APRIL 1st     The Paramount Blues Challenge

                       Port Washington,WI


Lil' Davy Max Band took first place and will be representing Wisconsin in the 34th International Blues Challenge to be held in Memphis. Tennessee  January 16th - 20th  2018


November has brought some changes. Some are sad as the old farmstead has been sold and many of my memories are being bulldozed down and away.  Change is inevitable I guess.

Also, we bid adieu to our bandmate Keith " Fingers" Farnum a veteran of the blues for over 50 years. Keith is retiring to take better care of his health. I have to say that not only is Keith one of the most likable and lovable guys you ever met, he is rock solid steady with a bass tone that just melts you. One of the bright spots in my life was to cross paths and play music with Keith Farnum. 

Thank you sir.
