BluesView: 2020

BluesView: 2020

By Earl Matthews

Hello everyone and welcome to 2020. I’m excited for a big start to the new year and am grateful to have ended 2020 with a great show at the Prospect Theatre. Thanks to everyone who came out to see any of the bands I play in over the last decade and thank you all for supporting the blues.

Big news I will be going into the studio to record an album this month with Gravel & Grace with Producer John Clifton of the MoFo Party Band fame. Look for it to be released this spring. I am sure we will be doing a big release party so keep your eyes and ears peeled. Gravel & Grace will be doing a couple of shows this month too, the closest one will be at Louie’s Place over in LaGrange.

I hope you are keeping your eyes peeled for fun local shows this year. I recommend checking out newcomers Western Bound, they play a variety of styles including blues and will be holding court at Bookies, Rivets and Grizzly Rock this month. Check the the calender, for dates and times.

Don’t miss Tiffany Rose & the Outlaw Hearts at Ralston’s Goat for their first show of the year on January 4th. You can check out my friends the Rob Hill Band also at Ralston’s Goat on the 31st. Catch Jeramy Norris performing every Thursday at Garlic Brother in Stockton.

As far as big names go this month you have a few cool options. Blues is a Women featuring Pamala Rose is at the Gallo Center in the 25th. Mark Hummel’s Blues Harmonica Blowout is at the Poorhouse Bistro on the 13th. SF legend Tommy Castro and the Painkillers are doing a 2 night stand at Black Oak Casino on the 9th and 10th. 

I hope this gets you off on the good foot for 2020 friends. Big Love and Hugs to you all.
