Fog City Blues - Five Years on KALW!

Fog City Blues has been heard on KALW for five years this month.  Come celebrate 5 years of blues on your local public radio station with a night of live music from some great friends of the show.

Join Tin Cup Serenade, Panique Gypsy Jazz, the Quinn DeVeaux Trio, and your host, Devon Strolovitch, at Viracocha in the Mission District of San Francisco on Thursday May 17th @ 8 pm. Tickets $8-20 sliding scale.

Since 2007, FOG CITY BLUES has been the weekly radio digest of blues in the Bay Area and beyond, every Wednesday 9-11 pm on KALW 91.7 FM.

TIN CUP SERENADE Shifting between Jazz, Blues, Calypso, weepy Westerns, Mariachi, Noir, Car Chases, Soap Operas, Suicidal diaries, death defying leaps into the musical void, Tin Cup Serenade have a timeless sound all their own. Tragic songs of hope, hopeful songs of
tragedy.

PANIQUE specializes in Django Renhardt's "gypsy jazz" music of the 1930s and 1940s. Think soundtracks to Woody Allen flicks, Parisian cafes, and a surprising amount of basic cable television commercials. They also like playing other stuff, like Bon Jovi, Chopin, video game music, and Metallica... if the mood calls for it.

QUINN DEVEAUX is an American songwriter and musician specializing in a style he calls Blue Beat Dance music. Once he realized you could write a thoughtful lyric with a back beat and people would dance to it he was hooked. He has made it his life's goal to capture the sweet deep grooves and catchy dance rhythms from the soul, gospel and early rock and roll era.
