OMG, OMG, OMG…
That’s just about sums up our fantastic return to the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise. For folks who have never been on it, we cannot fully explain what it means to be on one. There were a good number of virgins this trip and they now know what we were talking about. Hip to the trip and now will understand when we have said the the return offenders get more excited than the virgins do . . .
Thank you Roger Nabor and the Legendary Krewe for throwing the best party on the planet, we were too long away, but it was like we never left.
We had a Fender acoustic guitar autographed by most of the artists on the cruise and will be auctioning it off in Memphis, on the Friday of the Blues Music Award week at the Hard Rock Cafe.
We also sold $400 worth of Cooking With HART cookbooks to the ever supportive cruisers. Wish we would have bought more books we would have sold them out also. You can also order direct from the Blues Foundation via this link, Cooking With HART
Being away for a week, we left ya in good hands as the chart remained the same as did our tribute to some of the artists who were n the cruise. So this week we bring it to ya fresh and new.
Our #1 this week happened to be on the boat, The California Honeydrops, who thrilled the crowd with their high energy music and late night music jams. Be sure to see these young cats when they are near ya – you won’t regret it.
New to our Baker’s Dozen chart this week are two super artists we saw on the boat, Mighty Mike Schermer (who plays with Marcia Ball) as well as having a fine solo release out right now. Joining him is Fiona Boyes, one of our favorite ladies who has several new guitars, and this release is called ‘Box and Dice’ as is her new cigar box beauty.
With the mention of Fiona we decided that we would do a ‘Women In Blues’ tribute, but for current ladies with newer releases. So enjoy the ladies and their music.
