Lil Ed and the Blues Imperials

Lil Ed Williams might play the blues but he decidedly steers clear of clichés about being broke and desperate. Rather, the guy revels in letting the good times roll. For the bulk of his career, which started way back in 1986 with his appropriately titled debut Roughhousin’, Williams has embraced blues’ rowdy, roadhouse side. Last year’s Jump Start kicks off with “If You Were Mine,” a high-octane number for which Williams cranks up his guitar, and never lets up as Williams indulges in a little Stevie Ray Vaughan-like blues on “Kick Me to the Curb” and consistently keeps the energy level high. The Winchester Tavern, where Williams returns tonight with his backing band The Blues Imperials, is a seated venue. But you can bet Williams — a veteran showman who is a staple at summer blues festivals — will have the crowd up and off its feet from the first note. (Jeff Niesel)
