Wow! It is hot here in Central New York - in more ways than one! RSB is busy with some really great shows. We've been invited to play the Quebec City Summer Music Festival on July 12. This is Canada's largest music fest attended by 1.5 million people over eleven days! There's hundreds of acts, including Arrowsmith and Bon Jovi. We're excited and proud to be apart of this huge event. We then drive back home the next day to play our favorite club, Shifty's, that night. We'll be runnin' on adreniline and pumped to play for our fans in the 'Cuse. The next day we showcase our originals at the NYS Rhythm & Blues Fest in Clinton Square @ 3:15pm! I'm tired just thinkin' about it, but excited as hell to represent the 'Cuse in the fests 21st year! We'll be joined by the "unofficial" fifth member of RSB, our good friend, Dan "Cato" Eaton on keys & sax! it's always a blast when Cato plays with us. Also, I'll be inducting my good friend and mentor & rock & roll legend, Jimmy Cavallo, into the CNY Blues Archives Hall Of Fame, right before his set at 2pm. Latter that night Cato & I will be joing Bernie Clark over at the Wescott Theater as part of the festivals "club crawl" series. Four gigs in three days in two different countries.....I better start taking my vitamins NOW!
