March Features Dave Gross and BITS with Ann Rabson, Reverend Raven and Madison Slim

The first week of March may be the biggest week in Crossroads Blues Society history. We are sponsoring our Spring BITS program and a show at Big Cities Lounge from March 6th through the 8th!

In our Spring BITS Program we find Ann Rabson, the queen of the blues piano, back for another year of programs. Ann will be performing at four schools on March 6 and 7. Milwaukee guitar slinger Reverend Raven and harmonica ace Madison Slim will also work on a day of programs and will perform with Ann on March 6.
If you like the blues and want to keep up with some of the newest and hottest acts in the blues then you need to go to Rockford, Illinois.

Rockford? Sure enough. On March 8th Big Cities and Crossroads Blues Society will be bringing the Dave Gross Band into town. Featuring Dave on guitar and vocals, Dennis Gruenling on harmonica, Doug Sasfai on tenor sax, Scot Hornick on upright bass and Michael Bram on drums, they are super band with a great new CD (see our last newsletter). Traveling with Dave and his band is another great newcomer, Gina Sicilia. Gina is a bright, 21 year old blues vocalist from the City of Brotherly Love (CD review in this issue). Hopefully Gina will be singing a few songs with Dave when he performs at Big Cities!

March is just going to be a great, great month! We hope to see a great member turnout!
