We hope all our blues club friends have gotten out to see some blues bash shows during this past week. There's been so much going on -- old favorites and new bands to check out, all over town. One of the best events was on Saturday afternoon, the Blues Club jam/ Blues Bash version with Tommy Thunderfoot at Home Team/West Ashley. Check out the article about it in the Charleston City Paper this week, written by Ballard Lesemann. Thanks to Tommy for hosting, and thanks also for all the kind words about our club and the players who make our jams so awesome! We thank Greg Levkus as always for being the core drummer, and Jerry Ray for starting it off on bass. There were too many fine players throughout the day to mention them all here -- but thanks to you all!!
The bash continues on, so check the schedule at www.bluesbash.com, and get out there. We also continue with our Wednesday night club jams at Home Team/WA, and Dan Wright and the rest of the gang are back from Memphis, so don't miss that, for sure.
It's time to pay your dues for 2011 if you haven't already done so. Just come out to a jam, and give us $10 for an individual, $25 for a band or family, or $100 for a corporate membership. Or you can mail dues to The Lowcountry Blues Club, P.O. Box 814, Isle of Palms, SC 29451.
