August 11

Hi gang!

Many thanks to Sam Romano and Tony Koussa for hosting Open Mic at The O for me last week while I was on vacation!

I took a motorcycle trip to Sturgis, South Dakota with eight other riders. From July 31 to August 9, we covered 3,513 miles and 7 states (Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota & Wyoming) in 10 days. I was not overly impressed with the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally itself, but the scenery was breathtaking. It was definitely an amazing experience. :c)

Here’s what’s coming up this week…

Monday: I’ll host the Cleveland Music Club Open Mic at The Oriole Cafe’ (294 N. Rocky River Dr., Berea, 7-10pm)! This week’s guest host is Dwayne Dickman! We’ll provide the PA and a short host set, the rest is up to you! Come join us and show off your acoustic/vocal chops or just hang out and enjoy the music, great food and frosty cold drinks!

Saturday: Shady Drive and the North Coast Horns appear at the Valley City Street Fair from 7-11pm! As always, you can pick up a copy of Shady Drive’s CD, “Darker Shade Of Blue” at all of our live shows, on Amazon, CDBaby or iTunes! You can hear us often, along with other blues artists on WCSB-FM Mondays at 9pm and on BluesMusicFan.com!

That’s all for now.  We’ll talk soon…

Mike :c)
