~ Blues Sunday June 2, 2019: The Chris O'Leary Band ~
Keb’ Mo’ has just sent this to Barbara Newman (the 'woman in charge ' of Blues Foundation")You might have seen it on social media, but in case you have not, she invited us to share. This song has been recorded and this video created as a stand-alone piece of music. There is not a current plan for it to be included on a future CD. This has been released solely to be shared and enjoyed.
Lipbone played to a full room of very enthusiastic listeners for the February 10th 2019 Charlotte Blues Society Blues Sunday Bash.
The following day he participated in a CBS sponsored Blues in the Schools program at Northwest School of the Arts in Charlotte
Vanessa Rocked the stage, fired up the crowd, sang her heart out and played some pretty mean sax while we hung out on the lawn and chilled on a nice Friday evening at the Whitewater Center. Highly recommend you catch her whenever she is nearby.
We have a couple of her CDs which will be raffled off in December.
Davy has become a favorite for most of us at CBS. You could say we are somewhat obsessive. Solid reasoning for it: If you like Rory Gallagher, you will love Davy. He grew up listening to Rory, and Gallagher was his musical hero. He has opened for Chickenfoot, played River Jam at USNWC, and did dream gigs while touring with Rory's band in 2018. One of the best Blues/Rock/Roots artists today.

This video was produced in 2013 by graduate students at University of North Carolina Charlotte.
This Short Film was created by fans of the Double Door through a crowd funding event when it was announced that the building would be torn down to make way for a parking lot.
The Double Door Inn was the 2nd oldest Blues Club in the US until it closed it's door January 2, 2017. It was home to Charlotte Blues Society since 1993.
A nostalgic look at a landmark that was the place to go for live music for over 46 years in Charlotte.
