We have another great weekend of shows lined up around the area:
Kicking things off first on Thursday night will be TWS & Friends at Wing Time in North Charleston. You all Tim Shaw as a Lowcountry Blues Club regular guitar player and occasional singer. My sources tell me that TWS & Friends stole the show at the Trident United Way Battle Of Bands, and Tim steals the show at our jams as well. So you should stop by and check them out doing their mix of blues rock, country rock, and classic rock.
Then, Steve & The Stilettos will be taking the stage at The Mill Friday night, starting around 9:30 PM. Stop by and see these veteran blues musicians do their thing. What's more, their driving rhythm section is none other than our Greg and Mark on drums and bass. That alone is worth seeing on any night. Add Steve on vocal and guitar and Joel on harmonica and you have a blues powerhouse.
Also on Friday, Tommy Thunderfoot & The Accelerators travel up to Sumter to deliver the blues to our friends in the midstate. This time, The Accelerators include Tanner on drums and JoJo on bass. Stone Cold Sarah Cool will also be there, adding her blues diva stylings to the rockin' blues mix. The shows at Legacies in Sumter are becoming legendary in their own right.
Then on Saturday, Tommy and gang are sticking around Sumter and playing at Pizza Lane as part of a benefit show. Our friend Jeff Norwood is also playing there on Saturday. You know when you get Tommy and Jeff together, those boys just gotta throw down and deliver a good show.
Speaking of people named Jeff, our friend Jeff Liberty will be playing on Saturday at Whaley's on Edisto Island. If your down that way, stop in and see him do his thing. He's got a great band and Jeff always delivers to the crowd like it was a stadium full of people. Greasy, gritty blues - just the way we like it.
Getting around to Tuesday, we have the weekly Lowcountry Blues Club jam at A Dough Re Mi. If you haven't been by lately, you should stop in and see why this one of the best nights of music in the state!
And on Wednesday, don't forget that our friend Larry McCray will be a the Pour House.
I hope I haven't forgotten anyone, but this weekend is shaping up as another great weekend of blues music in the region.
