CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

   WONDERFUL TRADITIONAL  
  1950'S BLUES FROM THE BAY AREA!   
 *** TIP OF THE TOP *** 


A RARE AND WELCOME APPEARANCE BY A FUN TRADITIONAL BLUES QUARTET FROM THE BAY AREA!

Who says the good old days of the blues are over? "This music isn't long gone; it's alive and happening right here and now in Northern California! " says blues guitar virtuoso Kid Andersen. He's talking about Tip of the Top, the San Francisco Bay Area band that has taken the blues scene by storm since 2009.

The band's musical style is reminiscent of the 1950's. Their live show delivers all the primitive pulsating rhythms, repetitive chord changes and gritty amplification that defines early American Rock 'n' Roll. But these bluesmen are no mere imitators. They feel this music to their core. They represent it with 100% authentic personal expression and deliver it with emotionally charged energy.

Tip of the Top's debut CD, Depot Street Blues, and their second release, Rock Tonight, received rave reviews from fans and blues critics alike. Their latest release From Memphis To Greaseland features some of the band's finest original work and their unique, spontaneous take on blues classics. Engineered and produced at the world-famous Greaseland Studios in Campbell, California, this album is a MUST HAVE for any serious blues afficionado!

Tip of the Top is:
Jon Lawton ("Little Jonny") - guitar/vocals
Frank De Rose - bass
Akarsha "Aki" Kumar - harp/vocals
Carlos Velasco - drums

 EXCITING BLUES-ROCK SINGER 
          DEBUTS IN TARZANA!          
 ** ALLISON AUGUST ** 
 ** & BOOTLEG HONEY ** 


Hot, talented, Los Angeles-based blues singer, Allison August, is our little surprise for you, and we guarantee you will be thrilled by her deep and soulful approach to the blues.  In fact, Allison stopped by The Sugar Mill a few months ago and completely blew everyone away when she sat it with the house band, so we begged her to come back, and thankfully she accepted!  This Monday she's returning with her own tight, searing electric band and is gonna completely rock the joint to it's foundation.  Don't miss her set, which will start exactly at 8 pm!  
We are really excited for this one!
