BluesView February 2017

Hello everyone, winter is in full strength and as wet as she pleases this year and I can think of no better way to warm up on a cold night then to go out to a show.

Kicking the month off, the Poorhouse Millionaires Duo will be at the Bourbon Barrel in Sonora for some songs and fun. On the 4th Rob Hill Band will be at Knights Ferry Saloon, one of my favorite places to enjoy music. Rob calls his music Jazzy Blues, I think it perfectly describes his sound. His band’s sound is built on a rock solid rhythm section with 3 talented lead players and Rob’s impassioned singing style. You really can’t go wrong.

On the 10th Terrie Londee in at Vintage Lounge in Turlock with her group the B-4 Dawn Band. They play Funk, Soul, R&B and Classic Rock. Terrie has a beautiful voice and a vivacious spirit that is sure to keep you smiling all night long.

Let’s all make a note of the annual Johnny Cash Birthday Bash at the Prospect Theater. This event always slays the crowd, bringing together a whole bunch of different singers and musicians from our local music family to celebrate the legacy of Johnny Cash and raise money for the Theater.


Two days later at the Gallo Center 10 time Grammy Award winner Bonnie Raitt will perform. She is listed on both the top 100 singers and top 100 guitar players of all time by Rolling Stone. She mixes Blues, Rock, Folk and Country sounds together to great effect. I have been a fan most of my life. What an amazing human being; I hope I get to go.

Finishing things off are a couple of Poorhouse Millionaires shows, a full band show at the Knights Ferry Saloon on the 25th and on the 26th the Duo will be doing acoustic breakfast at Deva Cafe.

As always you can jam away your blues every Thursday at the Garlic Brothers in Stockton with Jeramy Norris and the Dangerous Mood. Or in Modesto with David Dow at the Barking Dog. Both Jams are free and all ages.

Have a great month and I hope to see you out at a show!
