Word continues to spread on how much FUN and boogie blues dancing power The Cliffnotes bring to any occasion. The band features Cliff “Crawdaddy” Stepp, a singer/songwriter from Arroyo Grande who’s had songs recorded by Pure Prairie League and blues tunes produced by B.B. King, among others. On vocals and washboard, is the world renowned Valerie Johnson, who toured with Big Brother & The Holding Company “filling in” for Janis Joplin. Al B Blue, is the lead (and wicked slide) guitar player who was in bands that opened for the likes of Curtis Mayfield and Hugh Masekala. Rounding out this rockin’ ensemble is a harp player who has performed with a long list of blues legends throughout the U.S., Joey Five & Dimes. Plus, accomplished jazz/rock bassist, Doctor Stan, the Bassman and the Zen master of percussion, Daniel “Grasshopper” Ruben. Their unique blend of boogie blues, swampafied classic rock and funky dance rhythms has kept dance floors hopin’ throughout the Central Coast.Tickets Save
