Though it’d be tempting for him to be a family tribute act, Jimmie Vaughan, older brother to guitar legend Stevie Ray Vaughan, has retained his own distinct style. He also offers listeners something novel: good music to dance to. Growing up in Dallas, Vaughan credits his musical abilities to hearing vintage blues, classic rock ’n’ roll and jazz at an early age—not to mention the radio stations in his area that played the good records. “I never got over that stuff,” Vaughan once said, “and I never will.” Hear songs like “Six Strings Down” and “Don’t ‘cha Know” on Friday, May 24, at Hopmonk Tavern. 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. $45. 8pm. 707.829.7300.
