Well, this weekend is the big blues festival in the quaint little town of Camden, SC, and I hope some of you are able to attend -- it will be a great time! For all the info, go to www.bluesbash.com/camden and check out all the upcoming performances.
Then on Sunday there's the American Music Celebration at Freshfields Village at Kiawah from 2-7pm, with Skye Paige and lots more -- and it's all free!! Also on Sunday, there's a show put on by Jesse Judy and his music students from 6-9pm at A Dough Re Mi.
On Tuesday you should come out early to Dough Re Mi for a show with Shrimp City Slim and his buddy Dr. Pickup from Paris, France! They're scheduled to start at 5:30 and there's no cover charge. Come and have a pizza, and enjoy some great music! Then the Lowcountry Blues Club is set to have a meeting at 7:30 at A Dough Re Mi, so you can stay and help us make plans for our club. We want new people to get involved as officers and board members, so we're planning to have a vote then as well. Come and share your ideas and your enthusiasm! And of course the Lowcountry Blues Club jam will start up after that, around 8:30ish. . .
And for next weekend, make your plans to attend Rocktoberfest if at all possible! This event will take place from Oct 9-12, behind the Seewee Outpost, and the number of bands scheduled to play is quite impressive. Blues club members and friends scheduled to play include Stuart Johnson, The Fabulous Porch Dogs, The Dan Wright Trio, Jeff Norwood, Skye Paige, Cole Train, the Wyatt Garey Band, and lots, lots more!! Tickets are $40 for the full weekend ($25 with a valid student i.d.), with day passes also available. It's a benefit for the Charleston County Band Instrument Fund, and free admission is given with the donation of a musical instrument. Go to www.awendawgreen.com for more info.
Have fun, and be safe!
