Local Music News

The busy singer will headline the Ojai Blues Festival May 7, as well as appearing at Gator By the Bay May 13 and 14 and Doheny Blues Fest on May 20. In addition, "We'll be playing in Las Vegas at the Big Blues Bender at the Plaza Hotel, and we're planning to head up to the Pacific Northwest to Seattle and back."

Billy Shaddox

His upcoming album Record Keeper (due via Leesta Vall Recordings in Brooklyn, NYC) is preceded by a single for "Saint Vrain" b/w "Learn to Sink." "These songs were recorded and produced by me at my home studio the Gulch," says Shaddox.

Eddie Vedder

Ratt

This week's newest Ratt lineup features three off-and-on members - Stephen Pearcy, Warren DeMartini, and Juan Croucier - now backed by Carlos Cavazo and with Thin Lizzy/Black Star Riders drummer Jimmy DeGrasso replacing the increasingly litigious Bobby Blotzer.

Greg Douglass

"Just booked a month-long tour in the UK next January with my Steve Miller tribute band, the Pompatous of Love, doing theaters," Douglass tells the Reader. "A tribute band with an original member in it is an easy sell, especially across the pond."
