Blues News From Portsmouth - April 2008

Welcome to this month news letter, lot's of different types of news this
month. So I'd best get started.

*Burnt Ice*

After 15 years solid of playing sax for us, Della Perrett has decided it's
time to move on from Burnt Ice. This will allow her to concentrate on her
other musical projects, cheif among which is 'Della Perrett's Sweetedge',
her band which features her original songs. 15 years is a pretty solid
stint for any band so well done Della! 

You catch the next performance of Sweetedge at the R.M.A. Tavern on 
Saturday May 31st. 

*Rocks And Gravel*

We just got a great CD review in "Blues Matters" magazine. 

"Interpretations and instrumentation are spot on, there's some really nice
playing here".

"Their overall sound is about as close to authentic as three white guys from
the south of Engkand can be expected to get ..."

*IAC Music Charts*

My song 'Pretty Nose' just made another jump in the Blues Genre Charts at and has reached no 18! That puts it on the first page,
definetely the place to be :-) Thanks to all of you that listened. 

Hear it here:
