Well hope that everyone’s Thanksgiving will be a great one. Many of us are fortunate to have families and friends to gather ’round, but many others do not have friends or family, or memories that are not that sweet – to them we send out hugs and wish you the very best of times even though these are hard moments. Thank you Joseph Veloz for mentioning this to us.
Next week we head back home to SC and then turn around and scoot to Florida for the Bradenton Blues Festival. Always a fave of ours, we also get to spend time with good friends and visit with the corporate headquarters of Blues Music Magazine. Ya know we share their airwaves on Live365.com and Mojowax radio so y’all be good to them cos they help bring A Baker’s Dozen of Blues and many more cool shows to your ears.
The new addition is from The John Weeks Band.
Our ‘Amuse Bouche’ this week features the artists that are performing at the Bradenton Blues Festival. Always a favorite of ours, it is a one day fest (with a free Friday) featuring some of the top artists around the blues block. So we thought we would give y’all a chance to get your Bradenton on via our Amuse Bouche.
BUT WAIT – there’s more! When we spoke of the Otis Taylor Trance fest we had lots of mail an messages about what exactly is Trance Blues. Well we offer a short explanation but then give you the song the Otis and the Trance Fest Soul Choir sang at the concert… 10 Million Slaves ….
One other thing that we are doing on MojoWax Radio — we have a new show called ‘Classic Blues’. It features blues songs that are classic in nature and scope. Most will be familiar but not all are moldy oldies, some are contemporary versions of classics, while others may surprise you. It will run Friday starting at 3:00 am, and again at 7:00pm, Saturday starting at 10:00am and once more time at 8:oopm, Sunday starts at Noon, and Monday 6:30pm. It’s four hours of music to help satisfy your soul.
