Brandon Santini had the Blue Monday SRO crowd on their feet all night long June 29 at the Alamo. Santini and his band, Timo Arthur (guitar), Nick Hern (bass) & David Green (drums), laid down their Dirty, Back Alley, Memphis Blues all night. Joined by Jerry Lee Gingery (bass & vocals) during the 2nd set the night was One to Remember. Blues On and we'll see you "Further on Up the Road".

Mother Nature and her steadfastness with precipitation couldn't dampen the spirits of those at the Curve Inn Beer Garden Thursday evening, June 25th to hear Mary Jo Curry and Tombstone Bullet! The occasional lightning in the Southern Sky was no match for the energy of the music laid down by Micharl Rapier (guitar), Tim Bahn (keys), Mike Gillette (bass), Rich Olson (drums) and the emotion and fever of the vocals of Mary Jo Curry! The Internationally Acclaimed Blues guitarist, singer and songwriter James Armstrong joined in the fun during the 2nd set and the music blew the impending Storm Clouds Away! Blues On and we'll see you "Further on Up the Road".

The Daddy Mack Blues Band brought their Memphis Magic and lit up the Alamo with SOLID Blues from the first note struck on Mack Orr's guitar to the last! With Chieni on bass and veteran Charles Gage on the drum kit the Blues were pounding thru the airwaves of Downtown Springfield! "Daddy Mack" Orr invited James Armstrong to the stage with his six string and Susan Williams took over on bass for much of the 2nd set. After a fantastic jam James stepped away and Michael Rapier treated the Blue Monday crowd to some of his smooth, fluid guitar licks! All in all it was a fantastic night of Solid Blues!

"James Armstrong Presents @ the Alamo" welcomed the MojoCats to the "Sacred Stage" June 18 to the delight of the Thursday evening crowd! Local musicians "Bad Bill" Robinson, Adrian Muex and Jeremy Kimbler joined the MojoCats during the 2nd set and an Amazing JAM Began thrilling the woundup, foot stomping crowd!

Thanks to Doug Deming and the Jeweltones (Andrew Gohman & Devin Neel) Featuring Dennis Gruenling for an amazing show at our Blue Monday on June 15th! Local "Sax Man" David Alexander joined in during the 2nd set and had the crowd howling for more! Looking forward to seeing you again!

Ghost Town Blues Band played a killer show at the Alamo for Blue Monday on June 8! The "Killer Blues Band" from Memphis, TN invited Shay Logan to jam with them after their 1st set break and Shay didn't let her "Hometown Fans" down!

The June 4 "James Armstrong Presents @ the Alamo" was something to behold as Luca Giordano, Quique Gomez, Felix Reyes and Marty Binder meshed European & Chicago Blues into one boiling explosion! Two nights later, June 6 at Thirdbase Sports Bar, Luca, Quique, Felix and Marty put on another stellar Blues Show and later in the evening welcomed Michael Rapier and Mary Jo Curry of Tombstone Bullet to join them on stage.
