Enjoy a delicious brunch at Mattison’s Riverwalk Grille while listening to the Divebombers featuring George Worthmore, a New York Blues Hall of Fame inductee and 2018 International Blues Challenge semi-finalist.
Mattison’s Blues Brunch happens every 4th Sunday of each month. This month is a special one featuring the world-renowned, incomparable blues of George Worthmore. George is a local resident and heads up the Divebombers band that plays up and down the Suncoast.
The Divebombers play the music of George Jones, Johnny Cash, Jerry Reed, Merle Travis, Chet Atkins, and Non-Fat Elvis with instrumental virtuosity and an irresistible sense of fun.
Worthmore, a fingerpicking wizard, has played with everyone from Kinky Friedman to the Platters and owned a blues club in Africa where he brought in famous players from all over the world. He’s backed up Ben E. King, rocked out with Ace Frehley of KISS, and played with rock founding father Bo Diddley.
His over 20- year career in the New York City music scene began with a one-year stint as a guitarist with Kinky Friedman. He’s played backup guitar for Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Lou Christy, and the Platters. He also stood in as “the other guy” with Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Cassidy in Hot Tuna.
Here are what famous musicians say about him.
“…. the darlings of the Sarasota music scene”
“….as cool as the other side of the pillow.”
“Chet Atkins on Steroids”
Jim Weider (the Band) – “George is really a charismatic performer.”
Roy Book Binder – “I’d sell my soul to the devil to play like George Worthmore.”
Mattison’s Brunch menu features items such as Stuffed French Toast, Roasted Veggie Frittatas and Niman Ranch Steak and Eggs. Niman Ranch beef is hormone and antibiotic free, part of Chef Paul Mattison’s commitment to serving top quality, clean, humanely raised products. Bloody Mary’s and Mimosa’s are $5 and Mattison’s proudly serves local Mixon Fruit Farms Orange Juice and Grapefruit Juice. Happy Hour is from 11-7. What a great way to spend a Sunday!
