Steve Arredondo RIP

From Bob Corritore

  • RIP Steve Arredondo, July 12, 1952 - July 30, 2010. Steve Arrendondo was a San Diego based blues harmonica player who was active with both BLUSD (Blues Lovers United of San Diego), and the Paul Butterfield Fund and Society. He passed away from complication of cancer on July 30th at age 57. Though not well known outside of his region, he was a positive and supportive force for the blues in all of his dealings. To read a loving obituary posted by his children, click here. We are not aware of any recordings by Steve, but any harmonica player who has appeared in San Diego, would have likely met Steve, who would would frequent such occasions with sincere interest and an outreached hand. Chet Cannon has helped to organize a San Diego memorial show for Steve that happens this Sunday, August 15th, at Tango Del Rey. For more information on this event click here.
