Ahoy shipmates, 

The USS Nevermore has returned to port Milwaukee after a long three week tour filled with an endless sea of wheat, corn, mountains, rivers, dancing dervishes, and lots of great blues friends.  Montana was great, Minot, Winnipeg and finally the Bayfront Blues Festival to cap it off.  Westside Andy, PT and Craig tore it up as usual.  The dance floors were full and we sold out a bunch of rooms thanks to the efforts of Kris Raymond at Record Events and Betsie Brown at Blind Raccoon.   Big Fun but we’re glad to be home and ready to play on home turf for awhile.

 

 

 

The return of Madison Slim.

Slim has moved back to Wisconsin and will be playing with us on Tuesday, August 21st at the Italian Community Center, Milwaukee at 6:30pm.  Slim is a veteran of the Legendary Blues Band, The Sam Lay Band and the Jimmy Rogers Band.  He is featured on our new CD "My Life", "Live at the Blues on Grand" and his recent CD "Close But No Cigar".  Benny Rickun will also be on the show.  One of the best harp players of his generation he is also featured on "My Life" and "Big Bee".
