Highway 99 Blues Club, the audience got to see who the Washington Blues Society is sending to Memphis to compete at the International Blues Challenge in the solo/duo category: "Porch Stomp" with Nick Vigarino. Nick did one set with the drummer who is the other half of his duo act. The audience was then astounded by the band he brought on stage, adding a wild fiddle player so Nick could have dueling guitar-fiddle was great. He also did a few slower songs as well as his usual fast ones, and that was a treat.
On this same night there was great blues music in Portland, Tacoma, Spokane, Snohomish, and all over the Pacific NW. The region has the blues, and it sounds great. I was lucky enough to have caught what may have been one of the better shows of the night.
Be sure to attend the "Blues Invasion" on Nov. 7th in Snohomish, WA at the Oxford Saloon. The proceeds will go to sending Porch Stomp and the Wired! band to represent the Washington Blues Society in Memphis at the International Blues Challenge. Click here for more information on the event.
