Fans of twangy guitar, blues, and jazz with a country bottom will be out in force Saturday night at the Village Idiot to see Grammy-winning guitarist Pete Anderson.
The Detroit native is best known for his work with country musician Dwight Yoakam in the 1980s and '90s -- Anderson was the guy playing the smoking hot Telecaster and giving Yoakam's music a muscular Bakersfield sound -- but his solo releases are just as intriguing.
The most recent "Even Things Up" is a genre-crossing exercise in rock, blues, jazz, and a bit of country.
He also has produced or backed Lucinda Williams, the Backsliders, Rosie Flores, Jim Lauderdale, and Michelle Shocked, among others, and is a Grammy-winning producer. And he also has a signature guitar sold through Reverend Guitars, a Detroit-area company led by Toledoan Ken Haas.
Anderson's band will include Greg Hanna on bass, Jack Maeby on organ and keyboards, and Jesper Kristensen on drums.
The Village Idiot is at 309 Conant St. in Maumee. The show will start at about 7 p.m. and admission is $7. The Zimmerman Twins will be the opening act.
