BluesView November 2016

by Big Earl
Hello everyone! It’s turkey tine and as always I am ready. Just had my knives sharpened and if anybody tries to get my wings they better be ready for a fight.


Kicking things off this month is the Rob Hill Band on the 4th up in Knight’s Ferry at the 50’s Roadhouse. It’s the perfect way to start your month off with a bang, great music, good food and a trip to the foothills.

On the 11th there are 3 shows worth mentioning: Turlock at the Vintage Lounge you can catch the B-4 Dawn Band serving up R&B Soul and Funk all night long. At the Barkin’ Dog you can catch Jeremy Norris and the Dangerous Mood playing some rocki’n blues. Ralston’s Goat will play host to yours truly with my man Ray Vazira of the Poorhouse Millionaires, doing our acoustic thing in the bar for your enjoyment.

On Saturday the 12th Jeremy Norris will be over at Nino’s for their monthly customer appreciation party and BBQ at 2:30pm. It’s a great time with no cover and the best free BBQ you ever tasted, just bring a dish to share.

Then on the 15th is one of my all-time favorites Mr. John Mayall will be at the Crest Theater in Sac. I had the pleasure of seeing him years back and I will never forget him as long as I live. He is a legend, pure and simple.

The Little Fuller Band is back at the Black Oak Casino on the 18th. I adore this band. They are talented, fun and well worth the drive. I think it is only a matter of time before these guys are on the major festival circuit. Honestly though, you should go see them.

Latkes and Vodkas is coming early this year on November 19th. This annual event hosted by CBS Modesto is a super fun fundraiser for  youth programs. Big Earl and the Cryin’ Shame are proud to be performing again this year. It’s a dress up event and I feel like that sets this one apart from so many other shows we do. Drinks, dancing, and great food are all on offer, so let’s have a party.

Have a great month and I look forward to seeing you out at a show.
