Hi Blues Fans!

As I write this, it’s 70 degrees outside! It’s amazing, but it’s not going to last, colder weather moves in tomorrow with wind. UGH!

I want to thank those who donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Walk. We had a great turnout and I believe my team raised $1,000 to go to much needed research, so thank you!

We are 59 days away… holy cow! Now the sleepless nights begin! What did I forget? What is left to do?

If you haven’t gotten your ticket, why? Seriously why can’t you attend this year? We have the most incredible lineup ever!

We have Friday only tickets, Saturday only tickets – or the better deal the 2 day GA tickets. As I’m writing this we have a few VIP tickets left – that is a two day ticket.

And if you have your ticket, then tell your friends to join you!!!

Okay… onto Jeremiah Johnson Band

Born and raised in St. Louis, Jeremiah Johnson is the voice of Mississippi River blues blending with the struggles of everyday life.  He began learning guitar at age 6, drawing inspiration from his rich St. Louis blues heritage and legendary guitarists, like Alvin Lee, Eric Clapton and Hank Williams Sr. and Jr.  With these influences, Johnson began building his musical foundation.

In 2011, Johnson was the proud winner of the St. Louis Blues Society IBC Challenge and went on to the semifinals to represent St. Louis in Memphis, TN.  One year later, Sirius XM’s B.B. King’s Bluesville picked up the Jeremiah Johnson Band, where they can be heard nationwide, and they have been playing his music ever since.

2014 Johnson records Grind, produced by Devon Allman, features Grammy award winner Yonrico Scott on drums.  Grind has been featured on SiriusXM’s B.B. King’s Bluesville, and on the international radio show “Confessing the Blues”, broadcasting on 50 stations in 10 countries worldwide.
After signing a record deal with Ruf Records in March of 2018, Jeremiah immediately went to Texas to record his debut Ruf Records release, Straitjacket, with BMA award winning Mike Zito producing.  Straitjacket debuted #1 on iTunes New Blues Releases and #6 on Billboard Blues Album Chart and has been in the top of the Roots Music Report ever since.

You can catch Jeremiah on Saturday June 8th at 3:15 pm.

Have a great week!
