The Jive Bombers take the stage this Friday, Aug. 20, presenting the next concert in the La Encantada Summer Concert Series.

It is described as "one of Tucson's most rockin' blues bands," with members in the Arizona Blues Hall of Fame, according to a release.

The Jive Bombers are Rebecca Carlson, vocals; Mike Blommer, guitar and vocals; Steve Grams, bass and vocals; Glenn Velardi, drums; and Johnny Strausser, vocals, harmonica and slide guitar. They play "a mix of blues and swing, with a little funk and roots, to create a sound that will get concert-goers up and moving for a combination that leaves you satisfied yet still wanting more."

Friday's show starts at 7 p.m. in the La Encantada garden courtyard. Individual tickets are $10 in advance and $11 the day of the show.
