San Diego Blues now Downtown San Diego LIVE

I’m delighted to share with you the launch of Downtown San Diego Live, which covers more than Blues.  Instead of featuring just blues music, I’ll now being covering all live music.  Check out for the weekly calendar.

I’ve found that just focusing on blues isn’t what most people want.  Blues lovers, primarily people over 40 (a forgotten market to the people opening new clubs and marketing music), also enjoy jazz, smooth jazz, soul, R&B, acoustic music, rock, country and many other genres.

So this ends the year for the San Diego Blues Downtown site.  But this site is a wonderful anthology (so much great video) of the blues played downtown when more venues supported it and some of the best blues musicians in the area had the opportunity to play here.

There is still some blues at Patrick’s, the Speakeasy, Humphrey’s, the House of Blues and a few other places, but not on a regular basis as in the past.  I’m sad to see this end, but I’m excited to explore all the other great music happening downtown.  Hopefully my efforts will generate more interest in live music and in the blues.

Thank you to all my supporters and followers.  I appreciate you all.  Many blessings to you this holiday season.


San Diego Blues Calendar: Dec 1st – 7th

Blues Calendar - Dec 1This is a bit of strange week for San Diego blues.  There isn’t much real blues happening at the Speakeasy or Patrick’s, which is highly unusual.  But you can hear some good blues at Balboa Park’s December Nights on Friday and Saturday.

I haven’t heard Rosy Dawn before, and she’s playing at Patrick’s and Hennessey’s at the end of the week.  From what I hear, she does blues, R&B and soul.

You can also get some downtown blues at the jams Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.
Take note: the JammingOut at HOB jam is on Thursday, not Wednesday, this week.
Enjoy the music!
