[image-1]Local blues/rock singer and harmonica player Andy “Smoky” Weiner, some of his Hot Links bandmates, and special guests will host a weekly jam at Bowens Island (1870 Bowens Island Rd.) starting on Wed. April 1 at 8 p.m. A longtime blues-rock staple in Charleston, the Hot Links specialize in an upbeat mix of blues-rock, surf, rockabilly, swing, and twang.

“The restaurant and bar will be open for this,” says Smoky. “There will be a P.A., drums, bass, and amps to use but you must bring your own instrument, drum sticks or whatever else you may want to bring. Blues, jazz, rock, bluegrass, folk … we are open to anything, as long as you have some way to pull it off.” Admission is $3.

Call Smoky at (843) 330-4066 or Bowens Island at (843) 795-2757 for the whole lowdown.
