*IS' FUN Y'ALL, BUT......-
crawlinkingsnake is stepping down as writer, researcher, mis-speller,
chief cook and bottle washer of the BJFM "Blues Triangle" Update. Its been a
fun 4 years. Began this thing back in Oct 2004 when I shot my mouth off while
chattin with some folks out on the back porch... never dreamed it would create
the interest or last as long as it did. Really hope somebody will pick up the ball
and run with it from this day forward... but due to too-many-irons-in-the-fire,
this must happen. Not exactly sure just what's gonna go on in the future with
Update or crawlinkingsnake... will probably continue in some capacity with the
WVBluesSociety (as is happening right now) or as independent. So for now, if you
would like to continue to receive any future crawlinkingsnake bs, please contact
the West Virginia Blues Society website at

Thanks y'all for all the positive, negative and/or indifferent feedback in the
past... check out the WVBluesSociety "Mountains of Blues", continue to support
the Blues, Jazz & Folk Music Society of the Mid-Ohio Valley and ALL da blues

Chicago's Chico Banks Plays Marietta

The Blues, Jazz & Folk Music Society present their Second Annual "Chicago Blues
Party" on Friday, November 21, 2008 at The Lafayette Hotel, in downtown Marietta.
This year's featured performers will be The Chico Banks Blues Band with special
guest Toronzo Cannon from Chicago. The Chicago blues starts at 8:30pm, and
admission is $15 for BJFM Society members, $20 for non-members. All tickets
available at the door. No advance ticket sales for this show.

Chico Banks comes from a musical family; His dad and brother used to practice in
the basement when he was just a kid. Chico joined his first Top 40 band at the
age of 13, and before he knew it, he was backing Johnny Christian, along with
his brother. After Johnny, Chico played with Otis Clay, then moved on when he
got the chance to play with Buddy Guy for several tours. After that, he toured
with Junior Wells, and then James Cotton for three years. Over the next few years,
Chico played with almost everyone in Chicago, including Little Milton, Magic Slim,
Big Time Sarah and Tyronne Davis. In 1997, he hooked up with Mavis Staples, and
has done may tours throughout the world with Mavis, as well as The Staples Singers.

Special guest for the "Chicago Blues Party" will be Toronzo Cannon, who is a show
all by himself. Blues & Rhythm (UK) says: "Modern, loud and funky blues…one of
the striking new talents on the Chicago blues scene…Cannon dazzles with his guitar
playing." Since the release of Toronzo's latest album, My Woman, he has been
tearing up the stage and exciting crowds from Chicago to the Balkins. At the
core of Toronzo's appeal is his heartfelt love for the music, whether it is blues,
soul, gospel, jazz or rock – all of which may creep into his show, and his respect
for the audience. "If he doesn't leave them sweatin' and smilin' he feels he hasn't
done his job," said Banks
