2008: The Bay Area Blues Scene in Review

I haven't written much here lately, but it seems like a good time to get caught up. I'll start off with a photo entry.

I started up my annual Bay Area Blues in Review photo gallery. The photos are in the usual place:

Who have I captured this year?

Some of the usual suspects, plus some photos of new faces belonging to people that I hadn't seen before.

January 23, 2008 - I visited the Redwood City Blues Jam. It was hosted by Steve Freund and his Trio. Steve had several guests join him during the course of the evening including Jan Fanucchi, Johnny Blues Boyd and myself.

Sadly, I forgot to charge my camera battery and only caught some photos of Johnny Blues Boyd, Steve Freund & Burton Winn.

January 13, 2008 - I headed down to the Mojo Lounge in Fremont. I caught the Red Archibald Tribute show. It was a day long musical extravaganza that commemorated the life and music of Red Archibald.

Some of the people that I caught in action included:

Delta Wires (including Ernie Pinata and Richard Healy), JC Smith, Rene Solis, Taylor P Collins, Suzy Tyler, Tumbleweed, Jimmy Dewrance, Raymond Victor, Diane Dutra, Rick Kellogg and Andrew Beal

January 11, 2008 - Photo from the Poor House Bistro of Kid Andersen and Sid Morris sitting in with Charles Wheal and his fine band.
