Boo, it’s October! 👻
Wow, when did summer end? Somehow we missed it! Summer 2022 sure was a very busy one, and I’m still amazed when I look back on the last few months. Jim and I have been all the way out to Wisconsin and Minnesota, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New York, all over New England, down to Maryland & Virginia, all the way out to west Texas, and everywhere in between! It’s been a whirlwind, especially compared to the last few years, and we’re very thankful to be able to be on the road again, and to see so many of you out there!
Now we’re back in New England for a while, and it’s Fall! My favorite season – there’s a crispness in the air, the leaves are changing, and the views out the van window are amazing. If you’re in New England, check out our upcoming schedule below – we’ve got some great shows coming up and we’d love to see you! (Catch us while you can, as we’ll be taking a little time off coming up, to get ready for the International Blues Challenge at the end of January!)
FUNDRAISER – send the CBD to the IBC!
Speaking of Memphis, this year we won the Granite State Blues Challenge in the Solo/Duo category, and we’ll be headed to Memphis in January for the International Blues Challenge! We’re excited, but there are considerable costs involved (like gas & tolls, lodging, etc.), so we’re asking for a little help from our friends. If you’d like to make a donation (any amount is appreciated!), check our our new GoFundMe, and THANKS!
Thank you so much if you already contributed, we’re already at almost 50% of our goal!!
VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!
I was nominated for “Blues Artist of the Year” in the New England Music Awards, and voting ends soon. If you already voted, THANKS! If not, please take a moment to vote! It’s super easy, just:
- Scroll down to the Blues Artist of the Year, I’m the second one down.

Thank you so much, and I hope to see you soon!! Upcoming shows are listed below...
PS. Here’s something fun – a caricature of me, along with a few others from the Boston music scene, by artist Rich Sullivan!
