  • Big Pete Pearson & The Rhythm Room All-Stars appear this Friday and Saturday, March 7-8, 2008 at the Rhythm Room in Phoenix! Every time that Big Pete and the All-Stars play at their home base, it is a special party. Please join them for two nights of pure, old-school blues and rowdiness. The Rhythm Room is located at 1019 E. Indian School Road, Phoenix, AZ 85014. Doors open at 8pm, cover charge is $7. Rack Shack Barbeque will be available at these events. These nights will be patio smoking only events; no indoor smoking will be permitted.
  • More Blues in the Movies: Regarding our "Blues In The Movies" spotlight, Mary Flynn (blues radio host on WPR in Wisconsin and the wife of Billy Flynn) writes: "A movie is in development right now called Cadillac Blues, the story of Leonard Chess. Beyoncé Knowles is executive producer, as well as playing the part of Etta James. Adrien Brody will star as Leonard Chess, Jeffrey Wright as Muddy, Cedric the Entertainer as Willie Dixon, and Columbus Short as Little Walter. A lot of good music should come out of this, as well as renewed exposure to a whole generation!" Thanks for this information, Mary! Check out these links (link one, link two) for more info on Cadillac Blues.
