THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR DECEMBER 13-14, 2014

There is a great article in Blues Blast Magazine on Trudy Lynn. It talks about her recent awards, and her latest BCD entitled Royal Oaks Blues Café.  I found out something about that Royal Oaks Blues Café that I didn’t know.  It’s in tribute to the earlier women of the Blues, I knew that, but this is something so simple and I think it a brilliant idea.  The BCD’s title is the street Trudy lives on…That is so cool.  There’s a link to the Blues Blast Magazine article at bluestimeinthecity.com.  Just click the BluesNews Tab.

We’ve been talking with artists about their favorite and most memorable gift they got for Christmas as a kid… Patrick The PG Man Green says he will never forget a gift he got when he was ten…Especially coming from a large Family…  (Patrick Green Audio)

Did you notice he even did the sound effect for his bike…That was cool….

BLUESNEWS FROM THEWORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THEWEEKEND OF NOVEMBER 22-23, 2014

Thursday is Thanksgiving, and next weekend, the Thanksgiving weekend, we will begin our All Christmas Blues and Southern Soul weekend until Christmas…We have requests from Please Come Home for Christmas, to The Santa Claus Slide…. If you have not gotten your request in, you can do so by emailing us at ro@bluestimeinthecity.com, on twitter @rojeneblues, and on the Blues Hot Line at 404/826-BLUES…This is going to be so much fun….Believe it or not, Christmas is here and I love it…..

The Blues Foundation has announced it’s 2015 Keeping The blues Alive Awards.  The luncheon will be held Friday, January 23rd in Memphis.  Each and every year, the Blues Foundation gives the award to individual and organizations that have made significant contributions to the Blues.  To read all the recipients, we have a link at bluestimeinthecity.com…
www.blues.org

What will happen to Printers Alley.  The Alley, located in Nashville Tennessee, has long been the spot for country music and the blues.  But now, the developers are coming in to put hotels, and other stuff there.  There is somewhat of a battle between the citizens who thinks that the soul of music City could be lost to progress and the developers.  It’s not exactly known yet, but according to some, this may be a blessing in disguise.  They are saying with the progress, more people will come to the city to hear the music, which will be a great shot in the arm for The Blues….. If the buildings are repurposed, like some are purposing, this could be a good thing……Printers Alley has been there since the early 1900’s and has been in a state of deterioration of late.  We’ll keep up with this and keep you informed….We have a link to the article on our web site……bluestimeinthecity.com

THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF NOVEMBER 15-16, 2014

That’s Longtime Bluesman and front man for the band, The Mannish Boys, Finis Tasby…Finis passed away earlier this month….He was originally from Dallas Texas, but wound up making  LA his home.  He  worked with Z.Z. Hill, B.B. King, Joe Simon, Lowell Fulson, Freddie King, Clarence Carter and many others….. He never had the big hit, but he was always on the scene…He was in the movie, Sharkey’s Machine with Burt Reynolds and a couple of his songs including “People Don’t Care” were featured in the mid 90’s movie “The Baby Sitter” The song in the Background is JOB for Christmas, and will be prominently featured in our upcoming presentation of Christmas Blues and Southern Soul….Finis or Finis, was 74 years of age….

We mentioned a few weeks ago that The Official Rhythm and Blues Music Hall of Fame founder was considering Clarksdale Mississippi and a location for its new home, to open soon…Well, if’s official…The CEO, LaMont Robinson made the decision a week ago and the announcement was made that Clarksdale will be the new home.  Clarksdale beat out cities like Detroit, Memphis, and Nashville for the honor….Robinson also said the museum will also be the home of the National Blues Center and the National Gospel Hall of Fame…Robinson also said the reason for Clarksdale, “This is where it all began….”

And don’t forget, as mentioned, we will begin to play all Christmas Blues and Southern Soul on Thanksgiving Weekend, November 29-30th, and continue every weekend until Christmas….This is going to be soooooo Wonderful……
