CONGRATULATIONS to the Cincy Blues Society for staging the wildly successful MAINSTRASSE WINTER BLUES FEST- SATURDAY, JANUARY 21st in Covington, KY- ten bands in nine establishments, with each club packed to the rafters and lines out the door- WOW!!! Proceeds went to benefit the Blues Society's "Blues in the Schools" program...I get the feeling this will happen again! Here's who played:

John Redell & the Company He Keeps @ Cock & Bull H-Bomb Ferguson & the Medicine Men @ Pachinko The Vaporizers with Mike Tucker @ Mulligan's II Juicy @ Cock & Bull

Chris Carero's Newport Trio @ Village Pub Ricky Nye & the Swingin' Mudbugs featuring guitarist Dave Haley @ Cosmo's Sweet Alice Hoskins & Unfinished Business @ ZaZou Cheryl Renee & Mr. Keith Little @ Fat Shannon's Phil Blank Blues Band @ Zola's The Sonny Moorman Group @ Strasse Haus

...and thanks to all the establishments not accustomed to having live entertainment for being so Mainstrasse and live music!!!
