I just posted up a few shows on the calendar. Primarily acts that I knew and followed back in the eighties – a long time ago. Johnny Winter is an amazing guitar player who has history with Hendrix and later Muddy Waters and who has been making music through out. I was hooked on his Still Alive and Well”. This January he is playing 3 gigs over at BB Kings on west 42nd Street.
I also just posted a gig for Paul Di’anno. Di’anno was the original vocalist for Iron Maiden. He is the vocalist on their second album, Killers, which I was always impressed by. I am not sure what the situation was but he has avoided the US for awhile. I almost wonder if Di’anno, an Englishman had an issue with US Immigration services. I recall seeing a year or two ago him doing Mexico, and then going right up to Canada. Who knows. This year, however, he is playing the US and he is up at the Chance Theater in Poughkeepsie and again BB Kings!
Lastly. I posted up a Robert Gordon show. He does a bit of Elvis, a bit of rockabilly with a dash of NYC punk. Again at BB Kings. I have seen him every few years, well there was a very big gap – basically the 90s. The times I have seen him he has not disappointed.
So anyway, a handful of shows I felt where worth checking out, all featuring artist that have I have seen over the years, and they are still at it. Longevity is a good thing. It might be 2010 but I still got my favs, so why not share them.
