Saturday, Jun 16, 2012 • Riverhead Blues Festival - Little Cliff, The Buzzards and Roomful of Blues • Not a SDLI Event

Posted by Tom on 05/23/2012 • Permalink

The Riverhead Blues Festival is scheduled for June 16 and 17.  It appears that June 16 is the date that would appeal to our members.  Among other bands, Little Cliff, The Buzzards and Roomful of Blues will be playing that day.

The first band goes on at Noon and Roomful goes on from 8:45 to 10:00.  Tickets are $15 for one day and $25 for both days and can be purchased on line.

Band: Lil’ Cliff & The Cliffhangers

2006 International Blues Challenge Finalists Lil’ Cliff & the Cliffhangers are a four piece, blues harmonica driven wrecking crew. These knickerbockers have been singing, swinging and stinging Tri State area audiences for the last three plus years with their own special brand of blues power.

After winning the regional IBC competition, hosted locally by the Downstate Blues Society of Long Island, New York, these four professionals then took their special brand of original jump blues down to Memphis, Tennessee to compete in the annual International Blues Challenge. And wouldn’t you know it, out of literally hundreds of blues artists from all over the world the boys placed in the final top ten!

Fresh from this triumph Lil’ Cliff & the Cliffhangers are now out to support their latest indi-cd release “God Bless Women” on Shankbone Records. Through a comprehensive combination of live appearances up and down the Northeast corridor, radio airplay (wfdu, wwoz, wusb to name a few), local cable television appearances (Wes Houston Presents) as well as the most user friendly web site you could hope for (replete with mp3 and electronic press kit downloads) these blues boys knock ‘em out of their shoes and leave them dancin’ barefoot!
