We've got a lot of our favorite harp and sax players sitting in this spring and summer.  Check the schedule to see if it's Big Al Groth, Westside Andy, Benny Rickun or Steve Vonderharr.  I love em all


The Up & Under Blues Reunion will be held at Kochanski's Beer Hall on Sunday from 2pm - 6:30pm.  Four great bands forced my hand to increase the cover charge to $15 from $10.  It's a great deal and will be a ball.   Danno will be working the door too.  Here's the poster.  Please pass it around:

The Fox Valley Scene Magazine put my scruchy old face on the cover of their February issue.  Thanks Jim Lundstrom and crew. Good review of the guitar book by my friend and cohort Bobby Evans.  Read it at:  http://www.scenenewspaper.com/

Got back from the IBC challenge in Memphis on Monday after a long train ride thru the night in a sleeper car the size of a broom closet.  What a ball.  Saw so many friends from our road tours and a lot of great music from talented unsigned blues bands.  Ready to go back to work and in the van   Jim Liban took the city by storm winning the "Best Harp" award ...

And the results are in!

  • 2012 Touring Blues Band of the Year: Reverend Richard Raven & The Chain Smokin' Altar Boys
  • 2012 Touring Blues Band Show of the Year: Mac Arnold and Plate Full O' Blues at the Southwest Florida Blues Festival.
