The 2003 St. Charles Blues Festival

Musician at the St. Charles Blues Fest                                                            an from the St. CharSince I am working close to the St. Charles area, I figured I would venture out and see what was up with the blues fest this evening. What a perfect night it was for some good music and great atmosphere! I am attaching some pics from a few of the various performers of this years festival. It was great to see the Pennsylvania Slim Blues Band, the Blues Handle Band, and Mojo Syndrome. Pennsylvania Slim and his band are one of my favorite artists in St. Louis. They were the first band I ever got a chance to see live, and I have been hooked on this blues thing since then! They have two Cds out and a third one is one the way, possibly slated for release early next year. These guys play regular around town and at BB's Jazz, Blues & Soups a few times a month. I am also pretty familiar with the Blues Handle Band. They play some originals tunes and cover songs all making for a great mix of blues sounds with a jumping atmosphere. Plus, they are certainly a nice bunch of characters. Also, the harp player does some amazing solos which helps the band fit together quite nicely. You can catch the Blues Handle Band at Bartman's Sports Bar & Grill on Sept 27th for their next live appearance. The last band I caught was Mojo Syndrome. I have seen these fellas perform a few times in the past and enjoyed their bluesy style. With Eric Mcspadden on harp and Larry Griffen on guitar, you just can't go wrong with this combo. I hope everyone enjoys our local blues talent as much as I do, and I encourage you to get out and support St. Louis musicians as much as possible! Enjoy the pics everyone!
