DarielB – Flying Under the Radar

South By Southeast Update

Posted in Live Performance Previews/Reviews by darielb on October 20, 2010

The big news, boys and girls, is that SxSE – my favorite nonprofit music organization – has finally received their 501 (c) (3) status. That means the I.R.S. formally recognizes them as a nonprofit organization and when you join or make a donation, you can declare it on your taxes. (Hey Jeff, we’re legal!)

Upcoming Shows (These will be SRO, so order your tickets yesterday!)

Dec. 4. The amazing Mike Farris brings his rockin’ gospel back to the Train Depot. Mike Farris has been part of the Delbert McClinton Cruise (and will again for 2011). He’s played Bonnaroo, SxSW, Austin City Limits. I’m here to tell you, he’ll take your breath away.







Guitarist Rev. Johnny Mac

Jan. 15, 2011. Johnny Mac & the BootyRanch. You may know the Rev. Dr. Johnny Mac from the Jumper Cables. Well the Booty Ranch – made up of Johnny on guitar and vocals, Chris “Mega” Watts on bass and vocals, and Stevie “Fatback” Kent on percussion and vocals – have been burning it up in Charleston since about 1998. The genre-jumping trio covers electric blues, R&B, funk, rock and swamp. Exciting stuff!






Randall Bramblett (Photo Jeff Jeffares)

March 5, 2011. Randall Bramblett Band. Can you hear me shouting my excitement?  Randall is one of my favorite songwriters ever, and his band blows the roof off the Depot every time. If this is a name you don’t know, Google it and see what you’ve been missing. Randall Bramblett brings together blues, jazz and rock like no one else does.

Visit  the South By Southeast website  for more information on these shows, and then shoot an email to southxsoutheast@aol.com to reserve your spot. You can always Trust the Frog.

    Jeff was one of the first people I met, when I moved here in 1990..Wandered into Sounds Familiar and was amazed at the vast array of music in that store..His knowledge was incredible and he was always willing to help find anything I might be seeking….Thanks for keeping his memory & spirit alive..Michael Markiewicz / The ReFried Blues

    Michael, I agree – Jeff was knowledgeable and helpful and kind. I miss him like crazy and I hate that he’s not here to hang and talk with. But I smile every time I walk into the Train Depot for another SxSE Music Feast. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment.
