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.

Our last CD "Shake Your Boogie" is still listed on CDBaby.com as a top ten seller for Chicago Style Blues.  You can also find us at Amazon.com and a locally in Miwaukee Metro at The Exclusive Company, in Greenfield,WI.

We're starting our way back home tomorrow after playing the Time Out Pub in Rockland Maine tonight at 7pm.  Good tour so far. Great driving thru some cool old three and four hundred year old towns.  They think we talk funny!! Imagine that LOL.

Check the schedule for remaining shows.  Otherwise we'll be home to play 5the Italian Community Center, in Milwaukee on Tuesday 9/2/12 with Benny Rickun on harp.

Time for another great Sunday afternoon of blues at Kochanski's Concertina Beer Hall, 1920 s. 37th ave, Milwaukee, WI tomorrow 8/19/12 with The Blind Giant of Bourbon St, Brian Lee and his great band.  We'll be opening on the front stage and Brian will be holding court on the back stage.  $15 cover helps Brian cover some of the massive medical bills he's incurred with his recent surgeries...
