MAN!!! We might as well have rolled out a big ol’ red carpet for all the stars in the house at the #probluesjam at @thelocalnash this week! Special guest @austincrumaec blew us away with his incredible guitar stylings! What a future ahead for this young slinger!! Thank you so much for an outstanding showcase, Austin!! With Taiwanese TV show “Music Everywhere” onsite to profile me and document the jam, our Blues jam fam showed up en force!! With co-host Jonathan cheering him on, #Taiwanese TV host Ric Jan opened the jam with some slammin’ #StevieRay tunes, then we were treated to seven jaw-dropping all-star rounds featuring @timsharpheaven, @shaunmurphyband, @hurricaneruth, @caseyjamesofficial, @jenfriendpic, and Big Monti Amundson!! WHAT A NIGHT!! One for the record books!! Thanks to all our amazing, accommodating, supportive, and encouraging jammers, fans, and friends for being such an incredible community and to the darling hosts and crew of “Music Everywhere” for sharing what we do here!! Next Tuesday night, our fantastic gal pal crooner @laurenandersonmusic is our very special guest!! This Chicago baby performs with true passion and zeal every time she hits the stage! Lauren has been touring regionally since 2014, opening for A-list Blues acts like @officialbethhart, @samanthafishmusic, and @walter_trout! She’s just released a killer new EP, “The Game” – get yours at www.laurenanderson.com!! We can’t wait to show her off to you!! The mission of the Tuesday #probluesjam at The Local is to get working musicians working. Those patient and understanding souls who were unable to get on the list this week get dibs next week! All newcomers should speak with the hosts and house band prior to signing up, to set expectation. We’ll see y’all next Tuesday night at 8:00!
