We are on the road again. Just left The “ATL’ after experiencing Too Slim & The Taildraggers at Darwin’s. Was great to see them for the very first time, look for an interview with Slim coming up soon right here. Was also great to see so many friends in Atlanta.
We are currently visiting Indianola, MS and the B.B. King Museum, what a great place. Y’all need to travel from them BMA’s to the home of BB and see what great things they gots for ya.
Speaking of themBMA’s, we are headed there Tuesday for the wrap up of “My Left Knee Farewell Tour”. Oh and the Blues Music Awards too. There’s so much going on this week from Anthony Gomes performing at Purple Haze and giving away a guitar, to Big Llou’s 3rd Annual Blues Hall of Fame Tribute Jam all on Wednesday.
Thursday feature Yellow Dog Records showcase with Fo’Reel & Eden Brent, a major party in a special place, and then the awards themselves, starting at 5:30 and running till, well it says 1:00am on schedule, we shall see. Remember SiriusXM is recording it and will be re-broadcasting it at some point so — but even better is that we will be updating it constantly on our facebook site Blues411 all day & night all week, so you really know where to be.
Friday is so jammed packed that even I will have a hard time getting to see all the stuff, but trust me I’m gonna try.
Our number 1 this week is all about Memphis. Ms. Barbara Blue, is getting her very own brass note on Beale Street -an amazing and very cool award. So she gets the #1 slot this week. Our new debuts are Mary Hott & Mark Telesca, two artists ya gonna want to get with trust me.
