Moon, Tune, June...

Last Friday's gig at Alternative Brews (one of Western New York's premier Blues & Roots venues) was our last for awhile-- the end of a 6-month stint as one of Alt-Brews' monthly house bands. We hope you made it out (it was a great time), and we hope to see you back there in the Fall. Paul (Alt-Brews owner and entertainment impressario) uses the Summer months to try out new bands, so if you visit Alternative Brews frequently, you'll be seeing some new faces over the next few months.

Congratulations go out to Paul and family, and to all of the Alt-Brews staff for a fantastic 11 years. God Bless, Good Blues, and may you have many, many more!

We just found out that J.J. and his group will be appearing at a bluesfest in Lansing, Michigan, and have booked some club dates there as well, so look out, Detroit, J.J. The Jet Plane is making a musical straffing run, and ya'll will never be the same! You can also dig J.J.'s soulful vocal stylings on (former No-Star) Jack Prybylski's latest CD (available at
