It’s Official! Everyone please welcome Sam Mudd as our new bassist/vocalist! Sam has a ton of experience, having played with Sarasota Slim, Lucky Peterson, and was the original bassist in the legendary Tampa Bay blues band Rock Bottom & The Cutaways! Sam brings a huge dose of energy and groove to the band, locking in with Dave Simmons to create a powerhouse rhythm section that’s already turning heads! Come and check out the new lineup in the coming weeks-it’s a scorcher!!

Alrighty, now I can make a couple announcements!!!

First off, there’s a few festivals coming up- the band is playing Hernando’s Lake House Bluesfest again this year, on November 15th!!! With Damon Fowler topping the lineup, this is gonna be a real barn-burner for sure!!!

Couple fests that I’ll be playing my solo acoustic blues- October 4th, I’ll be heading up to Camden, SC to play in the Carolina Downhome Blues Festival!!! Most likely will be playing another gig or 2 on the way up there, so look out Georgia and the Carolinas!

The other fest is a little closer to home-Artoberfest in Oveido, FL on October 19th-again should be lots of fun!!!

Hope to see all of you real soon!!!
