave. | 407-246-1419 | | $15
