FUNDRAISER FOR SOUTHWEST BLUES MAGAZINE

For those of you who do not know, Southwest Blues Magazine is owned, managed, edited, and published by one awe-inspiring woman, Joanna Iz. For 10 years now she has made sure Southwest Blues has kept you in the know with all the blues news you can use.

As you can imagine, it's no small task to keep a magazine coming out month after month. And it's not cheap either. It's free to you, the general public, but there are lots of costs associated with keeping it alive. (Not to mention blood, sweat and tears!)

So this Sunday, March 11, please join me in supporting Southwest Blues Magazine by attending the fundraiser taking place at Poor David's Pub , located at 1313 S. Lamar in Dallas - 214-565-1295. Cover charge is just $15 and gets you in to see an amazing array of blues royalty on stage for this special night - Smokin' Joe Kubeck, Bnois King, Anson Funderburgh, Hash Brown, Wanda King, Chris Ruest and Kirby Kelly.

My educated guess is that the celebrities in the audience will actually out number the ones on stage - all the local musicians love Joanna and SWB and will be out in full force showing their support. I say it all the time, but we have such a fabulous blues scene here in the DFW area, and that it due to a number of things: the plethora of Blueswomen and Bluesmen who make the DFW area their home, KNON's blues programming and Southwest Blues Magazines coverage of the musicians and events. Most of all, you, the Blues loving audience. Without you, there is no need for any of us.

So, if like me, you eagerly await the new issue of Southwest Blues Magazine every month, can't wait to see who made the cover, read the stories and reviews, check out the calendar to see who's playing where, try to master the licks in Jackie Don's monthly guitar column and love the fact that we have such a cool magazine in the local area, join me at Poor David's Pub this Sunday, March 11.
