Send Dick Deluxe to Memphis

New Orleans Blues Society Benefit Party/Jam Session
January 19th
5-8PM
BMAC's Courtyard

Help Send Dick Deluxe to Memphis!

On Oct 28th I had the good fortune to win the International Blues Challenge solo/duo competition for the New Orleans Blues Society. I'll be going to Memphis January 22-27 for the finals competing against other blues artists from around the USA and many other countries.

To help defray the travel, lodging and other expenses I am seeking sponsors. All donations will help
but I've put together a “package” of goodies for those who contribute $100 or more

The package includes
A copy of “Turning 61 on Highway 61”, my 2017 all original record that was an Offbeat Album of the Year nominee/
autographed 11 x 17 color poster
and my undying gratitude!

One of my expenses will be to record the set of all original songs I will be performing live in Memphis.

I will do a limited, custom release to sponsors featuring the live set plus personally curated selections from my catalog of songs (released and unreleased!) Each CD will be a unique and will include an insert with the names and business logo's of the sponsors.

Contact me via PM or at dickdeluxe53@gmail.com to be a sponsor!...

About Us

Little Freddie King @ d.b.a

image30


If you want the real blues  - baby, you'd better call Little Freddie King,  The minute Freddie straps on his guitar and strikes up his gnarled chord and drummer "Wacko" Wade makes his presence known with a definative cymbal crash, this lean, mean, swampy aggregation of gut-bucket wild men transforms the poshest of venues into a back-of-town beer joint.

Joe Krown Trio @ Dos Jefes

image31

Piano man and organ wizard Krown leads this tough as nails band through classic hammond B-3 driven funk, blues and R&B grooves. But Krown is a prolific and engaging composer too, and original burners like "Mud Flaps" on the Organ Combo's most recent CD, Funkyard show this formidable ensemble bringing their own musical recipes to the table. --Scott Jordan
