BluesView: Highlights for June

Big Earl Mattews

Hello everyone and welcome to the busiest month I have seen in a long time. Making out June’s calendar this year has been nuts, over 30 events in the blues arena this month. I won’t be able to tell you about everything so please consult the main calendar for what’s happening and where.

Highlights for June are Blues Box Bayou Band a Knight’s Ferry on the 2nd. John Mayall at the Crest on the 7th. Gary Gervase and Kickstart Blues at Minnie’s in Modesto on Graffiti Night. Poorhouse Millionaires at Dad’s Nostalgic Car Show and Music Fest in Sacramento on the 9th. On the 17th Father’s Day Blues Fest in Volcano, great line up. Rob Hill on the Plaza on the 22nd. On the 23rd is Modesto Blues Fest, see below for more info. Jeramy Norris and the Dangerous Mood at Black Oak on the 28th.

Now I would like to Highlight a couple of big events that I think you are going to want to make it to. On the 7th the legendary John Mayall will be at the Crest Theatre in Sacramento. John is not only an incredible performer and showmen but has played a huge roll in the history of blues. He is one of the people who helped spearhead the blues revival in the 60’s and has been responsible for finding and fostering some of the most talented performers in the modern era including none other than Eric Clapton himself. If you are a blues fan you owe it to yourself to get out and see this man while you still can, you won’t regret it.

We absolutely have to talk about the return of the Modesto Blues Fest on June 23rd at Seasons in Modesto. JB has decided that its time for the blues to shine on in Modesto once again and we are all better for it. This years lineup features Bluesbox Bayou Band from Modesto, They play a mix of New Orleans style blues and Zydeco that will move your feet. Bill Clifton’s Chicken and Whiskey Band. Bill is a former member of MoFo Party band and a Valley favorite. Deja Blues from Fresno, great guys who have been a staple of the music scene for a long time and know how to get down right. Finally we have the Voodoo Killers who mix Blues and Hard Rock into a fiery show that you can’t ignore. It’s going to be such a fun day.

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