Jammin’ the Blues

If you’re a fan of roots-music – especially the blues – you may want to check out a fairly new organization on the Nippertown music scene – the Capital Region Blues Network.

According to their website, “The Capital Region Blues Network is an all-volunteer group of blues fans and musicians dedicated to providing, promoting, and preserving blues music in New York’s Capital Region.”

One of the events that the group has focused on is the continuation of the Sunday Night Jam at the Roadhouse Grille in Colonie. The YouTube video above features the Rhett Tyler Band performing at last Sunday’s session.

The weekly sessions take place at 8pm on Sundays, although due to the Super Bowl this coming Sunday, the Sunday Night Jam has been moved to 8pm on Friday, February 4. Stephen Smith will be hosting Friday’s jam, with special guests Denny Dwyer (guitar) and Ian Bennett (harmonica/sax) dropping by.
