It is really a thrill to me to name the new #1 on the Chef Suggestions List. Toronzo Cannon and his “John The Conquer Root” release.
I have known Toronzo since 2010 (not that long) and I found him to be extremely talented, gracious and funny as all hell! Those are primo qualities for any Bluesman from any era. Congratulations my friend, this is a well deserved honor and long may you run.
We are rapidly approaching the Thanksgiving holiday, time for family and friends but remember those less fortunate than us. If you can please take a second and check to see if you can help those devastated in the Phillipines. Ms. Carolyn Fe (a Tier1 Supporter) has here roots there and asked that each of us think of a way we can help – even if it is prayer or healing thoughts.
Closer to home we have parts of the Midwest and others spots ravished from the wild storms – once again help if you can. Ya know that cup of Joe from Starbuck’s or Peet’s, wherever could do a heck of a lot of good for these folks. Please CONSIDER helping.
Look for some exciting events from Blues411 and Chef Suggestions as we move past the upcoming holiday’s. You will be as excited as I am I guarantee it. Thank you all for the support and love as these past three months we have reached upwards of 18k visitors per month. I am humbled.
