Westbury Arts’ FREE Summer Concert Series: HITMAN BLUES BAND

July 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Get ready for a summer of blues and rock with the HITMAN BLUES BAND! Rain Venue: Westbury Arts, 255 Schenck Ave.

Welcome to the Westbury Arts FREE Summer Concert Series featuring the Hitman Blues Band! Join us on Wednesday, July 17, 2024, at 7:00 PM at the beautiful Piazza Ernesto Strada for a night of amazing music and good vibes.

Join with neighbors and friends as we enjoy the melodies of New York City native Russell Alexander, the master guitarist, singer, and songwriter and his Hitman Blues Band.

Russell worked as a freelancer 25 nights a month for years, flying all over the country and playing orchestral swing, country, jazz, rock, Hasidic music, Salsa, Greek, and more. Whenever a band got a request that they didn’t know, Russell did. “I got a nickname as the Hitman because I knew all the hits,” he said.

He could play anything professionally, but for fun, Russell played blues. When he showed up for jam sessions at the Chicago Blues Club wearing a tux and hat, the jam co-host would yell, “It’s Hitman Russ!” When Russell finally got a chance to build his dream project, it could only be called The Hitman Blues Band.

7 albums and countless tours later, thousands of fans confirm it was the right choice.

This is a great opportunity to unwind and enjoy a summer evening with friends and family. Get ready to groove to the blues with the talented musicians of the Hitman Blues Band. Don’t miss out on this unforgettable evening under the stars!
