GREETINGS MUSIC FANS:
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!! Welcome to the July edition of Rockin’ The Blues On Two Wheels News!
I am very excited to announce the October, 2013 release of my new album Hands On The Wheel! It will be on sale through a very cool European record company Music Avenue/Blues Boulevard Records. The have a great catalog of albums from Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker and Elvin Bishop plus new artists with hot new albums! I am very excited to have them sell and promote my record worldwide! They are based in Europe, so the band hopes to perform shows there for the first time next year. Nothing is booked yet, however we are reaching out to festivals at this time. Will keep you posted.
“Your song is trending!” That is the email from Reverbnation I have received five weeks in a row for my new single “The Road Back To You”! The song is really getting a lot of attention and plays. It’s included on the Blues Magic album with another song that radio is playing: “Sugar Sweet”! “The Road Back To You” is is a blues/rock guitar-heavy track, mixed and mastered by talented engineer Kris Hawkins.
A shout out thank you to Noel Casey for playing Blues Magic on his hot radio show in Dublin, Ireland, called “After Midnight.” It is live on Monday nights at Dublin City FM 103.2 www.dublincityfm.ie.
Let’s meet up at a show in July! Here is where the band will be near you:

We will be playing Rockin’ Blues and joining in on the celebration, plus there will be a bike parade and BBQ. Arden Park is located at 1000 La Sierra Drive in Sacramento.
On Saturday afternoon, July 6, we will be in the big redwoods of beautiful Westwood, California, for the Paul Bunyan Mountain Blues Music Festival! This festival is lots of fun with cool events and good food. We will be Bluzin from 2 PM to 5 PM. Held at the Community Park in town, this is an awesome location for a good time. The surprise will be that Tumbleweed will be the special guest with the band! Tumbleweed is just about the best Blues harp player in California and he will have everybody dancing!
We will be back in our town for our Eagle Mountain Casino shows on Friday & Saturday, July 12 & 13. The dance floor in the Summit Room is excellent with non-stop moves on the dance floor for this crowd. We provide the big beat with Blues Magic and the party is on! Dinner, gaming and fun!
