OMG! There is just so much scrumptiousness crammed into this week’s Digital Blues on Gateway 97.8 with music new and not so new, two birthdays, the gig guide and a couple of tracks from contestants in this year’s European Blues Challenge.

Russia’s EBC reps Bomb Lane Blues Band open the show followed by the UK’s David Migden & the Twisted Roots with track from their brand new CD. Also new or newish are tracks from LaVendore Rogue, The Trevor Sewell Band, the Nick Moss Band, Kim Simmonds & Savoy Brown, the Climax Blues Band, Adrianna Marie & Her Groovecutters, Sunday Wilde, Sena Ehrhardt, Debbie Bond & the Trudats, Deb Ryder, JJ Thames, Kyla Brox, Malaya Blue, Mick Simpson, Robert Cray Band, Matt Andersen, Tommy Castro & the Pain Killers, Thorbjorn Risager & the Black Tornado and Sugar Brown.

Slices of birthday cake go to J B Lenoir and Tommy Tucker whilst in the gig guide are Bad Influence and Connie Lush. Top top off this very much lady dominated edition is a belter from Rae Gordon.
