BluesView – Fall Favorites

By “Big” Earl Matthews

Hello everybody, we are entering into my favorite time of year – Fall. The weather is nice and my birthday is just around the corner so let’s all start celebrating it early with some great music.

On September 2nd I will be on the Oakdale Beer train again with the Cryin’ Shame. It’s a real great way to spend an evening, chugging along and dancing to some sweet blues!
Sunday the 3rd you might want to think about heading up to Moke Hill at the Hotel Leger for an afternoon of blues with Jeramy Norris and the Dangerous Mood. These guys are real pros and know how to take the party to the people. Also on the 3rd Mark Hummel’s Golden State Lone Star Review are taking the stage at the Torch Club in Sacramento. Mark has assembled a group of heavy hitters from California and Texas to bring you some real authentic harmonica blues. On the 8th Brad Wilson will be at Black Oak Casino. Brad is a rock blues performer who plays a shredding style of guitar, should be a real fun night.

Terrie Londee will be back at Yosemite Lanes 300 Club on Sept 9. Terrie is a fantastic vocalist with a great band and they serve up a danceable mix of Blues, Funk, Classic Rock and anything else that feels good. Also on the 9th, Ann Popovic will be at Moe’s Alley. LA based Serbian born Ana is a world class guitar player who has earned here stripes on stages globally. This is an amazing opportunity to see this multi award winning guitar player in an intimate setting.

I have some big news for you all, starting on the Wednesday 13th I am going to be producing a weekly show again at the newly opened Copper Rhino 2 on Oakdale Rd. I will be kicking off the first show with my Band the Poorhouse Millionaires and our friend Christian Boyatt. My lady Felicia will be doing a little comedy and hosting the show. It’s $5 to get in and it is a bar so it’s 21 and over. I plan on featuring some out-of-town bands and a lot of local acts too. I’m still booking the rest of the month, but, it will all be out on the web and on the ModestoView calendar. Thanks in advance for your support.

At the Poor House Bistro on the 17th is Lil Easy Backyard Party. This time featuring Mighty Mike Schermer; Guitar Get Down with Junior Watson, Little Charlie Baty and Kid Andersen and many more. Check it out.

If you are going to be in the Santa Cruz area I will be back at the Catalyst with the Poorhouse Millionaires on the 30th, always a good time.
Don’t forget about the jams people, Thursdays at the Barking Dog in Modesto and at the Garlic Brothers in Stockton. It’s a great place for fans and for players alike to come out and spend some quality time.
