Joey DeFrancesco

Punxsutawney Phil may have spotted his shadow yesterday, but if it means more 60-plus-degree days, we’ll take it.

And as the winter blazes on (with the threat of heavy storms today, even!), things will be hot inside Legacy Blues tonight, too.

Considered by many to be the best jazz organist in the world, Joey DeFrancesco and his Hammond B3 organ will roll into Fayetteville for a show tonight (Feb. 3) at the blues club. The longtime frontman and one-time member of Miles Davis’ band has released more than 25 studio recordings. The concert takes place from 7-9 p.m. Admission is $30 or $25 for North Arkansas Jazz Society members. The show is sold out, but you can call 587-8981 to be placed on a waiting list.

What else?

The husband-and-wife songwriting team of Stacey Earle and Mark Stuart will return to GoodFolk Productions tonight. Admission to that show is $15 and it begins at 7:30. Reservations should be made by calling 521-1812.

Saturday (2/4) brings another installment of the Mudstomp Records festival, which includes artists such as Mountain Sprout, Ben Miller Band and more. That event takes place at George’s Majestic Lounge.

And on Sunday (2/5), pre-Super Bowl, of course, Emily Kaitz performs at Terra Studios in Durham. That show takes place from 1-4 p.m.

What’s on your agenda?
