About the Artists and the Schedule
           Friday, July 24 from 6 – 8 pm at Courthouse Square
           Kenny Neal
           Kenny Neal, born in New Orleans and raised in Baton Rouge, began playing music at a very
           young age, learning the basics from his father, singer and blues harmonica master, Raful
           Neal. Kenny is known as a modern swamp-blues master and multi-instrumentalist, that draws
           musically from the sizzling sounds of his native Louisiana. At age 13, he joined his father’s band
           and began paying his musical dues. Four years later, he was recruited and toured extensively as
           Buddy Guy’s bass player.
              Signing with Alligator Records in 1988, Kenny began releasing a series of consistently lauded
           albums featuring his laid-back, Baton Rouge blues, with a modern spin on the Louisiana sound
           he grew up with.
              After relocating to the Bay Area in 2004, Kenny began hosting his own local cable TV program,
           “Neal’s Place.” The show features Kenny jamming and talking with the many international blues
           stars he has met and performed with, as well as local artists he has spotted at festivals and clubs.
           Filmed in front of a live studio audience, “Neal’s Place” has a relaxed, informal atmosphere that brings
           out the best in the artists, while giving an unscripted, improvisational edge to the performances.

               After Party at: Deseo Tequila Lounge & Restaurant, 851 Main
               Street, Downtown Redwood City (FREE ADMISSION) featuring:

           Stan Erhart
           Stan has been performing in and around the San Francisco Bay Area for many years, with his
           own band, and with others. Previous to California, he made a living teaching and performing
           guitar & woodwinds in Chicago, Michigan, and Kansas City. Standards are high, and you’ll
           always hear fine musicians with the band. He and bassist Michael Warren (Merl Saunders, Leo
           Nocentelli) celebrate 11 years and hundreds of gigs together.
             The Bay Area has some of the best musicians in the world and great situations abound. Which
           hints that Stan has played with many of the top players in the area... at jam sessions and special
           events, lots of fun always... even more fun to gig with them. If you’re having trouble sleeping, you
           can peruse his historical calendar at

           DeBraun Thomas
           DeBraun Thomas got into music at a young age. His father, being a musician himself, had a
           strong influence on him. DeBraun picked up the guitar at the age of 14 and has been playing
           since. DeBraun plays a few different styles and blends them to create his own sound. He uses
           the influence of Rock, Funk, Blues, and Reggae to create his unique sound. He plays with much
           passion and emotion which comes through his music. His biggest influences include Eddie
           Hazel, Jimi Hendrix, John Coltrane, Yavuz Çetin, Stevie Ray Vaughan and many others. He is
           currently attending school at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, Kentucky and where he
           continues to write and record music.

           The Band: DeBraun Thomas, Sid Lofgren, Artis Joyce

           South City Blues Band
           The South City Blues Band is dedicated to the groove, providing you with a unique blend of
           swinging Jump Blues (our specialty), Jazz/Funk Blues, and “old-school” R&B. Whatever you want
           to call it, this music will get you up and moving. We play a variety of styles to keep it interesting,
           but our rhythm section keeps it in the pocket, and we never stray far from the source of our
           musical inspiration — the blues!

                             inspired guitar playing while backing up local greats such as The NiteCreepers and Jimmy

                             Oakland, CA. Playfully crossing genres from roots and blues to R&B and soul, The California
                             Honeydrops’ sound is tied together by their unique instrumentation, soulful vocal harmonies,
                             and a funky, good-times New Orleans style. The Honeydrops’ more unusual instruments include
                             a home-made gutbucket bass, jug, and washboard. Their greasy down-home rhythms are
                             punctuated by joyous blasts of trumpet, rollicking piano riffs, and passionate bluesy vocals. The
                             only band of its kind, The California Honeydrops’ live shows have quickly gained a reputation as
                             the best party in the Bay Area.

                             the West Coast, pianist SID MORRIS presents an exciting, unique brand of barrelhouse music.
                             Currently living in San Jose, Sid has been performing since 1970 and continues to be an active
                             member of the music community in the San Francisco Bay Area.
                                Raised in Houston, Texas before his family moved to the South Bay, Sid performed at the very
                             first San Francisco Blues Festival in 1973 and subsequently appeared at four other SF Blues
                             Festivals. During his early years on the scene, Sid was mentored by Alberto Gianquinto, the
                             brilliant San Francisco blues pianist who helped co-found the original James Cotton Blues Band.

                                                                                                     • Continues on page 9

                      has also become the “go to guy” sideman for such heavyweights as Elvin Bishop, Bonnie Raitt,
                      Charlie Musselwhite, Maria Muldaur, Howard Tate, Angela Strehli, Sista Monica, Shana Morrison
                      and many, many more. Oh yes…we may be judged by the company we keep, but when the
                      spotlight shines a solo artist also must be able to bring the goods all on his own.

                      “Mighty Mike Schermer is probably the best blues guitarist, singer and songwriter you’ve
                      never heard of…and probably not for long!”
                      -Tommy Castro

                      “Every time I play with him my booty hurts afterwards from him kicking it all night!”
                      -Elvin Bishop

                      “Funky and authentic!” -Bonnie Raitt

                      The Madison Blues Band
                      The Madison Blues Band featuring Kerry Daly on vocals is a six piece Chicago and Texas style
                      blues band mixing upbeat dance tunes with soft torch ballads. They cover the spectrum of blues
                      by the original artists- from Magic Sam to Bonnie Raitt adding their own sparkle gets their fans
                      up and dancing.
                        The Madison Blues Band has shared the stage with such notable blues legends as Jimmy Thackery
                      and the Drivers, Louisiana Red, Kenny Neal, Magic Slim and the Teardrops, and Lazy Lester.
                        This band of local musicians has built up a loyal fan base by playing in local city concert
                      series and well known festivals. The Madison Blues Band is proud to have participated in many
                      charitable events for such groups as The American Cancer Society, Festiv Italiano, Agnew State
                      Hospital, NCEFT in Woodside, and The Redwood City Police Activities League.
                        The Madison Blues Band plays the blues for the sheer love of the music, which is evident every
                      time we perform. Their mission is to help preserve and promote this uniquely American music
                      and to present it to our community with as much energy and excitement as possible!
                        The Madison Blues Band features Blues songs sung by many of the great female vocalists of
                      our time. Bonnie Raitt, Marcia Ball, Lou Ann Barton and Angela Strehli to name a few. Credible
                      Blues comes from the heart and soul and can not be fabricated. It’s more than a feeling, it is
                      a state of mind and an attitude. Kerry Daly, vocalist, came to the Madison Blues Band on a
                      reputation of being genuine and sincere and able to present her gift in a honest and real manner.
                      As the voice and face of the band, she too matches the genuine and humorous tone. Her raw
                      and earthy Blues tones are equally balanced by her soft and sweet ballads.

                      The Band: Madison Sink, Dave Bogart, Kerry Daly Pelsma, Bryan Lujan, Mark Del Bono and
