In case you haven't heard yet, our friends Cole Train played a great set last Saturday, and secured a spot in the Finals of the Battle of the Bands at the Village Tavern - our congratulations to them!! This will take place on the evening of Saturday, April 11th, so make your plans to come out and cheer for them then.
We had a great jam last Tuesday night, and will of course do it again next Tuesday night as well, at A Dough Re Mi. Dan Wright, Dave Jones, and Greg Levkus continue to do a great job of having everything set up, and keeping the jam running smoothly, often with the help of Stuart Johnson who sings and sets up the sound. Repairs had been done to the sound system and that, along with just one guitar amp, contributed to a cleaner, crisper sound last week.
Several members of the Blues Club will be heading to Jacksonville, FL this weekend to hear Tommy Thunderfoot play at the Springing the Blues festival there -- lots of fun in the sun, or maybe in the rain, but fun nevertheless!
If you're in town this weekend, you could head for Whaleys on Edisto Beach to see Jeff Norwood play with Greg Levkus and Mark Schleiss, 9 pm on Saturday night. Or if you want to stay closer to home, you could try the Explorers Club at the Village Tavern -- they're not a blues band, but they're quite good. If you like the Beach Boys, you're sure to like the Explorers Club.
And see you next Tuesday night for the jam!
