Hi Blues Club friends --
We had a great jam on Tuesday night at A Dough Re Mi, and a good crowd. This coming Tuesday night will be a little different, as Dan Wright will be busy elsewhere, so the host will be someone else -- you'll have to show up to find out who that will be! Our jam on Tuesday the 24th will also be a bit different from the usual plan. Our own Hollywood Rob Lowe will do a short show with his new band Kings of Thieves, starting early, possibly 7:45 -- So get there early to get a sneak peek at this very new band!
If you're looking for something to do this weekend, Smoky Weiner and the Hot Links (including Greg Levkus on drums) will be playing at A Dough Re Mi, and they're always fun. . .
I also want to let you know about a relatively new venue for music: Awendaw Green. They've started a free music gathering on Wednesday nights, no cover, all kinds of music, that starts around 6:30 and goes on till late, with several bands playing each time. They also have events on Monday nights with more established artists, for a $5 cover. This coming Monday the 16th features the Bowmans and Danielle Howle. You can get all the details at awendawgreen.com -- I hope that some of our favorite local blues bands may choose to partipate in the future. . .
Our friend Gary Erwin has lots and lots of blues-related events scheduled for this spring. If you haven't done so already, I highly recommend that you sign up for his email newsletter at shrimpcityslim.com. Or you can go to myspace.com/bluesinthecarolinas for info as well. . .
On March 21st, Wyatt Garey's band Stonehouse will compete in the Battle of the Bands at Village Tavern, so come out and cheer them on! And Cole Train won their battle last weekend, and will compete in the semi-finals at the Village Tavern on the 28th, so don't miss that either!
Keep in mind that March 27th is a night you won't want to stay home: Tommy Thunderfoot's band will be in Summerville, Dan Wright's band will be at A Dough Re Mi, and Rob Lowe's band will be at the Oasis!!!
And then, there's a road trip opportunity to go to the Springing the Blues festival in Jacksonville, FL, to see Tommy Thunderfoot and lots more great bands, April 3-5. So much music!
