This Sunday’s Blues Vespers at Immanuel Presbyterian Church, Tacoma, features local blues legend Little Bill and the Blue Notes. Usually a trio, the band will expand to include Brian Kent and Scotty Harris on saxophone, Tony Grasso on trumpet and Buck England on B-3 organ to do big band arrangements of Christmas carols.
Blues Vespers combines music, a brief talk and prayer. This Sunday audience members are also encouraged to bring a new unwrapped toy for charity.
5 p.m. Dec. 11. Free, donation suggested. Immanuel Presbyterian Church, 909 N. J St., Tacoma. 253-627-8371, www.ipctacoma.org
