Woah. This summer is going by WAY TOO FAST! Though we are sad to say goodbye to July in a few days, we are excited to roll into August, because this first weekend is always a doozy! We are, of course, speaking of DAM BLUES FEST and Pub Crawl!
Did you know that our very own Steve “The Iceman” Bailey was in on this humble little blues festival right from the very get go? Organized and run by our very good friends Paul and Debra Sidelinger, the Dam Blues Fest is heading into it’s 5th year! Paul and Debra have brought in some fantastic talent from Maine and beyond! In the past four years, we’ve seen the awesome J.P. Soars & The Red Hots (Florida), The Racky Thomas Band (Boston), Lydia Warren (Boston/beyond), Victor Wainwright (Georgia), Sugar Ray & The Blue Tones (Boston), and more! It’s also always been a wonderful and warm show case for our Maine blues acts, both on the main stage and on the Pub Crawl. So, this is a Black Cat Road approved event, and we would really like to see you all there!
This year, Black Cat Road will be performing on the Pub Crawl, over at Schooner Landing. On your way hang with us, be sure to stop in and check out our friends; The Juke Joint Devils, Ragged Jack, and The Blood Orange Martinis. All the performances, times, venues and ticket information are listed at the Dam Blues Fest web site, and be sure to like it on the Facebook!
BEFORE we head up / down to Damariscotta on Saturday, August 2, we will be sneaking in another little show at The Frog & Turtle in Westbrook, Me. We play from 8:30 to 10:30 or so, and we really have a great time in that room. Intimate and cozy, awash with the intoxicating aromas from chef James’ kitchen – ah. It’s all right, baby. That’s Friday, August 1.
