Benefit for local musician- Joe Maniscalco

I first met Joe Maniscalco when I joined the folk group at Holy Trinity in Norfolk VA in the mid 1970’s . He was a great mentor , musician and friend.

It was saddening to hear of his recent illness.

Friends of Joe’ will hold a fundraising event entitled, ‘Benefit for Joe Maniscalco – Let’s Keep the Music Playing’ on January 31, 2010.  It will take place at Knuckleheads Roadhouse on 401 North Witchduck Road in Virginia Beach from 1:00 p.m. to 9 p.m. The public is invited .

Gloucester VA Blues Band’ Planet Full of Blues

Gloucester’s Planet Full of Blues has released a self-titled, 11-song album that is just plain smokin’ hot. Fans of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s blazin’ guitar licks should take note.

Clad in dapper black suits, hats and shades, guitarist/singer Johnny Ray Light and drummer Brock Howe – the main ingredients in Planet – have a decidedly Blues Brothers shtick goin’ on, and they’ve got the groove to back it up.

“Got the Blues” is an infectious dance track featuring the Hammond B3 organ work of guest Paul Draper, with loads of lightning-quick six-string injections from Light.

The title track and “Pain Will Melt Away” are highlighted nicely with the horn power of saxophonist Richard Yeager and trumpeter Eric Stark. “Miss Her Smile” and “Coming From a Friend” rock in a more subdued, Eric Clapton sort of way.

The band plans to tour Europe in the summer, with a June 27 slot at the Voxstock Festival in Belgrade confirmed.
