|Last hurrah for celebrated blues trombonist Randy Oxford|
|White Rock’s Blue Frog studios will re-stream a 2019 concert by veteran blues singer/trombonist Randy Oxford later this month.|
The concert, the most recent of the high-energy performer’s International Blues shows to play the Peninsula, will stream online on Saturday, April 24, at 7 p.m.
Occasion for re-streaming the concert is the retirement of Oxford, originally from Chicago, but latterly based in Seattle, from all aspects of the music business on April 1.
In announcing his decision to retire, Oxford said an enforced absence from music due to COVID-19 quarantining had led to some soul-searching, and a decision that it was time to step away from the spotlight.
In his four-decade career, the dynamic entertainer recorded many CDs, and performed concerts across the U.S., Canada and Central America.
Among career highlights were playing the International Blue Challenge in Memphis, and winning over 20 Washington Blues Society Best of the Blues awards, including entertainer of the year, and being elected to the WBS’ Hall of Fame. He also founded the Mountain Rhythm and Blues Festival in Ashford, Washington.
Joining Oxford in the concert is noted South Surrey guitarist and show host Jon Gale; South Surrey keyboardist Jim Widdifield; fellow Surrey singer Tambalena and Vancouver bassist Bruce O’Neill; and a truly international line-up including Seattle drummer Chip Hart; Tacoma vocalist Miranda Kichpanich; Mexican-born guitarist Rafael Tranquillino; and Russian-born guitarist Arsen Shomakov.

|Sneak peek at the upcoming 2021 Blues Festival Guide|
Things are looking up in 2021! We can’t wait to get back to the live music scene, and we know you feel the same. The Blues Festival Guide team is putting together the 2021 issue to bring you the latest happenings on the festival circuit and in our blues community. Here’s a sneak peek into what we’re working on!|
Keeping the Blues Alive During a Pandemic By Irene Johnson
As we are all too aware, the Covid-19 pandemic halted live events and severely hindered the making of music. In this feature, the Blues Festival Guide explores the innovative solutions musicians have come up with to reach their fans, maintain their careers and keep the blues alive.
What’s Cookin’ with Larry Garner
You may be familiar with Baton Rouge bluesman Larry Garner’s songwriting and sound, but what about his cooking? Find out how he soothed his craving for chargrilled oysters during the pandemic – without the grill. Garner’s “Oven Oysters” will have you crankin’ some blues as you lay on the hot sauce.
The Lore of the Train By Michele Lundeen
What's the blues connection? The lore and fascination with trains has been with us for nearly two hundred years. Trains and their winding tracks can harken back to another time, and remind us of life’s trials, survival, wanderlust, excitement, love, humor or even urgency. All those senses, all those deep-seated memories have definitely been inspiration for countless blues songs. Explore that connection further in this feature!
Blues Against Hunger Society
The Blues Against Hunger Society is dedicated to ending hunger while supporting, promoting and preserving the blues. Its food drive events – which include tours, festivals, seasonal musicals and community Jamborees – have fed thousands in the last decade throughout Baja California, Southern California and Arizona. Read on to find out more about their efforts!
Living Legend: Miss Lavelle White By Pam Cosel
Miss Lavelle White is a living legend of the blues. The Texas-based singer-songwriter’s career dates back to the 1950s, and she still captivates audiences on stage at the age of 91. Learn more in this feature how Miss Lavelle has impacted the blues over the last 70 years.
The Blues Foundation Welcomes New Leadership
Patricia Wilson Aden became the new President and CEO of The Blues Foundation in October 2020. The Blues Festival Guide was able to catch up with Patty about her first few months at The Blues Foundation, meeting the challenges of the pandemic and what’s on the horizon looking forward.
Ladies Sing & Play the Blues By Reverend Billy C. Wirtz
The Reverend is back to share his blues wisdom – this time, about some of the great ladies of the blues. Join him in worship of Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Big Maybelle Smith, Willie Mae “Big Mama” Thornton, Memphis Minnie, Camille Howard, Julia Lee, Ella Mae Morse, and the International Sweethearts of Rhythm.
|Soul Survivor and Blues Song Man Curtis Salgado is in control|
|...The blues is a mighty life force with infinite expressiveness and a mystical ability to travel effortlessly across distance and time, race and class. It’s also the story of America, something [Curtis] Salgado understood intuitively, beyond his infatuation with the sound and feel of the music. After hearing a few records, and especially after seeing the Count Basie Band as a kid, he wanted to know everything. He wanted to live the life. And as you’ll hear in Episode 165 of The String, he’s done that and more, touring the world, beating back two forms of cancer, and winning nine Blues Foundation awards, including the B.B. King Entertainer of the Year prize in 2013.|
Our conversation visits several key moments in his journey. Scene one. A kid in an overwhelmingly white town learns about racism from his father’s record collection:
“He had Bunk Johnson. He had Bix Beiderbecke. He had Louis Armstrong. He loved Ray Charles. On the back of one of these records, it said that Count Basie had to enter Carnegie Hall through the back door at one of the biggest, most influential concerts of all time (From Spirituals To Swing, 1938-39). And I remember going what, why is that? Why? My hero! I had no idea. I'm in Eugene, Oregon. Count Basie has to go through the back door at Carnegie Hall? That's crazy. And I couldn't get it together. And of course, you know, it's layers of the onion. As time goes on, you learn more.”
Scene two. By his mid-twenties, Salgado is working the region in a band with fellow emerging artist Robert Cray. One night, Saturday Night Live actor John Belushi wanders into their bar, blowing off steam from filming Animal House, and has his mind blown by the band and by Salgado’s harmonica playing. He demands to meet Salgado.

|Crown jewel of New Jersey blues clubs to reopen |
|(STANHOPE, NJ) - The Stanhope House is widely considered the crown jewel of New Jersey blues clubs. It’s a roadhouse-style musical museum whose memorabilia-adorned walls are flashbacks to the days when icons performed there. It’s a 1790s building that was once also a private home, stagecoach stop, general store, post office, tavern, rooming house, and hotel. It’s a melodic gem that suffered a near-death experience when the pandemic threatened to close it for good.|
But that’s not going to happen. The Stanhope House is alive and well and reopening on Thursday, April 15. The music will play on thanks to a GoFundMe page that raised $9,000 toward a $10,000 goal, other online fundraisers, and live outdoor performances before the weather turned cold.
“The Stanhope House has hosted everyone from blues legends and Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, to locals playing at open-mic nights,” said spokesman Tom Skevin. “And legend has it that Babe Ruth drank there.”
The Skylands Songwriters Guild will host an open mic for its soft reopening on April 15. “The open mics will continue every Thursday starting at 4 p.m.,” Skevin said. “The great thing about them is that anybody and everybody is welcome to sing, dance, or just strut their stuff.” There is no charge for this weekly event.
The hard opening will be held Sunday, April 18, in the beer garden. It will feature the Wig Party band, with special guest Tim Carbone of the band Railroad Earth, Skevin said.
Tickets for this and other upcoming musical events can be purchased online or at the door.
“Due to state-mandated capacity levels, for now the Stanhope House will be open for outdoor events only,” Skevin said, “But this could change depending on how things open up.” …find entire story here at the Township Journal
|CD, Single & DVD Releases |
|Mick Kolassa :: IF YOU CAN’T BE GOOD BE GOOD AT IT |
If You Can’t be Good Be Good At It is
produced by Mick Kolassa aka Michissippi Mick and Jeff Jensen and features a diverse collection of songs and brings together a group of musical friends – a group that only Memphis and the surrounding areas can provide.
The album opens with “I Can’t Help Myself,” an R&B love song that is Memphis through and through, followed by Mick’s “uncover” of James Taylor’s “Lo and Behold.” Title track, “If You Can’t Be Good, Be Good At It” is a phrase Mick often uses at the end of a conversation.
“Good Day For The Blues” is powerful, slow, minor blues; “I’ve Seen” has Mick singing about what he has seen and what he most wants to see; “We Gotta,” Mick invites his lady friend to chase the stars and close down bars – soon. “Sweet Tea,” a Mid-South favorite, is this track’s inspiration.
“Slow and Easy Love” is another slow, minor blues which is popular with the ladies at Mick’s live shows. “Good Night Irene” (no, not that one) is for a DJ friend from Down Under.
Howlin’ Wolf’s classic “Who’s Been Talking,” includes Mick’s very special friend, Blues Brother Willie “Too Big” Hall, on drums.
The album closes with “She Kept Her Head Up,” a song wrote for and about his daughter, Kassi, and her battle with breast cancer. It isn’t blues, but that doesn’t matter.
This album is meant to be fun and sad, to take you up and down and back up, and to give you plenty of reasons to go back and listen a few more times.
If You Can’t be Good Be Good At It is a labor of love; 100% of net proceeds go to The Blues Foundation, split between two important programs: the HART Fund and Generation Blues.
