‘Hometown boys’ set to be opener for Bowlful of Blues
With all of the big names taking part in the upcoming 21st Annual Bowlful of Blues show on Aug. 31, one band may have a louder reception than the others. Newton’s own Poppa Neptune opens the show at noon with a guest appearance from Detroit’s Larry Davidson, a Quad City native and virtuoso on the harp.
Poppa Neptune consists of Trent Derby (drums), Lee Eckles (bass), Veronica Hanson (vocals), Mark Hembry (keyboards), and Nick Knudsen (guitar and vocals), and they are excited about the guest appearance from Davidson.
“We met him at a show in Davenport,” Knudsen said. “He came with a friend of his and watched us play. Somebody told us he was a heck of a good harp player and that I should invite up to the next show. And, yeah man, he is amazing.”
