The Ponderosa Stomp continues its Congo Mambo series with R&B and bluesmen Herman Hitson (pictured) and Chick Willis and his backing band, the Lonely Knights, who will open with their own set. Hitson emerged with his Sterophonics band in 1959, cut an unreleased album with Jimi Hendrix sitting in, and later toured with Joe Tex's band. Willis played in his cousin Chuck Willis' band and eventually went out on his own, releasing the hit "Stoop Down Baby." Tickets $10
