Members of blues and soul artist Curtis Salgado's band will usher in the new year at Alex's Plaza Restaurant and Bar.

Guitarist Vyasa Dodson, former frontman of the Insomniacs, and drummer Brian Foxworth as well as bassist John Mazzocco will play at 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 31, at the restaurant, 35 N. Main St., Ashland. (Mazzocco is a former member of Salgado's band The Stilettos and a veteran of John Lee Hooker's Coast to Coast Blues Band.)

At Alex's, the trio will play what they know best — the blues. There will be soul, R&B, old-school blues, originals and covers, including ones by Jimmy Reed, Donny Hathaway and Stevie Wonder. And all the music will be danceable, Dodson says.
