It is a vital, live album featuring the music of classic blues artists, such as Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, Memphis Slim and Howling Wolf.
Dave, the Louth keyboard master, is fresh from his success with the reformed Magazine – one of the original New Wave bands of the late 1970s.
In 2009, Magazine performed on Later With Jools Holland and they have been enjoying a tour of the UK this year.
Dave founded Red Bird studios in Louth, where he now resides and writes and produces records, as well as creating soundtracks and other ambient recordings for, among others, the BBC, independent film-makers and the British Film Institute.
Ken Mayle has been instrumental in keeping the live blues spirit alive in Lincolnshire.
He has made a name for himself throughout the UK blues scene, with festival appearances at Colne, and as far afield as France, as well as blues clubs and venues up and down the country.
He will be on vocals and harmonica and will be fronting The Legendary Night Owls along with Jon Newby on guitars, Andy Dalton on bass and Howard Goy on drums.
Keyboard player Dave Tomlinson said: "We are particularly looking forward to playing at the jazz club again – not only because of our sell-out show there last time, but the fact that the club is such an atmospheric and original place to find in a town the size of Louth.
"Sometimes it seems it's almost a secret live-music venue, as a lot of folks are surprised it exists at all when I've talked to them about it.
"The fact that we are playing there for the first time on a Saturday night signals a broadening of the club's overall musical policy for 2013, since Saturday was always a strictly traditional New Orleans jazz night.
"Not that this means that the club will be hosting any Techno, Dub Step or even X Factor talent-style evenings any time soon but, rather, making the venue available to a wider range of complimentary musical styles.
"With a bit of luck this fresh approach will not only bring in a variety of great new bands for people to enjoy at the New Orleans, but also ensure the continuation of this unique Louth club for the long term future."
Tickets for the gig are priced £5 and available from off the Beaten Tracks on Aswell Street, Louth, on 01507 607677 or on the door.
The capacity of the venue is limited so early booking is advisable.
