Members of Portland blues band Suburban Slim have individually and collectively been awarded 23 Muddy Awards — including best male vocalist and best harmonica in 2012 — by the Cascade Blues Association.

The four-piece unit — which typically features guitarist Phil "Suburban Slim" Wagner, harmonica player Jim Wallace, bassist John Neish and drummer Dave Melyan, has performed in small clubs and on large festival stages in the United States and Europe.

The band will present its soulful originals — which range from Chicago- and Texas-style blues to rock and R&B — at 9 p.m. New Year's Eve, Tuesday, Dec. 31, at Alex's Plaza Restaurant, 35 N. Main St., Ashland.

The cover costs $10 and includes party favors. Call 541-482-8818.
