Update: Eric HollandsworthJacki B & the Backburners Responds
B O B,
Noticed a few visits to our website from the link on you Blog. We all found it pretty cool that we were noticed ....*grin*
You're correct in you assessment of what we are after... free downloads hoping that you will come on out to our gigs. Sort of our philosophy on music, the band and life in general. We don't do it for the money (although making a little is not a bad thing!) we do it for the enjoyment. All of us in Jacki B & the Backburners have been at this for over 20 years, and realized long ago that its about the music and the crowds... 'cause you aint gonna make much money doing it.......might as well do it for the crowds.
I think that if you like the recorded versions.. you will love the live versions. Come on out and check us out.
A bit of shameless self-promotion...... we will be competing in the James River Blues Society's Blues Talent Competition on July 9th at the Sedalia Center in Big Island, and we are the headliners for the Bedford Blues and BBQ Festival 2005 August 6th. Another Lynchburg Band (the Don't Quit Yer Day Job Blues Band) and Nelson County Teen phenom Eli Cook will also be performing that day.
We will be at Benjamin's on the 26th of Aug. Hopefully we will be in the Lynchburg area soon.
Thanks again for our blurb on your blog.
