This Sunday, January 5th I am so excited to be performing at the infamous Double Door Inn in Charlotte. I can remember 25 years ago seeing folks like Eric Clapton and Taj Mahal there and dreaming that one day I would be on that I stage performing. Well this Sunday is that day. The doors open at 7:00 and I start the night at 8:00. After my show (which will feature the songs I'll be performing in Memphis) Skinny Velvet, good friends of mine and the CBS band winner this year, will continue to tear the roof down. Ironically, the boys in Skinny Velvet went to Memphis in 2012 along with me with both of us representing The Blue Ridge Blues Society. We both made the semis that year and since we're repeating that feat this year I'm hoping our experiences taught us enough to move us both into the finals this year. Pretty strange we're both going back this year representing the same society again. I bet the odds of that are pretty slim wouldn't you think?
I' m looking forward to it. My friends in the CBS are awesome supporters and fans... Xavier is one the best sound techs I've ever worked with... and the walls are literally covered with pictures of my heroes who have performed there too. So if you are anywhere close to Charlotte Sunday you need to come out to this event... I would love it and you would too I bet!
