Hey Bluesers, Blueseresses and Blueser Chillins

Hope you all having a great New Year so far.
But New Year's resolutions are over so lets start smoking and drinking again and get on with the important stuff........
like what is happening with Boulevard Blues this month.

The Long Awaited new BB T-shirt is available at all gigs.
If you are small or triple X rated we've got a size for you.......and it looks good.

Well It's gonna be a new look Boulevard Blues.....
After many many years of faithful service Dale Collins has decided to leave BB and continue his musical journey on a different road.
We wish Dale all the best for the future and hope that whatever he does it is with much success.
Maybe there is a Dale Collins solo project on the cards.........mmmmmmmm....????
If there is we will let you know.
Dale is irreplaceable so as a band we have decided to continue as a 5 piece with the same energy and commitment to spreading the blues as before.

Already Richard Pryor has had to dig a bit deeper and you can now catch him playing a Strat....yes a Strat at the electric gigs ...and an acoustic Ovation guitar for the acoustic gigs..........It looks like he may have to bring up to 3 guitars to gigs in future so donations to the Richard Pryor Guitar Fund are welcome...he he he.
Also on the subject of Lead Guitarists
Richard Pryor has his own Rock Project on the go at
So if you are from the rockier side of life then request a Pebbleman CD as they will be on sale at all BB gigs

Yip!....It could be time to purchase that Blues shampoo,

Main ingredient in Blues shampoo is Jägermeister so mohicans could be the end result................Okay Okay time to move.
