A Baker’s Dozen of Blues, April 14, 2014

A Baker's Dozen Of Blues

A Baker’s Dozen Of Blues

A great weekend of blues, R&B, food and friends at the Tampa Bay Blues Festival.  A big thank you to Chuck Ross and the mighty mighty crew who helped make this one helluva weekend.  The VIP section was amazing, the food and beverages were plentiful and the music was all outstanding. Those who missed it, missed one epic festival, so plan on being there next year.

We got ourselves one dynamic lady at the #1 spot, Ms. Shaun Murphy with her ‘Cry Of Love’ release. If ya haven’t given her music a serious listen, then where have ya been. Get it, own it and enjoy it!

Making their air play debuts are James Armstrong and Sunday Wilde, two extremely talented artists who deserve full attention. Our Chef Suggestions list we have a talented threesome of Norman Taylor, Polly O’Keary, and Joe Louis Walker. Look for rapid movement from these artists as the weeks go on. Tomorrow is April 15th…..we all know that’s the day we get held upside down and shaken till we have no change left in our pockets. Tax Day. So to help ease the pain we will feature songs about money and taxes in our Amuse Bouche portion, hope it helps. We dug deep here just to get a nice rounded sampling of tunes, ya might be surprised at some of them, at least we hope so.

Getting ready on awards day did not involve sitting around plucking and preening! No way – we hit the halls for some hellos, then hit breakfast and then off to Court Square for an acoustic set by Jeff Jensen & Brandon Santini.

B.B. King’s was showcasing Yellow Dog Recording Artists Colin Linden (who is amazingly talented in so many ways), Mary Flower (guitar player extraordinaire and thank you for comments) and the Eden Brent BMA Award winning piano player/singer/songwriter.

Back to the hotel to buy drink tickets (ahem)  and some more visiting, then dress up time and on to awards. Photos to come from that!



Until next time,

Good Times:2012 BMA’s Night One

Holy crap, if this first night is any indicator of hat to expect for the rest of the week – LOOKOUT ! ! ! !

Very nice to see old friends, and meet new ones and to see and hear them playing the music they love. At the Rum Boogie they threw down hard, featuring blistering sets by Dave Keller, Vincent Hayes, Johnny Childs, then a spanking full set by Davina & The Vagabonds fresh from Jazz Fest – and that was the pre-courser to The Nick Moss Jam.

While the Rum Boogie was jammin’ and slammin’ The Hard Rock featured some of Nashville’s finest players, featuring Anson Funderberg, Andy T, “Nick” Nixon, Markey, Whitey Johnson plus IBC  contestant and Gibson Guitar Awards winner Bart Walker, and some fine guest spots by Janiva Magness, and Joe Louis Walker. Having seen these cats at the IBC’s I am still impressed by the level of talent they possess and how they bring it on hard each time.

Nick and the band killed it till we couldn’t take it anymore. Folks, this band is so tight you could bounce a quarter off the sheet of sound they create and it would hit the ceiling!  Then the in earnest jam  began. Scintillating vocals by Mary Bridget Davies with Vincent Hayes & Kevin Selfe on guitars exploded as Jimi Bott performed drum aerobics, while Kennan Shaw held the bottom in place. Other fine musicians came and went each providing their special sauce to the Memphis stew that was cookin’ up hot last night.  An outstanding short set by masterful vocalist Curtis Salgado melted everyone’s faces and signaled time for this boy to get on the road back to the hotel.

Look for Photo Gallery shortly !
