An Beal Bocht Cafe Presents:

Jerry Dugger! Fri. Aug. 24 @9pm

Jerry was born in The Bronx and raised in Harlem. He caught the music bug early in life, listening to his parents Ida and Alfonza sing around the house, singing with them in church, and listening to their collection of 78rpm records. 


Through an amazing set of circumstances, a late night walk through Washington Square Park and a life changing encounter with Matteus Mederer (who was busking under the arch),  Jerry found himself being introduced to the New York City Blues scene and Dan Lynch Blues Bar.

He spent thirteen years studying The Blues there, watching and performing with Bill Dicey, The Holmes Brothers and eventually hosting the Saturday and Sunday afternoon jam sessions. This little bar became the hub of the Blues scene in NYC. Many legendary Blues musicians, Johnny Copeland, James Cotton, Hubert Sumlin, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, just to name a few, stopped by to hang out and sing a song on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Dan lynch was also the launching pad for many up and coming Blues artists. 

These days Jerry's work is focused in the Tri State area and Europe, He works regularly at The Red Lion and Lucilles Grille at B. B. Kings Blues Club Times Square. His Bands, The Dugger Brothers, The Harlem Blues Project, The Acoustic Blues Caravan and MoonShine String Band are great vehicles for his voice and eclectic musical tastes.
