We’re gearing up for the 7th Annual Boogie Woogie/Blues Piano Stomp in St. Pete March 5th. Bob Seeley & Daryl Davis return by popular demand, plus Luca Sestak from Germany. See our SHOWS Page for ticket info.
Jan. 6, 2016 we welcomed grandbaby #3, Greyson Cash! Congrats to Kristen & Drew, and to Greyson’s siblings Jackson & Julie, who are now three years old.
20 years ago in January, we drove our motorhome through ice & snow to make the big move from Ohio to Florida and finally bought a home here 11 months later in Nov., 1996. Our first Florida show that year was at Skipper’s Smokehouse in Tampa, opening for Saffire: The Uppity Blues Women, where it was a freezing 28 degrees-brrrr!
That June we played Chicago Blues Festival with Diamond Teeth Mary, then released our best-selling CD Six Fingers Boogie & toured the Midwest for nine weeks in the RV. What a year!
30 years ago in 1986, we founded our independent label Upright Records & now have six releases plus a new one in the works.
40 years ago in 1976, Liz officially became a professional musician with her first paid gig.
So in 2016, to thank you & to celebrate our first recording Bluesy Atmosphere in 1986 (originally on LPs, then cassettes & now on CDs), for every $10 you spend on our merch at gigs or from our website, you’ll get 1 FREE CD OF THIS FIRST ALBUM. (If you already have it, pass it on to a friend.)
Subscribe/buy the Feb./March Big City Blues Magazine! It’s a piano issue, featuring many of our friends, plus Liz’s 1st article/byline!
