Baker’s Dozen of Blues: January 2, 2017




Welcome to 2017, let’s hope this new year brings positive vibrations to everyone and some wolking together for the betterment of all.

Our first #1 CD of the year belongs to Lurrie Bell. His CD is a must for those who say they love the blues and for those who think that the blues is old and out of touch – it will change your mind.

We have tons of new songs on the chart this week as we pick up the pace from the end of last year, and we have 2 new additions to the chart. Tom Dikon & The Jukes Revival and John Blues Boyd. Check them out and see what ya think.

Out Amuse Bouche features a new compilation CD from The Blues Foundation & KBA recipient Frank Rozak. It features music from the 2016 IBC and it serves as an enticement and reminder to get yourself in line to attend this years event. Check for details.

We have a new Guest Curator, Jordan Ross. Jordan is from The Roasting Room here is Bluffton, SC and it is a great venue for live music and great bourbon – a pretty good combination. The Roasting Room has partnered with Blues411 to bring blues bands to this part of SC and have a heavy schedule of bands performing in the early part of the year ahead. Check them out and get in touch with them as we’d be glad to have ya down this way. Jordan looks at who has performed here as well as who is lined up for the future. Plus he gives us a little background about when the blues overtook him.
