For first timers to SPAH, if you enjoy the blues this is a true bucket
list type of event.
As previously noted, John Nemeth will host the blowoff. John is in demand
on the festival circuit, he has tour obligations and won't be able to
attend the convention... this is the only spot you'll be able to see him in St
Louis. Come early, he goes on 'first' at 7:25pm, and then serves as
emcee. The excellent house band, The St Louis Social Club, might start as early
as 7pm... by all accounts comprised of a who's who of the St Louis blues
Here's the first half of the lineup:
John Nemeth - Currently nominated for Soul Blues Album of the Year and
Male Blues Artist of the Year!
Steve Baker - From Germany, representing Hohner Harmonica and a regular
contributor to this list.
Then... in the interest of the 'Preservation' in SPAH, a traditional
harmonica trio consisting of George Miklas, Phil Caltabellotta, and Herb Eck.
The non-SPAH portion of the audience will flip when many for the first time
see the giant sized chord harp flying around.
Winslow Yerxa (the SPAH Prez) will say some words about SPAH and strut his
stuff for a song or two.
Koei Tanaka - Hailing all the way from Japan, representing Suzuki
Joe Filisko & Eric Noden... with very special guest from the heart of the
Cajun country, Jerry Devillier!
Just to keep it interesting I'll wait until next week to announce the
second half. As a teaser, I'll say that for the first time the pre-SPAH
blowoff will include a dedicated Youth Showcase segment... these young guns are
going to knock your sox off! The $15 cover set by the house is slightly
more than anticipated, but it is an amazing bargain for his lineup.
Still no free transportation options but I haven't given up on seeking
something out. Once again, please chime in if you are local and think you can
