Comprising a murderers’ row of blues veterans, the five-piece ensemble Joe Blue and the Roof Shakers brings a wild energy to performances. It’s busted out stone-cold classics since 2006, imbuing favorites like “La Grange,” “Mardi Gras in New Orleans” and “Pride and Joy” with a raucous, lived-in strut. Harmonica, horns, dirty guitars, nimble bass and skittering drums roil together in an irresistible stew of blues, classic rock and rhythm and blues. Listening to the Fabulous Roof Shakers, as they’re also known, delivering a sizzling take on the Standells’ “Dirty Water,” it’s hard not to come away a fan.
