Taj Mahal Trio (copy)

The Taj Mahal Trio is still on schedule to perform at the Charleston Music Hall on Wednesday, Sept. 19.

When I started this column, I was excited to tell y’all about all the cool things happening this weekend, but then Hurricane Florence happened. Since she will likely do the cha-cha slide all across our state and things have been canceled, I can at least tell you what, as of press time, has been rescheduled, what has simply been postponed and what is still going in as planned.

Comedian Steven Wright's Thursday performance at Charleston Music Hall has beenrescheduled for Thursday, Oct. 11.

That’s still what I’m doing. The end.” With his kinked curly hair and slow, distinctive voice, Wright’s “off-beat” comedy has earned him Grammy nominations for Best Comedy Album 2008 and Best Comedy Recording 1987, Emmy nominations for “Louie” and “Rolling Stone” named him one of the 50 Best Standup Comics of All Time.

He’s got a tradition of “keepin’ it country” and this tour won’t be any different, especially with singer-songwriter Randy Houser getting things started. Houser is touring in promotion of his soon-to-be-released fifth studio album, “Magnolia.” This event has been postponed and will be rescheduled.

What’s still on schedule?

Django Reinhardt Review

Stephane Wrembel

Stephane Wrembel will present the Django Reinhardt Review at the Charleston Music Hall on Tuesday.

Django Reinhardt, the stage name for Jean Reinhardt, was born to Belgian gypsy parents in 1910 and raised outside Paris’ old city walls. He began playing a guitar-banjo hybrid at a young age, but when he was 18 years old, he burned fingers on his left hand, as well as large part of his right side (waist-to-knee), in a freak fire. During months and months of recovery, he played guitar, but had to teach himself to play focusing primarily on mobility of the two good (non-paralyzed) fingers on his left hand and his thumb. This is where the jazz guitarist’s infamous style and technique were born.

In tribute, the Stephane Wrembel Band will present the Django Reinhardt Review at the Charleston Music Hall on Tuesday. Wrembel specializes in Reinhardt’s style of finger-picking and is best known for his Grammy-winning composition “Bistro Fada,” the theme song for Woody Allen’s Oscar-winning film, “Midnight in Paris,” which won the 2014 Grammy for Best Soundtrack.

WHEN: 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 18

WHERE: Charleston Music Hall, 37 John St., downtown Charleston

PRICE: $15-$19

Taj Mahal

Taj Mahal

Taj Mahal 

Taj Mahal has “nearly singlehandedly reshaped the definition and scope of the blues.” And the Taj Mahal Trio will bring that transfiguration to the Charleston Music Hall on Wednesday. When you look up blues legend Taj Mahal, he’s so bad-to-the-bone that his biography is broken down into four sections, each containing his achievements within a decade (or two). The 76-year-old began his career in 1961 and has been featured on more than 80 albums, including his own, soundtracks and tribute albums. His music is a fusion of genres, “mixing a spicy concoction of Afrocentric roots music, a blues gumbo kissed by reggae,” with a little bit of everything else dropped in at times (Latin, Cajun, calypso, jazz, gospel and more). This blend can be seen in the types of musicians he’s collaborated with over the years: B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt, Carly Simon, the Rolling Stones, Leftover Salmon, Ziggy Marley & The Melody Makers, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Eric Clapton and Wynton Marsalis, as well as poet Langston Hughes. Opening the show will be a young new bluesman on the scene, Jontavious Willis out of Georgia.

WHEN: 8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19

WHERE: Charleston Music Hall, 37 John St., downtown Charleston

PRICE: $39.50-$59.50
