The Blues Boss is Trippin’!

By Blues Boss 

Well, we wrapped up another busy blues year, and looking forward to an exciting 2011. Economic times are still tough, but that is a big part of what the blues are all about – handling the hard times with a song, a blues song of course. Hopefully the holiday season brought all you blues fans joy and happiness. And, Santa brought you all that great blues music you were looking for – if not, get out there and buy some music from our excellent local musicians.

December sure brought us plenty of great blues shows, as your Washington Blues Society (WBS) put on a couple of excellent fundraisers to help support Back Porch Stomp and the Wired! Band at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in February, 2011. I’m sure both acts will represent us well. And, it sounds like there will be plenty of WBS members on hand to cheer on our representatives.

The 2010 WBS Holiday Party in December, as I was sure would be the case, was a huge success – how can it fail with entertainment like SNAKE OIL, SAMMY EUBANKS BAND, and the CHARLES WHITE REVUE?? And, of course Santa was on hand to make sure every lady got the opportunity to “put in her order” for Christmas! (Santa’s like that!).

So, let’s hope 2011 brings all of us excellent blues music, health and prosperity. And, as always, get out there and support our wonderful musicians and steadfast venues who bring us the music we love.

See you out there “blues trippin’…”
