Baker’s Dozen of Blues: December 12, 2016


Sugar Ray & The Bluetones sit at the pinnacle of the chart this week. What an amazing band, each of these cats can play music like nobody’s bidness and congrats to them as one solid unit of musical masters.

Our Amuse Bouche features Blues411
Tier 1 Supporters. These are the folks, artists, festivals etc., that support us and help uys keep the lights on here. SO give a listen, buy their CD’s, see them live or go to the festivals. It all helps everyone cos it’s only thru supporting each other do we keep this blues train running.

Yes it is that time of the year for awards. The Grammy nominations have been announced and congrats to all our friends who got one. The BMA’s are shortly going to be announced, and best of all the 2016 Blues411 Jimi Awards will appear this Wednesday!
What started as a tip of the hat to the artists who actually sent me CD’s in the short very first year, has blossomed into a much anticipated and much desired part of the award season. We share the love around to as many artists as we can and have fun with it too, hope ya check it out at the web site and all over Facebook, Twitter and radio station.

We at Blues411, never missing an opportunity to break out cool blues tunes, are running our annual Holiday Blues Extravaganza please check Facebook or the web site for times of shows, it runs every day thru the end of the month and features some very cool tunes for the season.

Be sure to check out our new show Hip Shakin’ Mamas with Dr. Jane. No need to say what it is about cos if ya can’t figure it out then, Jack yer dead. The show has been well received in it’s first week and looks to be a long lasting addition to our slate of carefully curated and DJ shows.
