Hi All -

Last night's blues club jam had a record turnout and some awesome music -- I hope you were there! We are so honored and grateful to the wonderful musicians who come out and share their talents with us each week!!

This weekend there's fine music all over town. The Pour House has a streak of great shows: Friday night is Eric Lindell, Saturday night is Sarah Cole and the Hawkes with Guilt Ridden Troubadour, and Sunday night (after the Tea Fest) is a show with Those Darlins and The Explorers Club. Also on Sat night, Momma and Redemption play some hot blues at Home Team/SI. Check out the Home Team website for some more blues events in the coming week, including a visit by Charlie Sayles at both Home Team locations...
