This week:
from Chrissie O'Dell And One Hot Mess
from Erin Harpe And The Delta Swingers
sit on

Continuing our International Blues Challenge (IBC) preview, Chrissie O'Dell And One Hot Mess will be representing the Long Island Blues Society. Her band smokes and Chrissie's vocals are something you want to hear. Chrissie will sit and talk about their journey to Memphis.

Then one of her competitors in the band category, Erin Harpe from Erin Harpe And The Delta Swingers representing the Boston Blues Society will sit with me and talk about how she has changed her musical style for this band and how she is dealing with the quick success they have garnered.

With my schedule this week, posting here will be slim.

I will be working today and then Tuesday - Thursday, leaving at around 3:30pm to head to Beale. Probably be down there until 11 - 11:30 each of those nights. Friday, I took the day and will be on Beale until the cows come home...but something special might come out of Friday...fingers crossed.

Saturday will be on Beale and at the Orpheum Theater all day for the finals.

BUT...I hope you follow Robert "Nighthawk Tooms, Casey Reagen and myself as we report from the IBC all week at AMERICAN BLUES NEWS

We will all be following the progress of as many bands as possible in words and pictures...check it out!

6 Of Your Sparks

  1. Am caught up in a maelstrom, my friend, but I will try my hardest to be in the chat room tonight.

  2. Jay Says:
  3. I'll be there while waiting for the Ice Storm of Death to start.

  4. SONGBIRD: uh huh....LOL

    JAY: Drive to Memphis and stay with storm coming here (only rain)

  5. Coco Says:
  6. Storm doesn't hit here until Wednesday ... that's 3 Wednesdays in a row with 30+ cm of snow. Perhaps it's Fate's payback for my amusement at your snowfall woes? (snicker)

    I haven't been able to find your interview with Matt Andersen yet, Vinny. Could you please send me a link?

    Have a wonderful week absorbing as much blues music as you can handle. HUGS!

  7. Travis Cody Says:
  8. Enjoy the music. I'm looking forward to the full report.

  9. COCO: Already causing some havoc with people getting here form what I understand

    TRAVIS: Come read at American Blues News
