Baker’s Dozen of Blues: January 16 & 23, 2017




We are thrilled to have our favorite Italian Cowboy Fabrizio Poggi at the top slot for the next two weeks. His work on the new release The Amazing Texas Voices is a 2016 Jimi Award winner, and has been received with great applause around the world.

Why two weeks,? Well, we be on the road that’s why.
First stop on our Blues Tour is the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise – there ain’t nothing like it folks. It is THE event for Blues fans around the world. Do it even if it means stiffing those kids outta some cash at the end of the life span, well worth it.

Then we are off to Memphis for the International Blues Challenge. It’s a blast where we see over 250 bands from around the world ‘compete’ for tour dates, studio time and all sorts of good stuff. Plus it’s as close to a ‘trade show’ that the blues has.

We will feature some Fresh Bytes in our second hour of the Baker’s Dozen of Blues show, new stuff that’s well worth the listen. We also have a new Three Peat featuring lots of Mojo Workin’, and some other tasty blues tunes that have been covered and we feature them for you.

As I said we will be gone so this post will stay up for two weeks, we will update whe we get back to the states and be sure to check out our Blues411 Facebook page for updates and photos from the IBC when we get back – shots from the venues and a grand post that appears after the lights go out at around 2-3 am every day.

This just in:
Michalis Limnios of Blues.GR has interviewed me about Blues411 and is well worth the read. Not just for my info and opinions, but as an overall super site to be aware of for blues news and info.
