The sixteenth annual Mr. B's Blues & Boogie Celebration returns to the Ark. Besides A2’s own piano giant, Mark Braun, AKA Mr. B, the weekend will also feature octogenarian blues grandmaster Bob Seeley, and pianists from both coasts; LA’s Fred Kaplan and NY’s Mark Katz. Mr. B says, “This year we have three guys—besides Bob, who is our elder statesman—coming from the same generation of pianists, with somewhat similar experiences in terms of how we came up learning how to play blues piano.” Katz has played in the bands of Greg Allman, John Hammond, Delbert McClinton, and other blues greats, while Kaplan, a member of the famed Hollywood Fats Band is renowned for his mastery of West Coast blues styles. Seeley, who has toured all over the US and Europe, is a fixture at this annual event. 7:30pm. $25. The Ark, 316 S. Main St. 734-761-1818. www.theark.org —SS
