Welcome to JAMOS JAMS & GIGS for 5/22/13, issue #291. Send me your May & June gig schedules!! 

 

Stuff - News - Questions - 'N Stuff!!

RIP Ray Manzarek.  I'm doing too many of these lately.

 

 

Here’s a message fromthe great NASTY NED: " If you missed Uncle Pete's Blues Party radio show on WNTI two Sundays ago, you may not know yet that I announced I would not be booking anymore live shows after my current obligations are satisfied - July 5th Robin's Nest, Linden with Michael Krizan and the Roots Rebels - yes, playing the songs of ROOTS 52 - is the last one in the book.  My schedule is pretty thin between now and July 5th - there's 2 nights in Lake Placid, NY with Johnny Charles in June - and a couple more Jersey dates that I'll post after this Saturday's festival, but that's it. So I do hope to see you.  Do i have any plans? Yes, some, but they don't involve the music business. Well, I do plan to release some previously unreleased recordings that you can download from iTunes, etc or stream on Pandora, etc. But that's about it.Why? Well, it just feels like "time". I hope you'll forgive me. But more than anything, I hope to see you soon.  As always, thanks for everything,

ned

 

PS... how bout one for the road - http://www.reverbnation.com/nastyned/song/12551611-not-a-married-man

 :-) ..yes, it was a true story

********************

So I hear that they're talking about lowering the DWI alcohol limit from 0.8 to 0.5.  Gee, that'll help the live music business, right???? What’s next – a ban on the blues??? Hey if youze guys dont send me updates I cant give you any news! Send me any new club info that you have, and do you have any jam updates??

 

 

We’ve all bitched and moaned about clueless club owners – here’s a really good response from a club owner. I have to say that I agree with a lot that he has to say!  So if you’re putting a band together, or deciding on a song list, check this out: http://onstagemagazine.com/open-letter-from-a-bar-owner-to-musicians/

 

The summer season is upon us.  I am happy to report that the TGAR Tour II is scheduled for June 20-21-22-23 in North Carolina!  The JAMO BAND will be playing with BILL DEHART at Cosmo's on Friday, and Sundog's on Saturday.  All in the outer banks again.  Let's hope there are fewer casualties this time around!!  (BTW, "TGAR” stands for "Them Guys Ain't Right!)  The big blue bus rolls again!

 

 

So there are now several newsletters (in addition to this one!) offering live music information to you:

**BARRY HAY covers the NE PA area; contact him at bhay46@rcn.com or www.hayblue.com

**In Bucks County check with MASON LOIKA at www.buckslivemusic.com

**If youre playing in the Philadelphia and surrounding areas, send your info to  THE BLUES COLLABORATIVE at  http://www.bluescollaborative.com

 

Guess what? Seaside Park is BACK, baby!!  The TRACY LEE BAND is doing our annual concert there on July 22.  BIG NANCY, well save the blues numbers just for you to sit in on.  Does anyone have a set of lights that I can borrow for the show?

 

The summer music season is firing up around here, and outdoor gigs are happening.  I hope that you have a few.  The jams seem to be getting livlier too. 

 

 

Hey Ive heard from quite a few players that they are looking for bands.  If you need a player, let me know and Ill get contact info to you. Also see the listing in the "Want Ads" section below!

PRESS

"Mr. Flynn is probably the most attentive pro drummers I have ever worked with. It's not just intuition or practicing a lot. It's listening and watching the frontman as to where the song is going even if He's never played the song before."  JR Bradfield, The Studio Masters, vol. 3
