Ahoy shipmates,

Just back from the International Blues Challenge to cheer on our pals The Blues Disciples and Alex Wilson who tore it up.  I was honored to be a guest of The Ghost Town Blues Band at the Road Dawg Touring Showcase.  Thanks to The Blues Disciples and Matthew Wilson for helping me out.  

Came home to the news that The CSAB's garnered another Shepherd Express Readers Poll for Best Blues Band.  Thanks to everyone that made it possible.
