THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES FOR THE WEEKEND OF APRIL 8-9, 2017 That’s Cool Ricky Blues with some Turkey Leg in the background…We heard Cool Ricky Blues in the first hour of the program talking about making all the outfits for his wedding, including the bride’s long dress….Well, he includes his wife and kids in everything.  There is a video out there now with his family doing the Turkey Leg dance.  We have a link to it on the BluesNews Page at BluesTime In The… But, it’s two things you have got to see, or not see… His wife, two sons and daughter are doing the Turkey Leg….One, watch the kid…He’s working hard trying to keep up, and two, I can’t tell the wife from the daughter….And I was scared to ask.  Check it out and tweet me @rojeneblues and let me know what you think….It’s really cool….. It won’t be long now…The 2017 Blues Music Awards will soon take place on May 11th in Memphis Tennessee….Awards will be presented in categories ranging from Soul Male and Female, BB King Entertainer, Contemporary Blues Male and Female Artist, Historical Album, The KoKo Taylor Award, and all in between.  If you want to see who’s nominated and in what category, we have a link to the Blues Foundation’s site on the BluesNews Page at BluesTime In The…Wonder if I can get a press pass for that…..I need a hook up…. And you think Blues Men and Women are just singing the Blues…..Not….This year, Buddy Guy is on tour and is the spokesperson for Prostate Cancer… Buddy will tour with a number of blues legends to spread the word about Prostate Cancer.  Buddy and Bobby Rush just finished a performance in Memphis Tennessee, which was the kick off last week.  They will also be performing New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Nashville and Boston.  The tour will also feature the children of some of these mega blues stars….Shirley King, Carlise Guy, Big Bill Morganfield, Kenny Neal, Freddie Dixon, Rose Reed, and many others.  We’ll keep you informed on the tour.
