A Baker’s Dozen of Blues: August 8, 2016



Welcome to another busy week at Blues411. Even with us being home we have a slew of things to get done. Been working hard with The Roasting Room to get blues talent into our area, so if you are touring the Carolinas or around here be sure to hit them up cos they would be happy to have ya play there.

Black Coffee Radio Hour w LogoWith our radio station success we are shuffling some shows around to get better representation in various time zones to insure best exposure for them. The Black Coffee Radio Hour with Sara French will now debut on Thursday’s at 7pm. Sarah is very busy doing publicist work for Canadian bands, and attending festivals so giving her a few extra days is a great help to her and by debuting in Thursdays she has the day to herself. All other show times are the same for the show.

Speaking of time, it is about time we say Tweed Funk is the #1 release this week. Congrats to JD, Smokey and the ban for another super release, hope y’all been diggin’ their spins here, and be sure to see them when they come to your town.

Our Amuse Bouche is partly inspired by Big Harp George, who is tracking on our Baker’s Dozen chart. We decided to look at some blues artists with the name or nickname of BIG, hope ya enjoy.

This weekend in Port Royal, SC the Homemade Jamz Band will be playing a free concert. Excited to see the Perry family once again and know that we will have some fotos from their show.

Our Music City Blues Kitchen features a sit and spin with the Allen-Lamun Band. They debut today, Monday at noon, right before The Baker’s Dozen. Tune in and learn how they, wound up in Nashville, and where their sound emanated from. They are fresh off a virgin appearance at Gary Anton’s Bradfordville Blues Club this past Saturday.

TaylorMadeBB-300X300A quick shout out to Mick Kolassa as he has a new release out ‘Taylor Made Blues’, and all proceeds go to the HART Fund and Generation Blues of the Blues Foundation. Mick has once again done much good by donating all monies to these two fine charities and also by signing up again as a Tier 1 Supporter of Blues411. So buy this release and do a world of good.
