Memphis Mess Around Tour Wrap Up
What a great week at the IBC and a fantastic wrap up to our January 2014 Memphis Mess Around tour! Here are some highlights:
Meeting up with old friends at Uncle Bo’s in Topeka and band lunch with Stacy Jeffress, making new friends at our Wichita Blues Society events at the Shamrock and the two Blues in Schools programs, appearing on KOLR-TV in Springfield MO and hanging with our Blues Society of the Ozarks buds (who rescued our trailer tire and brought it to Memphis), our return to the Drop Zone in Leslie AR, doing the live recording at the Juke Joint Chapel at the Shack Up Inn, three shows at the Rum Boogie including the monster jam that raised over 2K for the Blues Foundation, the BITS program at Memphis Downtown Elementary School, Music on the Couch interview with Vinny Marini, and of course the Keeping the Blues Alive Award luncheon. Tremendous people at every turn is what really made this a wonderful experience!
