Keep the Torch Burning


Aaron King is a Sacramento treasure. He’s lit up local clubs for the better part of two decades with his incredible blues guitar, and by doing so has carved a permanent notch on the region’s musical bedpost. He’s also a full-fledged politico by day, slapping on the suit to wheel and deal under the dome of the Capitol. If he’s not a product of our fabulous town, I don’t know who is.

If you’d like to see him lay down some nasty guitar licks (you probably don’t want to see him try to push a budget bill through) drop by the always-reliable Torch Club on Thursday nights. Aaron is joined by bass-master and bandleader Harley White Jr. And, if you haven’t stepped foot in the Torch for about 20 years, don’t worry, it hasn’t changed.
