Hi all, just a heads up that while the band is working behind the scenes for most of this summer and enjoying some down time, I’ve booked a number of acoustic shows through August. I’ll have them posted here on BlueJimmy.com
OK, so the word has been getting out there, and it’s true: The Blue Jimmy *Live* CD is finally here! Pulling together a few year’s worth of recordings, mixing them, and mastering them has been a labor of love, and we can’t wait to share the CD with you.
For now, the easiest way to get a copy is to come to a Blue Jimmy show, or get in touch with any one of us. Our next two shows are:
Get yer tunes! Play ’em LOUD!!!
Thanks to Frank de Blase of City Newspaper for stopping out to our recent show at Sticky Lips Pit BBQ. Here’s his review:
“It’s been a while since I’ve caught the world beat/rootsicana of Bloomfield’s Blue Jimmy. These cats swung from honky tonk to funky tonk while the Friday night crowd at Sticky Lips Juke Joint swung from the rafters. And as varied as this band gets — “Blister In The Sun,” hello? — it’s all strung out and strung together with some hell-bound, angelic harmony.”
You can catch the full article in Rochester’s City Newspaper here.
We’re brushing up the final mixes for our live album. It’ll include a dozen of so tracks from across our past 4 albums, all recorded live at various locations we frequent. We’d like to think of it as scrapbook of sorts, a collage of some great memories playing out for you. Hey, every band needs a “Greatest Hits Live”, don’t they?
Next show is on Jan 26 at Mickey Finn’s in Victor, NY. We’re also happy to announce a couple of dates at Sticky Lips Juke Joint in Henrietta, one of our fav rooms. We’ll see you there on Feb 22.
(pssst, hey… this is Mike, hijacking Brian’s post… maybe he was too modest to mention it, but he forgot the little detail that he recently won the Best Musician category of the 3rd Annual Best of Ontario County Awards. Way to go BMan! We’re way proud of you! — Click here for the full listing.)
