Get a free CD with each paid admission to our show at the Arcadia Blues Club December 12.
When I was going over details of our upcoming gig at the ABC with club manager Bob Dahms, he asked me about how many people I expected. I thought for a minute, and then said, Oh, about 50. He laughed and said, That would be fantastic, and then added, I'll bet you can't do it! I came back with, Just watch me! So, I decided to take out some insurance.
Here's the deal: Everyone who buys a ticket, either in advance ($5 -see link below), or at the door ($10), will receive a voucher, good for a free copy of either our latest CD, "Old School Blues, Acoustic/Electric" (a double disc CD), or the classic CD we made with the late Papa John Creach a while back, "Papa Blues". You can pick them up there that night.
Music critic Joel Okida said of Old School, "If you are going to buy just one blues CD this year consider this one before any others." (www.FolkWorks.org )
Of Papa Blues, reviewer Al Lubiejewski said in JazzErie, "Thank the stars we will always have this one shining testament to his greatness."
You just can't lose on December 12: five hours of great blues with two bands, the Bobby Bluehouse Band and the Bernie Pearl Blues Band, a free blues CD with each paid admission, and tickets costing only $5 & $10. Such a deal!
And that ain't all, folks! I have also decided to try out a new approach to concert music sales suggested by CDBab by offering additional copies of both CDs at a "whatever you can pay" price. Holiday blues gifts made easy. Heck, why not treat the blues fans in your life to a show while you're at it.
