A big week this week as we are off to the Daytona Blues Festival to enjoy the music, friends and be the MC for the three days of love, peace & blues music.
A sterling line up and an expected yuuuge crowd will welcome the fest back after Hurricane Mathew cancelled us out last year. Starting on Friday with Ladies Play The Blues, Saturday has been declared a celebration of 50 years of the Summer of Love (appropriate attire recommended) and Sunday being a Come As You Are frolic. So stay tuned to Blues411 on Facebook for updates and fun stuff all weekend.
This week the Andy T Band featuring Nick Nixon, Alabama Mike & Anson Funderberg sit on top of the chart. Well actually they will sit on top for two weeks as we will be busy at the aforementioned Daytona Blues Festival so congrats two times over!
A super release which I believe will move them to the next level of recognition in the Blues community. It feature Alabama Mike & Nick Nixon on vocals, and the usual group of heady talented players in the band.
Check them out and you will see why these cats are poised to get big returns from the Double Strike album.
Our Amuse Bouche segment will feature Fresh Bytes – new music. We get so very much new music at our Blues411 Internet Radio Headquarters that we like to feature them when we can on our chart. But you can also catch them in their own show called, strangely enough, Fresh Bytes.
See graphic for details.
