Music Report for Oct. 28, 2005

Hello Friends, this one will be quick. Here we go!

First, the headlines:
My duo show with Marlyn Campbell was quite successful, and the management at Birdi's has asked for more dates. The exact dates are still being negotiated, I'll keep you informed. Big thanks to our old and new friends there!

Larry Griffith has been sponsored to compete in the International Blues Challenge. The local round will be Sunday, November 13th at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Buford Hwy. He says he intends to win; if so, we go to Memphis to compete for the top honors.
See for details. While you're there, be sure to try clicking on the "ABS Bluescast" logo (in flaming letters at the top of the page) to hear an excellent 24-hour stream of blues. (big props to Mark Alestra for his work on this project)

Speaking of the Atlanta Blues Society, this just might be the week that they finally add The North End's weekly blues jam to their calendar. We will be celebrating my one year anniversary as host of that fine jam on this Tuesday night, November 2nd. I expect a lot of fine talent out to help us celebrate, so be sure to catch an early evening nap so you don't have to leave before the grand finale. The North End earned several mentions in the Atlanta Journal Constitution's Top 10 list in several categories, including best burgers and best live music. Make sure you and your friends don't miss it! Wanna hear some of what goes on there? Hear us here:
