And it has been an amazing year!
And it has been amazing thanks to you!
So, thank you for making this club a reality, and thank you for supporting it every week for the past year.
And we're going to celebrate our turning one on Friday, August 29th with a very special anniversary blues jam at A Dough Re Mi. Like all of our jams, the thing is scheduled to start at 8PM. Unlike our Tuesday night jams, there is a cover charge, but not for Lowcountry Blues Club members. Members get in free to this jam.
In addition to the great talent that is the Lowcountry Blues Club jam band, we have a few guests stopping on the anniversary jam to celebrate with us. Hitman from Savannah, and Jeff Norwood from the upstate. Both of these guys are dynamic blues musicians have taken part in jams in the past, and we're glad to have them back again.
We've only done a handful of Friday night jams in the past and they've always turned out to be monsters. I have reason to doubt that this one won't be one to tell the grandkids about.
And if you haven't been to one of our jams, what's stopping you. Every Tuesday night, we throw it down at A Dough Re Mi and remind this town what live music is all about. There is no doubt in my mind that we have the best musicians in this town who stop by and play with us. And if you are a musician, you should too.
Because we're hitting the anniversary mark, we have some official business to take care of. On Tuesday, August 26th, we're holding a business meeting at 8PM at A Dough Re Mi. At this meeting we have official club business and the meeting will only be open to club members. In particular, we need to elect officers for the upcoming year. We need to vote in a President, a Treasurer, and a Secretary. In addition, we need to elect a governing board. So make certain you stop by to cast your vote and have your voice be heard.
On a final note, we are going to be changing how our mailing list is going to be handled. We've grown so large that it isn't cost effective to keep our current provider, and it is getting difficult to send out the weekly newsletter because of the size of the list. Unfortunately, we don't have a good way to just move everyone over with the new mailing list provider. So if you want to keep receiving the club emails, visit the website below and enter your email address in the blue box on the right hand side of the page. Or just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know that you want to keep receiving these emails.
Here's the page for the new email signup: http://lowcountrybluesclub.
