Terry Quiett Band : : Just My Luck
Since 2006 the Terry Quiett Band has logged 200,000+ miles and played close to three-hundred shows across America's Heartland. From 6th Street in Austin to Beale Street in Memphis, they've mesmerized audiences with their original and contemporary blues-soaked sound. They've also paid their share of dues (and tolls) traveling the Rocky Mountains of Denver, the blue grass of Kentucky, and every state in between, winning fans and expanding their core grassroots audience with each performance.
 
In 2010 they entered the studio and recorded their second album "Just My Luck" with world renowned, Grammy-winning producer Jim Gaines (Stevie Ray Vaughan, Carlos Santana, Steve Miller Band, George Thorogood, Luther Allison, Albert Collins) taking their sound to an entirely new level.

Carlos del Junco & the Blues Mongrels : : Mongrel Mash
To say he plays the harmonica is like saying "Jimi Hendrix plays guitar". Carlos del Junco blows the blues harp through a prism -- suddenly it seems he's holding every color in the musical rainbow right there in his hands. This includes two Gold Medals from the Hohner World Harmonica championship, as well as multiple ational awards in Canada.
 
Simultaeously sophisticated and raw, it blurs the boundaries of blues and jazz (hence the name "The Blues Mongrels"). the emphasis is on blues, but Carlos and his band are not afraid to merrily traipse off in other directions deliverig a seamless fusion of new Orleans second line grooves, swing, Latin, hip hop or ska melodies, to swampy roots rock.

Blues Dragon : : Blues Dragon
This is a six piece hard rockin' blues band with their roots deep in pre-WWII blues and early American Music. However, This album delivers you the blues in a totally new and modern way.

COALITION BATTLES GRAMMYS OVER CATEGORY CUTS
 
NEKESA MUMBI MOODY, AP Music Writer
 
Grammy President and CEO Neil Portnow said changes would be in effect for the 2012 Grammys. He urged dissenters to work with the academy, which would examine the effect of the changes for the 2013 awards.
 
But protesters hope the process could be reversed in time for next year's Grammy ceremony if at least one board member asks the academy to reconsider.
 
"It is not rational nor is it logical to have a discussion to ask people to resign," he said. "I don't think it endears their cause to board members either."
 
After the Academy announced the changes, meetings were held in chapter cities across the country to reach out to members. Portnow said he's willing to meet with members of Sanabria's coalition.
 
"They've done a great job in mobilizing the community to do something. If the community has been mobilized, let's take it to the next step ... a positive direction," he said.
 
Said Sanabria: "You don't stick a sword in somebody's back and then when they're bleeding say, let's come together."
 
"He disrespects us," he said. "He's so out of touch with everything."
 
The Recording Academy's board meeting ends Friday. If it concludes with the changes still in place, Sanabria is vowing boycotts of the Grammys, broadcast partner CBS and sponsors of the show. He said he will also urge people to resign from the academy.
 
"We have to fight this. This is not just a music issue. This is a cultural diversity issue," he said.

PLAZTIK MAG PRESENTS 9 QUESTIONS WITH DICK WATERMAN

Photographs of music legends by Dick Waterman courtesy of MorrisonHotel Gallery
 
“Agent, manager, producer, promoter, Dick Waterman is the only person inducted in The Blues Hall of Fame who was not either a performing artist or a record company executive. He established himself in the Blues community as a diligent advocate for the artists and the art of Blues. Waterman is primarily known today as an archivist and photographer of Blues, Country, Rock and Jazz legends from Mississippi John Hurt to Mick Jagger and Eric Clapton. His commitment to documenting the Blues artists he worked with and came into contact with throughout the years is legendary.” -MorrisonHotel Gallery
 
1. Who was your favorite subject to photograph and why?
 
Dick Waterman: I loved photographing JANIS JOPLIN. She was a fury of energy and held nothing back. All you had to do was keep her in focus and she did all the rest.  Mick Jagger is a lot like that too. It’s ’show time’ for him and he wants you to know that he’s going to show you something that you’ve never seen before regardless of how many Stones’ shows you’ve seen.

 
SNOWY RANGE MUSIC FESTIVAL, SEPTEMBER 2-4, 2011
 
Friday night with the Neville Brothers
 
THE NEVILLE BROTHERS
 
Saturday Michael Franti and Spearhead
Sunday Night with George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic!
 
GEORGE CLINTON
 
Its official, the legendary  Michael Franti and Spearhead will be headlining Saturday night Sept 3rd at 8:15. Last year Franti released his new album, “The Sound of Sunshine”; and if that doesn’t sound like a perfect Saturday night, we don’t know what else could. This is sure to be a show that you don't want to miss!
 
We have confirmed the king of funk, George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic for Sunday night, and they are bringing a 26 person entourage to fill the giant stage with an exciting and colorful party. Warming up the arena for P-funk will be New Orleans brass sensations, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Ave., and that's just the tail end of three days of music and fun.
 
TROMBONE SHORTY
 
We are featuring many styles of music for those of you who like variety, but for you roots music fanatics, we'll always have a blues band going on one of the three stages. We have the big band sound of Davina & the Vagabonds and the zany antics of Ryan Shupe & the Rubberband. We have humorist band leader and songwriter Paul Thorn, and this year we are featuring a dance set with the Colorado Blues Dancers backed by California guitarist, Bernie Pearl and his fine band.
 
The days will be filled with exciting world class performers you haven't heard before, such as Sherman Robertson out of Houston, Texas, David Maxwell the sensational keyboardist out of Boston, and Paul Oscher who played in Muddy Waters band. England's young, handsome, guitar sensation, Oli Brown, will make his American debut since signing a recording contract with Ruf Records and winning several big awards in Britain. Also Miss Blues, Moreland & Arbuckle, and the return of Wyoming's Taylor Scott & Another Kind of Magick after their trip to Memphis and the fame it brought them.

BEALE STREET WEEPS: MOURNERS PAY TRIBUTE TO TRUMPET-PLAYING 'MAYOR' RUDY WILLIAMS
BEALE STREET'S "MAYOR" RUDY
 
by Richard Morgan
 
Whenever a central figure on Beale Street died, the district's merchants and musicians and mainstays turned to one man as music director for the funeral processions that honored Beale Street royalty on a path from B.B. King's to W.C. Handy Park.
 
That man was Rudy Williams. But not this time.
 
Williams' body was recovered Tuesday night from a wooded area in Whitehaven, less than a mile from his home. He had been missing for a week.
 
On Wednesday, the Shelby County Medical Examiner said fingerprints from the body matched Williams'. With the cause of death unknown, the ongoing case is being investigated as a death and not a homicide, said Alyssa Macon-Moore, a spokeswoman for the Memphis Police Department.
 
Having played on Beale for half a century, Williams, 70, had earned the nickname "The Mayor of Beale Street," but people referred to him just as frequently as a fixture there. The trumpeter had always led the mourners in funeral processions.
 
Wednesday night on Beale, a few friends of Williams gathered to say goodbye. They held candles and remembered the man many of them worked with at King's Palace Cafe.
 
"He really needs to be remembered. He was out here every day, all the time," said Tina Daniels, whom Williams called "Miss San Diego" in reference to her hometown. "He was great. He was a wonderful guy."

ROTORUA BLUES FESTIVAL: DOUG McLEOD TO PLAY
DOUG MCLEOD  is welcomed to Rotorua by local Te Arawa members
 
 
Rotorua music lovers will have the rare opportunity to hear one of the world's greatest blues masters this weekend.
 
The BOP Blues club is hosting American Blues singer/songwriter Doug McLeod at the Rotorua Blues Festival this week with workshops held by him at the Novotel Lakeside during the week culminating in a concert at the Novotel Lakeside on Saturday night and a cruise on Sunday and a lunchtime jam on Monday.
 
Mr McLeod will be running song writing workshops and a Blues Guitar Masterclass throughout the weekend, Ms Garner said.
 
However, Saturday's concert at the Novotel featuring McLeod would be one any blues lover wouldn't want to miss out on, she said.
 
"People can expect to see something they would rarely get to see in New Zealand," she said.

‘WANG DANG DOODLE’ ALL NIGHT
DONNA HERULA & JOAN GAND
 
 
Joan Gand noticed this year’s lineup at the annual Chicago Blues Festival is rather light on female performers.
 
So when Reggie’s Music Joint in Chicago asked her to put together a show for June 10, the keyboard player for Blue Road rounded up nine blues women and decided to dedicate the five-hour show to the late, great Chicago blues diva Koko Taylor and call it “Chicago Women in the Blues.”
 
The line-up includes HolleThee Maxwell, Peaches Staten, Vivian Vance Kelly, Demetria Taylor, Liz Mandeville, Ramblin Rose, Donna Herula, Dia Madden and Cruise Machine, and Ebonie Taylor, Koko Taylor’s niece, all backed by Blue Road.
 
Gand, of Riverwoods, said when you think of Chicago blues women, you think of Koko Taylor, best known for her version of the Willie Dixon song, “Wang Dang Doodle” in 1966. Taylor passed away in 2009.
 
“I think it’s important to keep her memory alive,” Gand said.

BB KING MOVIE IN THE WORKS
WENDELL PIERCE AND BB KING
 
 
Actor Wendell Pierce will be starring as B.B. King--the "King of Blues"--in an upcoming film, B.B. King and I. It's based on an encounter that aspiring drummer Michael Zanetis had with B.B. King at the back stage of Huntington Beach venue Golden Bear, after which he became lifelong friends with the king.
 
Pierce established his acting career through popular television show dramas like The Wire on HBO, including movies like The Fighting Temptations and Hackers. Pierces' most recent role is that of a trombone player on HBO's television series, Treme.
 
On May 18th, Pierce made an official statement on Twitter about his role in the upcoming film: "I am set to play BB King in the movie "BB King and I". Just got my Lucille. Production dates aren't set yet."
 
It is said that Patrick Fugit will carry on the role of ambitious drummer Zanetis. According to collider.com, Michael Schroder will most likely direct the film with a potential movie release date of 2012. Zanetis himself is also lined up to produce the independent film which he co-wrote with Melora Donoghue.

VIDEO OF THE WEEK
 
 
Bobby "Blue" Bland:
Today, Yesterday and "Further On Up The Road"
 
Today - Blues legend Bobby “Blue” Bland is suing a California man who claims to be his son, according to court papers the Memphis recording artist has filed. Bland, a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, wants the court to issue an order to stop Rodney Lopes of Sacramento from using his name to promote his musical career. Bland is also seeking $1 million in punitive damages.
Yesterday - Bobby "Blue" Bland grew up in Memphis and got his start singing with local gospel groups. After serving in the Army, Bland returned to Memphis and went on tour with Little Junior Parker doubling as his valet driver at first.  Before long Bobby had hit records that reached top 10 on the R&B charts.
 

DO YOU HEAR WHAT I HEAR? IT'S THE BLUES EAR!
June 3, 2011
 
This is turning out to be quite interesting to me!  Radio personalities are just that - personalities and vocal!  Love it!  This week I pose a question to JC Hammer of 'Hammered By The Blues' Weekly Radio on KOWZ 1170am Owatonna, MN
 
 
 
Q: What makes a good blues song?
 
A: The melody needs to grab my attention in the first eight bars of the song. It isn't always the number of notes played, but the emotion communicated by the artist in the 'hang and dwell'. Lyrics should tell a story about common human conditions, whether pain and sorrow or joy and release. Classic songs that resonate for me would include 'Key To The Highway', 'Stormy Monday', 'Crossroads Blues' and 'Sweet Home Chicago'. Some of the more contemporary things that have grabbed my ears would include 'Eatin' at Lulu's' off 'Lulu's Hose' by J. Edwards and 'Karma' off 'Just My Luck' by The Terry Quiett Band. 
 

2011 TINNER HILL BLUES FESTIVAL JUNE 10–12
DEANNA BOGART
 
by Michael Rugel
 
The Tinner Hill Foundation pays tribute to the great John Jackson every year with a nice lineup of blues talent throughout the weekend. It kicks off Friday at the State Theater with Bob Margolin and Guitar Shorty headlining a bill that also features Daryl Davis. Margolin is a blues pro who took his years in Muddy Waters’  band to hone his craft while learning under one of the all-time masters. He’s got the slide guitar and Chicago blues sound nailed. Guitar Shorty is known for his high-energy shows and guitar fireworks. At 71 years old, his days of doing flips on stage are behind him, but he’s sure to provide an entertaining performance.
 
The big day is Saturday at Cherry Hill Park.  It’s a nice gathering of local and regional talent. The highlight will definitely be the ”Ladies Singing the Blues” segment. After performing individually, four talented blueswomen from the region will join forces. Nadine Rae with her huge voice will join blues virtuoso on both piano and saxophone Deanna Bogart, roots-rock vocalist Patty Reese, and Gaye Adegbalola, formerly of Saffire and one of the most clever songwriters in the blues.

YOUR VOTE MEANS CASH FOR THE CLINIC THAT TREATED SONNY BOY'S SISTERS WHEN THEY DIED IN THE FIRE
 
Sr. Brooks has been nominated for the Catholic Extension's Lumen Christi Award along with 13 other exceptional individuals who exemplify the true missionary spirit.  The winner of this award will receive a $25,000 grant .  Voting ends Friday June 3rd at 5:00 PM
 
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE... go to this website:     http://tutwilerclinic.org/,   and vote for Sister Anne Brooks of Tutwiler. It takes two clicks, one minute, tops.
 
Here is a close to the bone story about Sister Anne and Jam Camp.  As you may know, we just finished a Six Day Jam Camp in Clarksdale, Mississippi.
 
On Day 1, coach Cheryl Arena stumbled and fell...and was having trouble breathing.  Cheryl had no money for the Clarksdale Hospital so she was driven to the tiny clinic 10 miles away in Tutwiler.  Cheryl was treated personally by Sister Anne Brooks, the orthopedic surgeon and Sister who founded  the Clinic.  Cheryl didn't know who she was, but the next day she said "she had been treated by an angel."  And yes Sister Ann is an angel.   Just looking at her picture at http://www.tutwilerclinic.org will make YOU feel better.  There will be no bill from Tutwiler. They knew from the front Cheryl is a blues musician with no doctor type cash, and  they saw her anyway.  Cheryl is fine, by the way. She is still sore and playing harp at 80% capacity (which is still 120% of most people). She said Sister Brooks held her and massaged her to calm her down.  Keep getting better, Cheryl.   And thank you, Sister Ann!
 
 
And pass this letter on!

EVEN BIKERS GET TO HAVE THE BLUES!!!
3rd ANNUAL BIKER BASH ROCKS THE FOOTHILLS OF NORCAL
By Felicia Morgan
 
The 2-day gig hosted by Good Time Charlie Brechtel was an over-the-top biker blowout. The Charlie Brechtel Band, Pinky Rideau and the Blind Resistance as well as the fabulous Fryed Brothers provided the tunes and generally rocked the house.  There was even a “best biker beard” contest and a guy with a noticeable resemblance to Santa Claus won. The dude was even wearing a red shirt. Could it be that what we’ve always suspected is true…Santa really IS a biker? And he vacations in NorCal?
 
 
The high point of the weekend was when Jacquie Mann, widow of the famous artist David Mann, was presented a lifetime achievement award for David’s many contributions to the biker community.
 
 
Of course it’s not a party until the fuzz pull up so when the local constables rolled in and had their own version of a meet n’ greet out in the parking lot, Charlie went out to see what was up. Being the consummate host that he is, Good Time Charlie delivered lemonade to the officers as they directed the congested traffic out front.  Who can possibly be mean with a glass of lemonade in their hand?

 
 
Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time. The first club started in Detroit Michigan in 1915 as a business and professional men’s club. Over the years it has evolved into the service-focused groups of men and women that you see today. Today, there are now over 7,700 Kiwanis clubs in 80 countries.
 
Kiwanis of the Redwoods was chartered in March of 1950 in Garberville, Ca. Our club has changed through the years and today we have 28 members and meet regularly at the Healy Senior Center in Redway with additional meetings ranging anywhere from Phillipsville to Piercy. We serve a large rural area and have members from Benbow to Rio Dell.
 
This year the Original Redwood Run will include the acts: Tommy Castro Band,  The Fryed Brothers,  Kaye Bohler,  Amanda Gray, Charlie Brechtel, L.A. Guns,  Ronnie Montrose,  II Big, The Reflectacles!,  Savannah Blue,  Crossroads, Michael Lee Firkins,  The ‘Mones and more!


THE 4th ANNUAL DELMARK RECORDS' CHICAGO BLUES FEST AFTER-PARTY
 
June 11, 2011 at Reggie's Music Joint-2105 S. State St, Chicago, 9:00 pm-1:30 am-Delmark Records' Chicago West Side Stomp!
Many Delmark artists are performing at our Chicago Blues version of New Orleans' Ponderosa Stomp  festival - "Celebrating the Unsung Heroes of Chicago Blues & Soul" - including West Side Blues originator/innovator Eddie C. Campbell,  the one and only supreme entertainer Tail Dragger, fantastic blues/soul singer James Kinds (celebrating his recent Delmark CD,  Love You From The Top), deep blues singer Mary Lane, and under the radar harp ace/singer Reginald Cooper, and brilliant Magic Sam styled guitarist Vernon Harrington. The house band will be the House Rockin' Johnny Band, led by our favorite guitar man, Rockin' Johnny Burgin, who can run circles around most and has an encyclopedic blues mind and versatile enough to provide the oh so important perfect backing, along with Rick Kreher on guitar (Muddy Waters' last guitarist and also guitarist with Mud Morganfield and Studebaker John.) There's always special guests at this real deal old school Chicago Blues party! Two years ago, Big Jack Johnson brought down the house and last year Bobby Parker, Sonny Rhodes, Wisconsin bluesman Pee Wee Hayes and Chitlin' circuit star Bobby Rush's former guitarist Mickey Rogers tore it up til the wee hours of the morn at this intimate local south loop rock club. This is a rare and special opportunity to experience all of these artists in one small venue!
 
Doors open at 8pm and music starts at 9pm.
For promo CDs, high res.color JPGs, or an interview with many of the above artists, contact Kevin Johnson at Delmark records, 773-539-5001 or bluesjazz@delmark.com.
