Selwyn Birchwood excels on vocals, guitar and perhaps most importantly, stage presence. This blues (young) man is an outstanding entertainer who wows crowds with everything from chops to charm to spectacles like crawling along the stage on his back while soloing.

Based in Tampa, The Selwyn Birchwood Band took top honors at the 2013 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tenn. The win placed the group first out of more than 240 bands from around the world. In addition, Birchwood won the Albert King Award for “Best Guitarist.”

​8:30 p.m. Saturday; The Blue Rooster, 1525 4th St., Sarasota; $10; 388-7539; blueroostersrq.com.
