Greetings from sunny St. Pete, Florida!  Happy to say live music is coming back more since the pandemic is easing, and we’re now working on booking our Summer Tour up north.  We’re excited about playing at the Lebanon Blues Festival in Ohio for the first time on August 6th.  Watch our website for more dates so you don’t miss a thing.  If you have live music at your restaurant, club or festival, please email us for booking info and to become a part of our tour.

On March 19th, 2022 we played our 12th Boogie Woogie/Blues Piano Stomp at the Palladium Theater in St. Pete.  It was a joy to be back since Covid stopped it in 2021.  This year’s Stomp featured Josh Christina, Ethan Leinwand and Daryl Davis, who were all outstanding!  We also had a packed crowd at the Pesky Pelican gig the night before with all three piano players sitting in.  Thanks to the performers and all who came!

Congrats and thanks to the Frequent Fans of 2021:  #1. Wayne K., who attended 20 shows!  And the following, who attended at least 10 shows each:  #2. Jerri E.  #3. Priscilla H.  #4. Ellen S.  #5 Midge P.  #6. Linda M.  #7. Harvey L.  #8. Sue L.  Ask for a free card at any show.

We have a new baby at our house!  Actually, it’s almost 100 years old…. a 1926 Ricca & Son (New York) acoustic miniature upright piano that Liz found on FB & fell in love with.  Only 66 keys, mahogany, & sounds great- simply adorable!  She still loves her 1932 baby grand, and now they complement each other.

By the way, there are decent pianos for cheap or free all over- check your paper or Facebook Marketplace.  If needed, you can google piano movers & tuners nearby- it’s easy to adopt a piano!

Visit our EVENTS page for upcoming gigs in Florida & elsewhere, & sign up for our monthly email list if you like.  We’d love to see you in the crowd!

RIP Cousin Bryan Clark, 69, who helped us book our 1st gig ever with Diamond Teeth Mary, and Rev. Helen Lewis, age 99, a remarkable, supportive & inspirational Aunt.

Thanks for listening,

Dr. Blues
