On a personnel note, long-time drummer Jim Alvey is moving into semi-retirement (if there is such a thing in a blues band). He will continue to play at the monthly Open Mics and will fill-in once in a while, too. Meanwhile, Dave, Tad, and Bonanza have been doing a great job of keeping the blues beat going.
