Samantha Fish sold out the Old Rock House on Feb. 1st, and Odds Lane opened up strong to set the evening. It was a 'National Blues Museum Presents' event!

It's such a natural way to work with both local and touring Blues artists, when their route brings them through St. Louis, and with the venues that support them - it's just one more way to help keep the Blues alive and thriving.

It's also a great opportunity to showcase the National Blues Museum and St. Louis, both a home to the Blues.

• Bob Baugh is a dedicated volunteer at the National Blues Museum, and you'll also find him writing for KDHX radio. Here's his latest article on the new '17 in 17' CD, just released by the St. Louis Blues Society!

• From Doug at Odds Lane – ‘We are thrilled to announce our new album is currently being mixed by Grammy Awards winning producer and all around musical genius David ‘Z’ Rivkin from Minneapolis and currently residing in Los Angeles. He is most well Odds Laneknown for his long-standing work with Prince, but has also contributed to award winning albums by Etta James, Billy Idol, BoDeans, Buddy Guy and Neneh Cherry.

We are excited to be once again be working with David and can’t wait to have the David Z magic touch on an album that was already filled with great performances captured by Mike Zito at MARZ Studio in Texas. Mike also will appear on several tracks of the album. More details to come on the eventual release date later this year."

Torrey Casey & the Southside Hustle, Kingdom Brothers duo and Eugene Johnson were recently the St. Louis representatives at the 2018 International Blues Challenge in Memphis (see our CD review below for Torrey Casey & the Southside Hustle).

Boo Boo Davis"OLD SKOOL, James 'Boo Boo' Davis ninth and latest CD, surges straight at you with gut-bucket fervor".......here's the review, by Michael Higgins!! "Whether it's the heavy but funky back-beat, the shrill and classy harp, or Boo'ssoul-worn voice, this trance-like train of sound openly cries "Thank you DAVE."
(FYI: For the uninitiated, DAVE refers to Boo Boo's all-knowing and guiding higher spirit.)"

• Joe Metzka just released his new CD, titled 'Live at BB's'! Here's the review by Michael Higgins!

The St. Louis Blues Society is proud to present 1

On November 28th, 2016, Johnnie 'B. Goode' Johnson was posthumously honored with the Congressional Gold Medal of Honor, at a ceremony held at the National Blues Museum. There was a full room of family and friends on hand to share in this occasion.



Presenting the medal was Senator McCaskill, and accepting the honor, his widow Frances Johnson. You see, in addition to being a Blues pioneer, Johnnie was also a Montford Point Marine, the African-American Marine unit that endured racism and inspired social change while integrating the previously all-white Marine Corps during World War II.


Eleven years after their last studio album, the forever Rolling Stones are back once again with "Blue and Lonesome", a tribute to the blues legends who forged the band's soul.

"This album is a homage to our favourites, people that kicked us off in playing music, that was the reason we started a band," charismatic frontman Mick Jagger recently told The New York Times newspaper. "We were proselytisers of blues music; that's what we're still doing."


"Local musician plays his way onto the Billboard Top Ten" - scroll through the Billboard top 10 Blues Albums and his name appears on the same page as Eric Clapton and Bonnie Raitt. "Yeah it made it all the way to number five on the Billboard Blues charts," Jeremiah Johnson says.....read more here (below at the Big Muddy Fest) The 2016 Big Muddy Blues Festival on Laclede’s Landing - with 100% local bands - was an amazing success! Not surprising, as St. Louis talent is 100% international talent!

Kim Welsh - longtime Street Teamer here at STLBlues - has been capturing the culture of Louisiana in her photography for a long time, along with her work in Blues music.

Her work is featured in the book "The Way I See It", as Kim and fellow photographers join together to share their love for New Orleans

The St. Louis Blues Patriarch Big George Brock was born in Grenada, Mississippi! http://www.last.fm/music/Big+George+Brock/+wiki



The world, not just Blues music, lost a great woman with the passing of Candye Kane. She gifted so many with the magic she could bring to a room, and the friends she made along her journey. It went far beyond her music, it was also her indominitable, brave spirit. She'll be missed by so many, may her music be eternal.....



St. Louis harmonica master Jim McClaren contributed every harmonica in this National Blues Museum exhibit, but only after he wore all of them out. Visit the NBM and see for yourself! Stay 'In the Groove' at the NBM for all the latest news, and visit the NBM on Facebook.

• Young Bluesman Matt 'The Rattlesnake' Lesch had the honor of playing the opening National Anthem for the St. Louis Blues hockey team! It's no wonder - by age 17 this blues prodigy had already played at St Louis Bluesweek, headlined the Wildwood BBQ Bash Festival in Wildwood MO, played with Marquise Knox at the Webster Jazz and Blues Fest in Webster MO and played at the King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena AR.

It says a lot about this blues town when it attracts masters of the blues to pack up and move here to share their craft - blues pianist and preservationist Eathan Leinwald, and Houston's famed John McVey to our town!


Where does the ‘Blues Boss’ Kenny Wayne go to find some world class talent to join him on his Brazil tour? St. Louis, that’s where! He pulled in the amazing talents of Rich McDonough, Sharon Bear and Keith Robinson to join him.

Check out STLive, and live music every Friday night on Washington Ave.

• Film producer Joanne Fish is finished working on her latest project - Mr. Handy's Blues: A Musical Documentary. It's brought her to St. Louis to film some St. Louis artists such as John Covelli, Vince Martin, Matt Lesch and Kim Massie, Jeremiah Johnson, performing what else...Handy's song 'St. Louis Blues'!! Here's some history on W.C. Handy, known as 'The Father of the Blues.

A new review from East Side Slim - "T And A – (“Untitled, but referred to as the Kitchen Album”).

Blues music education
Blues is an American art form, and part of what we do at STLBlues is share Blues music in a variety of ways. From reaching countries like Chile & Nigeria through 'America's Corners', to our festival & instrument workshops, lectures and performances! Blues in the Schools (BITS) is one of our favorite events, as it holds our record attendance -- 1,800 kids on one day!

Blues education crosses the disciplines of history, geography, social studies, and of course, music. Who knows...beyond creating the next generation of Blues music fans & helping to keep the Blues alive, we may even spark the next Etta James or B.B. King!

No matter what your event, contact us today at stlouisblues@swbell.net to add some Blues power! We work with the finest performers and educators in St. Louis, and across the nation.

'The Blues Highway', featuring St. Louis Blues - and the Fab Foehners




"The Blues in the Schools program conducted by Dave Beardsley was a 'Train the Trainer' workshop for our Southern CORE Conference. Dave encompassed several disciplines in his presentation, from history to geography, and used Blues music to take the viewer on a timeline from the late 1800's up to today. Educational and entertaining!"
