LBC news and shows

Friday the 16th is the Lowcountry Blues Club All Star Jam at Halligan's which is on Savannah Highway just south of 526 on the right, near Food Lion. with Highway 17, The Fabulous Porch Dogs, Blackwater Stills, and Smoky Weiner and some of the Hot Links. We're one link short of a pack, make of that what you will. Saturday night Shrimp City Slim and his really good band will play old school blues at Fiery Ron's on Sullivan's Island. On Tuesday The Hawkes, whose name derives from the late great violinist Hawke Morfii, play on Tuesday at the West Ashley Hometeam BBQ. They play a more Americana style but old Hawke and the rest of 'em play some blues when they want to. Hawke himself was an old fixture of the jams we used to have at the old Cumberland's in the 90's. If you haven't heard yet, Hometeam BBQ West Ashley will be our new home as of Wednesday May 5th! The jam is moving to Wednesday nights and we'll be in this great venue with a top notch sound system and stage. I hope to see all of you folks out there to support our club especially during these early "formative" weeks. I didn't want to use the term "break-in"! Anyway I hope to see people who haven't been in a while or ever! Let's all talk it up, that's how we do it! Tell your favorite blues deadbeat they can get up and play at Hometeam and look and sound good on that stage. I'm excited about it! A very off-beat band, Bradley Circus plays there Wednesday the 21st and their connection to the blues is that one of them is blues harp player Lidewidg Veenhuis. I don't think I mis-spelled that but then, how would you know? She is supposed to be a hot blues harp player, and I'm not sure how they mean that. Anyway, I doubt if you'd forget this show if you saw it. SW
