Jackie Greene Joins Tim and Nicki Bluhm
Bay Area singer-songwriter Nicki Chambly was married to the Mother Hips’ Tim Bluhm over Halloween weekend and the honeymoon must not be over. For Nicki Bluhm’s performance this past Saturday night at San Francisco’s Hotel Utah, she was joined for her entire set by new husband Bluhm and his Skinny Singers collaborator Jackie Greene. Bluhm played drums, Greene played bass and the groups set consisted mostly of Nicki’s originals, with a few blues classics thrown in as well.
Bluhm will perform with his longtime band the Mother Hips at Moe’s Alley in Santa Cruz on December 7 and 8. Opening on both nights will be another notable all-star collaboration: Surprise Me Mr. Davis, which consists of The Slip fronted by the Musement’s Nathan Moore.
