Winters Blues

By Earl Matthews

Hello, friends, the Holidays are here and I’m sure we could all use some good cheer. I recommend you take yourself out for a nice night of music, here are my suggestions for you blues lovers out there.

Kickoff your month with a great night at the Knights Ferry Saloon with My band the Poorhouse Millionaires and Rob Hill Band. It will be a night of root music and good friends. On the 2nd I will be over at the Cow Track Lounge in Oakdale with my other act the Cryin’ Shame.

If you are into a little drive over to Visalia you can check out Robert Cray at the Fox on the 3rd. On the 6th and the 20th at Ralston’s Goat in a night of Comedy and music called Poorhouse Millionaires and Friends. The show starts at 8 and is free to all.  Ray Vazira and I will be over at Bauhaus on the evening of the 12th and again on 26th. On the 9th, you have some options. Tracy folks can come see me with the Poorhouse Millionaires at Sandwich Cousens. In Sacramento, Dennis Jones will be over at the Torch Club or you can stay close to home and catch John Clifton Band at the Barkin Dog.

Rockin right along to the 15th you can catch Coco Montoya at one of my favorite venues the Center for the Arts in Grass Valley. On the 16th is a big event at the Portal called Blue Christmas. I will be there with the Cryin Shame along with the Catfish Daniel Band. All Portal shows are a benefit for Hope Haven West. Then on the 17th, you can see Rick Estrin and the Nightcats at the Powerhouse in Folsom.

One more show to mention and then it’s all a wrap, another year in the books. On the 22nd Poorhouse Millionaires are back at the 108 Sports Lounge in RIverbank. It’s a great room, if you haven’t been you should come check it out. Happy Holidays to you all.
