At 9:00 p.m. Wednesday, April 24, I will be highjacking 25 minutes of my open mic at the Country Tavern in Guilford to showcase my band’s set premiering at the CT Blues Challenge on Thursday night April 25th, in Hartford. My entire six-piece will be in tow: Sam Bradford (lead guitar), Ted Ervin (bass), Tom Knapp (harmonica), Justin Paglino (keys), and Mark Otterson (drums and kilt). If you can’t join us for the party in Hartford Thursday , you need to check out our smokin’ set in Guilford Wednesday.
The Acoustic Open Mic takes place this Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at the Country Tavern, 704 Long Hill Road in Guilford (203) 453-9205. This month’s theme is “It’s All About the Benjamins: Your best songs about money.” Bring your ax, and keep up your chops!
We’re playing this year’s Connecticut Blues Challenge on Thursday, April 25 at Black-Eyed Sally’s, 350 Asylum Street, in Hartford 860-278-Ribs (7427) for the 2013 CT Blues Challenge, 8:40 -9:05 p.m. Twenty other bands are competing to get one of six slots for the finals on June 22. If we win there, we go to Memphis for the national competition. (No pressure or anything!)
