Well we just celebrated the start of our 6th year of Blues411. It sure has come a long way, and has gone thru ‘them changes’ over the years. We put up a post, here it is in case ya missed it, in short thanks to everyone in the Blues ‘framily‘ for their support and love.
We also re-imagined our web site for a new fresher look, it has a three photo slider across the top of the page that honors our slogan ‘Where Blues Thrives‘ with various photos depicting what we see as efforts to make the blues thrive.
Our new #1 this week is Texas musician Johnny Riley, congrats on the top slot and for making the as the IBC band entry from the Memphis Blues Society. See ya in January !
One new addition and it’s a strong one, John Ginty, a B-3 and keyboard player who fuses the blues,jazz and urban into a delicious mix of tastiness!
There is nothing as satifying as hearing current artists lay the blues as they hear it and these folks deserve happy birthdays and your support when they come through your town.
