Welcome to the new chandlerbluesband.com!
Greetings! I’d like to welcome everyone to the blog and to the new chandlerbluesband.com! Its been a long time coming and thank you to everyone who’s been tuning into our facebook for all our updates over the past year. Here you’ll be able to follow our calendar for upcoming shows, see some of our favorite pics, get all the latest CBB news, recordings, and follow us on our blog for any and all of our nonsensical ramblings. You can subscribe via email on the bottom of this page.
I’ll start off with a HUGE thank you from all of us to everyone making it out to our shows and dancing their butts off this past year. It means so much to us to have you all brave the harsh winter weather, the summer heat, traffic, crowds, and/or sacrifice sleep to come and enjoy what we do. We love you all so much and are excited for everything that’s to come.
secondly, we’re excited to share the news that we’ve been nominated for “Best Live Band or Musician” by the Best of The Vineyard. So if you haven’t already, please take a moment to vote for us as it means a lot to these five blues bums. You can vote here.
In other news, we’ve signed on with The Ritz to be their resident Thursday night band from July-October of 2015. So this summer please come see us any and every Thursday night. We have some other summer gigs in the works such as bi-weekly Tuesday night shows in Edgartown at The Port Hunter. We’re also playing a 45 minute set on Wednesday, April 1st at the first annual Fool’s Ball at The Ritz in OB. Its a benefit to support the upcoming MV Sound Festival brought to you by island-based TPS Productions. We’re excited to share the bill with our friends The Mike Benjamin Band, members of DCLA, DJ Rastoe, and DJ WEP to support the local music festival on Martha’s Vineyard. Something from which our island community benefits so much. And we’ll also be back at The Ritz on April 4th for a full CBB show. Stay tuned to the blog and our calendar for more info on shows as it develops.
Lastly, we’re SO excited to say that we’ve been spending these cold winter nights recording an EP at our friend Electric Pie’s studio in Oak Bluffs. You may have caught an Electric Pie show around the island last summer and if you haven’t, please do yourself a favor and keep an eye out for them. They are an amazing young original band and we’re fortunate enough to have them on our island. The EP will most likely be self titled and feature mostly, if not all, original recordings from The Chandler Blues Band.
Till next time, stay happy, stay bluesy everyone.
