    The Cliffnotes, featuring Valerie Johnson and Al B Blue are kicking off summer concert series at Poalillo (Po-lil-oh) Vineyards on Saturday, September 5th at 6:30PM. The North County's favorite BBQ maestro, Miss Odette, will be serving the tongue tantalizing dinner ( a modest, additional charge). This merry band of swamp, boogie blues rockers is led by Cliff “Crawdaddy” Stepp whose songs have been produced by B.B. King and recorded by Pure Prairie League, The Virginia Squires, 49 Special and others. Valerie Johnson has toured with Big Brother and the Holding Company, the band made famous by Janis Joplin. Although often compared to Etta James and Janis Joplin, Valerie has a style all her own due, in part, to her time spent touring the world with well known gospel groups. Lead guitarist, Al B Blue, is a classically trained pianist who started his showbiz career as part of a New Jersey Doo-Wop group, then moved to the West Coast and joined an Afro-Funk band that toured with Curtis Mayfield and Hugh Masekela. Ticket price includes first glass of wine and dessert.
