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!

Kimberly Allison Band, CIRCA (Ex-Yes Members) To Rock The Joint In West L.A. This Saturday

Ok... start the video, close your eyes and tell me what you hear... Steve Hunter... Ronnie Montrose ... Gary... no ... it's Kimberly Allison and she's about to collect!




*****MEDIA ALERT*****

WHO: Kimberly Allison Band in concert with CIRCA (featuring ex-Yes members Tony Kaye and Billy Sherwood)
WHERE: The Joint - 8771 W. Pico Blvd., Los Angeles - (310) 275-2619
WHEN: Saturday, August 11 - 8 p.m. Tickets $20.
WHAT ELSE: Highly-regarded Kimberly Allison is one of the most in-demand guitarists in the Los Angeles blues/rock/fusion music scene today. Allison - who is also a member of popular L.A. blues group, the Scorch Sisters - "wowed the Real Blues Festival 2 audience with her playing on opening uptempo shuffle "Blues For Barnaby" and a 'scorching' (excuse the pun) guitar solo on ballad "Still Remember," writes Casey Reagan from American Blues News. Allison has worked with saxophonist Joe Houston, singer Zola Moon, The Shirelles, and JJ "Bad Boy" Jones. Kimberly has toured the U.S. and Canada playing such venues such as the Portland Rose Festival, The Playboy Jazz Festival (Pasadena) and the Santa Monica Twilight Concert Series (sharing the stage with Roomful of Blues). In 1998, she was nominated in the "Outstanding Guitarist" category by the L.A. Music Awards. Kimberly's first solo CD, Old, New, Borrowed And Blues, received rave national revues and airplay as well as being picked up by national distributor, BDC. Kimberly is also an active educator with fifty-plus students a week.
Performing with Allison on Saturday night are Scorch Sisters keyboardist-vocalist, Alicia McCracken Morgan; Michael B. Holden on bass; and Art Mendoza on drums, with a very special appearance by Scorch Sisters dynamo lead vocalist, Francesca Capasso. Add rock royalty Tony Kaye and Billy Sherwood to the equation, and this promises to be a night of unforgettably great music!
