Our Blues Club members and friends are well represented among this year’s nominees for the City Paper Music Awards. Log on to www.Charlestoncitypaper.com and vote for: The Louie D Project (also Louie D and Paul Walls individually), Momma & The Redemption, Sarah Cole & The Hawkes, Johnny Mac and the Booty Ranch, Skye Paige & The Original Recipe, Fowler’s Mustache, Old You, Hey Rocco, Mac Leaphart, Shovels & Rope…, Old friends Young MI, Elise Testone and Jon Hagar are also nominated. Congrats to all.
BUT, can somebody tell me how not one of our guitarists or bassists received a nod??? That is nuts! No disrespect to anyone who is nominated but many of our guitarists and bassists are truly world class talents and deserve recognition.
Also, why is Momma & The Redemption in the Funk/Soul category and not in the Blues category? Oops!
That being said, get out and see for yourself!
