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!

Dave Widow and The Lineup at Cafe Cordiale' - Sunday,Nov. 6

Performs Locally: Dave Widow & The Lineup at Cafe Cordiale' - Sunday,Nov. 6

Dave Widow is a guitarist-singer-songwriter from Cincinnati, Ohio currently living in the Los Angeles area. He and his band, "The Line Up", have appeared on a regular basis at such L.A. venues as The Langham, The Mint, Café Boogaloo, The House Of Blues, B. B. King's Blues Club, and The Lighthouse, as well as venues all across America, and abroad.

Dave Widow & The Line Up make a special appearance in the San Fernanado Valley at Cafe Cordiale, 14015 Ventura Blvd., Sherman Oaks, Sunday, November 6, from 8:30-11 p.m. No cover; info: (818) 789-1985 or Performing that evening in Widow's band are renowned drummer Gary Mallaber (known for his work with Bonnie Raitt, Van Morrison and Steve Miller Band among others); bassist Ray Brundidge (James Brown); keyboardist-vocalist David Morgan (Jim Messina, Ricky Nelson); and other special guests.

Watch a live performance by Dave Widow and the Line Up (along with special guest Bill Champlin) of "Don't You Lie To Me" here:

With his unique style of finger picking and distinct vocals, Widow brings a fresh approach to the Blues, while also combining elements of R&B, Funk, Soul and Rock. His musical style is influenced by his relationship with many great blues and R&B talents, including Buddy Miles, Bonnie Bramlett, Bill Champlain, Lonnie Mack, and his mentor and collaborator (the late) Roger "Jellyroll" Troy, bassist and vocalist for The Mike Bloomfield Band.

Widow is excited about his new material on his upcoming CD. "One of my new songs is called, "What Did I Do, To Piss You Off, This Time"...that needs little explanation, I think....there's also "Picture Of You," a melancholy song about remembering a lost love, via an old photo I found, on a rainy afternoon, and it's an Americana/dreamy-sort of tune..."Leave A Piece Of Me" was written about an old girlfriend who broke my heart."

As for the future? "I would like to be more well known, obviously, performing at concerts, and associated with a known record label, making CD's, or whatever medium is current at that time, still writing songs, collaborating on tunes with other writers and artists, and producing some other artists as well. I like to work on other artist's music, and help bring other artists ideas to fruition."
