365 Things To Do In Wheeling.

#21.  Live Show. 

When's the last time you went to a live show?  Actual live show in a venue with seats and a couple thousand other people?

Well hold to your hats, because there is a show this weekend in Downtown Wheeling that will blow your mind.

Ghost of the Blues.

In their words -

Ghost of the Blues” is a Broadway style musical review, which tells the history of the blues thru the lyrics of the most famous blues songs, which are performed in the character of the greatest legendary blues singers.
ACT 1 Takes place in a fog filled graveyard, the entrance to Willie Dixon’s Blues Heaven.
James Armstrong has recently joined the cast to play the part of John Lee Hooker in the first Act.
Stacy Brooks, from Washington DC, plays Etta James in the most extraordinary way.
ACT 2 Takes place in a fictional Blues roadhouse, The Canal House, which transforms the stage into a juke joint, where the artists put on an authentic blues show, as it was done “back in the day”.
Biscuit Miller plays Willie Dixon in the second act and is joined onstage, by Albert King, played by Big Jim Jacobs in the show. Little Walter, Koko Taylor, Robert Johnson, are all on the Ghost stage!
Keeping the Blues alive in the most rollicking, traditional way is the mission of “Ghost of the Blues”.
If you like theatre, music or just love to have a good time on a Saturday night, don’t miss the Ghost Train! We leave the Capitol Theatre Station at 8:00P.M. on May 17th, 2014 so don’t be late!
