Hey #bluesbabies! The last few months have been unprecedented in the natural disaster department! Most of us know someone personally affected by them! It's inspirational to see people coming together to do what they can,to help their neighbors,friends,& strangers alike,during this time of great need !
Blues musicians are among those affected,& have lost not only their homes,but their instruments,equipment for their livelihood,& often the venues they performed in.
Come! Join us! This Sunday,October 22nd,from 2pm-6pm for "Band Together", an incredible afternoon/evening of music,fun,food,raffle prizes,& silent auction at The Spare Room! It's all to benefit blues musicians affected by the natural disasters,through shelter Box,& Blues Music Disaster Fund.
Enjoy a day away from it all,while making a difference for musicians in need! Tickets available at Music Milleium,The Spare Room,& AT THE DOOR !! Don't miss seeing some of Portland's finest artists, performing all in one show! All details on the poster below !
Can't wait to see you! ;o)
Hey #bluesbabies! Sure hope you're doin' well! Americana Fest & Awards Show 2017,was AWESOME ! This was my second time attending,& my FOURTH(yay!),visit toN ashville! It truly lives up to it's title of, "Music City USA", to the max,during Americana Fest!
This time around was the best to date,as FINALLY,Bob McGilpin,& I got our first chance to work together in the studio,LIVE! We had a blast! His studio is so fun,with the studio puppies,vintage instruments,memorabilia,& awesome photos of his career; as an artist,songwriter,producer,& philanthropist! Photo's & videos here,will give you an idea of how inspirational,& relaxing,it was/is !
Best part of all? We got another of my songs,"in the can" ! Bob's outstanding multi-instrumentalist skills on full display on this track as he handles the guitar,mandolin,cajone,shaker,& his own "Blind Lemon Pledge Boys" BGV'S(background vocals),to give the tune a real "Oh Brother Where Art Thou" vibe! Yeah,I know,too many quotation marks! He he he!
So now it's just a few adjustments,& I'll have some new music for you! Final mix down,& mastering being expertly completed here in the Great NW,by the "Almighty Poo-Bah Of Sound" himself,Kevin Nettleingham,of www.nettleinghamaudio.com ! Can't wait to share it with y'all! Be well! ;o)
