MARCH 2018

Posted by & filed under News.

On March 3rd, 2018 we had our 9th annual Boogie-Woogie/Blues Stomp at the Palladium Theatre here in St. Pete.  The concert featured Matthew Ball (Detroit), Chase Garrett (St. Louis), Liz Pennock & Dr. Blues, and Wendy DeWitt with Kirk Harwood on drums (San Francisco)    It was a blast!

Another blast was playing at Ricky Nye’s 18th Blues & Boogie Piano Summit in Newport, Kentucky on Nov. 3 & 4, 2017.  Other players included Ricky Nye & Bekah Williams (Cincy), Martjin Schok & Greta Holtrop (Netherlands), and Wendy DeWitt & Kirk Harwood (San Francisco).

Although our song Quirky Boogie didn’t win “2017 Coolest Blues Song of the Year” (Big City Blues Magazine), it did make the finals & top third of 36 songs.  Thanks again for all your votes!
