A Baker’s Dozen of Blues: July 27, 2015

BakersDozen15Starting out we want to give a big shout out to Martin ‘Party Marty’ Goettsch, who was our eyes at the Pennsylvania Blues Festival this past weekend. Thise of you who checked out our Facebook page saw his photos live from the scene (all three nights and two days). So next time ya see him tell him thanks and buy him a sasparilla.

This week we got a repeat offender at #1, Ben Rice & Lucy Hammond. Their joint effort has resounded deeply with our audience and takes the top slot two weeks straight – congrats !

With them holding court that means we have only one new debut this week. That is Slam Allen. Slam played guitar for eight years with James Cotton and has that built in blues feel that no one can deny, check him out.

Our Amuse Bouche features various versions of a song. We are calling it “Same Wine, New Bottle” and we have some great stuff here for ya to hear.

We are off to the Riverfront Blues Festival in Wilmington Delaware. We will see a wide and super variety of artists over these two days and three night festival. Brandon Santini, Gary Allegretto, Walter Trout, LowRider Band and many more top flight bands that will excite and incite us. BE sure to check Blues411 on fcebook for pics.

A Baker’s Dozen of Blues: July 20, 2015

BakersDozen15Nice to be back on the web and able to update and post, gotta look at it as the price of fame and popularity (why not). Heady words but this year so far we have had over 1.2M visitors to our site going into this week. Thank you all.

CD circle for FBAlso want to mention, formally, our combined effort with WRUU-Savannah Soundings Radio to bring community radio and the blues to the low country area. We have decided to donate 10 CD’s to the first 10 folks who donate $107.50 to the cause. This will get them along the way of meeting their goal and getting BDOB on air.

So please visit our page (by clicking on photo) and donate what ya can. If ya can spare the $107.50 know you will get some super CDs for the effort, and who knows what else. Thanks and looking forward to bringing the blues to the Low Country of Georgia and South Carolina.

Before we get into this week, I just want to say we have a SmugMug gallery from the Beth McKee show available (click on her name).

This week we offer up big congrats to that dynamic duo from the Pacific Northwest – Ben Rice & Lucy Hammond. This age defying combination of talent has reached the top slot on our BDOB chart for this week. Congrats to them and it’s well deserved.

On the new end of the BDOB spectrum we have 2 new debuts this week. Keeping with the diversity thang here, we offer up the aforementioned Beth McKee and her new release ‘Sugarcane Revival’, and the father of Trance Blues Otis Taylor and his ‘Hey Joe Opus Red Meat’ release. I see these two hanging out for quite some time onour charts, they be that good.

Our Amuse Bouche this week is a look at a very cool festival The Riverfront Blues Festival, in Wilmington, Delaware. It will start Friday, July 31st, thru Sunday August 2nd. As usual it has a sterling line up of blues artists plus a side stage of local artists who can match up with any local bands around. It is always great to see such a high level of local bands – very promising.

Speaking of festivals, the Pennsylvania Blues Festival just celebrated it’s 24th year, happy birthday! Our good buddy Martin Goettsch covered the fest for us (as I was not quite ready to take the 11 hour trip and skip the last few PT sessions). Look for his work on our Blues411 Facebook page and soon to be published SmugMug gallery. Thanks Marty, great work!

A Baker’s Dozen of Blues: July 13,2015

Well it was a lost week for the web site as there was an issue with IP addresses, and such. It was still up and reachable, but it was not available to be updated. So moving on . . .

We did take advantage of an opportunity to see an incredible lady Beth McKee this weekend at Randy Wood’s Old Time Pickin’ Parlor, in Bloomingdale, GA. SCR-squareBeth has just been added to the Chef Suggestions list with her new and exciting release ‘Sugarcane Revival’ I advise you to get your head around this one. Thank you Beth, Randy and all involved for a great time.

This week we offer up big congrats to Mark Telesca as his little engone that could release, Heavy Breathing, takes the top spot. So far this year it has been one of the most pleasant and surprising releases to come our way.

With that we welcome Johnny Riley to our chart. Johnny has been around the blues scene for many years, and hanging in our Chefs Suggestions list. Check his sound out – there’s a good chance you will dig it.

Our Amuse Bouche this week is all about Blues Time. So sit back and dig on some blues tunes that deal with time and hours. Surely gonna make ya smile and look at that old clock on the wall a little differently from now on.

A quick update on our Savannah Radio progress with WRUU-FM. We have registered as a Team Member to help savannahsoundings-53f502dea7d16raise some money for the station in order to get on-line and over the air waves. To that cause we are offering 10 CD’s to the first 10 folks to pledge $107.50 to the station (thru our link) and we will send ya some super CD’s from current blues artists, many you have heard on our show or read about in our pages.
https://www.crowdrise.com/SavannahSoundingsBuildIt/fundraiser/blues411 this is the link to our page
– you can also just donate to help the cause. There are not many (1) blues programs on in our area, we found this to be the perfect opportunity to help bring the blues to the folks of South Carolina, Georgia and the world (still) via the internet partner station.

Also with the funding met and our show on air, we hope to have artists in studio from the area, and travellin’ thru to other gigs. Lots of promise here and if ya can spare some cash or the radio frequency (107.50) pledge you can help the cause and get some seriously cool blues releases. We have lots of folks to thank for this – we will do that later. Until then stop by and lend a hand.
