Greetings blues club friends -
Last night's blues club jam was another winner - so many friends, so much great music! Starting off the evening were Dan Wright, jam-master, Jojo Wall on bass, Greg Levkus on drums, and Bill Nance on the Hammond, and they started the party right! Lots of our favorite regular players were there to jam, too, along with some new ones, and we thank you all for coming. We've been lucky enough to attract some good horn players lately, including the super-cool Louie D on sax. And we've got a new singer, Melissa, who fits right in. The crowd even persuaded Charlie Kendall to sing a song - a special treat.
And of course, we'll be doing it again next Wednesday too, so put it on your calendar!
Here are a few ideas for this weekend:
Friday night, you can catch The Louie D Project for soul and funk at Bambu, or Whisky 'n' Ramblin for swamp-blues at the Blind Tiger. Also, Home Team/Sl has The Damon Fowler Group featuring songs from their new cd "Sugar Shack", at 10.
Then on Saturday, Whiskey 'n' Ramblin are at The Griffon, and Johnny Mac and the BootyRanch are at Wild Wing in Mt Pleasant at 10.
Check your favorite local paper for all the shows happening this weekend, and join the facebook site "Charleston Live Music" for highlights...
June's featured artists are Howlin' Wolf (1910), and Scott Holt (1966), both born in June.
