DejaBlue Grass Band / Blind Boys of Alabama, Aug 24th, Eddie’s Attic – Decatur, GA

March 12, 2014

DjBGB w_Blind BoysSerendipity and a great friend brought the DejaBlue Grass Band to a party last Christmas attended by members of the legendary Blind Boys of Alabama.  We ended up doing a few tunes in the living room and had a blast singing for them. Before long Jimmy Carter and Ben Moore began chiming in and singing with us.  It was, to say the least, a surreal THRILL.   Yeah, making music with 5-Time Grammy award winning artists is not something we get to do very often.  It was pretty much the coolest Christmas present ever.

Well one thing led to another and, through the good work of said great friend, Mr. Kyle Caldwell, we are doing a show together!!!!  So let’s see…among many others, they’re played with Tom Waits, Solomon Burke, Michael Franti, Chrissie Hynde, Aaron Neville, Shelby Lynne, George Clinton, Ben Harper, Randy Travis, Bonnie RaittSusan Tedeschi, Jars of Clay, Charlie Musselwhite,  and as of August 24th, 2014, The DejaBlue Grass Band.  How crazy is that???  The Law of Attraction in action if I’ve ever seen it.

So…Mark your calendars for a special evening with the DejaBlue Grass Band and Ricky McKinnie and Jimmy Carter from The Blind Boys of Alabama live at Eddie’s Attic in Decatur. Sunday evening, August 24, 2014 to benefit Neighbor In Need (helping low-income elderly make emergency home repairs). Details forthcoming on tickets on our website and Facebook page.
Wait….WHAT?!?!??    Don’t wake us if this is all a dream, okay?
