NIXON PARK: Blues band takes the stage

The July 13 free concert at Anson B. Nixon Park in Kennett had a smaller-than-usual attendance because of the iffy weather, but the rain held off for the show by Jane Lee Hooker, a five-woman blues band from New York City. We were amazed at the way they maintained their sky-high, hard-rocking energy level throughout their 90-minute set (no intermission). They must have been absolutely sweltering up there on the stage. The lead singer, Dana Athens, said they'd be selling CDs after the show as well as shirts with the band's logo -- and the shirts would be dry, "unlike ours."
