Stoney B Blues Summit Rocked the House – Michele Lundeen & Annette DaBomb

Two of my favorite soulful blues singers in San Diego were at the Stoney B Summit last Sunday night, and they were fantastic.

Michele isn’t called the Queen of Steam for nothing.  Here she is singing one of her original songs, Song Inside Me (title of her CD – great CD!, which you can get link to it on my Tunes page).  She’s singing with Charles Burton on guitar (who also performed on her CD), Ric Lee on drums, John Simons on bass and special guest Irv Goldstein on the organ.

In this video Michele is singing another one of her originals, also on that same CD, called Blues is a Feeling.  Great song.

Here is Annette DaBomb singing cover song Got My Mojo Working, with Andres Acuna on guitar, Doc Holiday on keyboards, Bob Prater on bass, Tony Peterson on drums, and Zach Cole harmonica.

Queen of Steam at Humphrey’s Backstage Lounge

One of my favorite female blues singers is Michele Lundeen, and she performs downtown fairly often – mostly at Humphrey’s Backstage Lounge.  She will be back there next week on Tuesday the 16th 7pm.

I was there Friday night and got this video of her singing the cover song Some Kind of Wonderful with her band.  I need to get more video of her!!   She’s good and lots of fun, and she owns up to her name – the Queen of Steam.

Blues Calendar: Dec 16th – 22nd

Blues Calendar - Dec 16

We have another full week of live music around the downtown area.  There are jams on Monday (at SpeakEasy), Tuesday (at Patrick’s), Wednesday (at House of Blues 7-11p that isn’t on the calendar since they don’t offer $1 discount) and Thursday (at Spaghetteria).

Also this Friday at House of Blues is a special holiday event.  CeeCee James and Michele Lundeen will be playing on the free house stage (7-11p).  There is no cover.  All they ask is that you bring a toy for Toys for Tots.  Michele will also be in the Gaslamp SpeakEasy on Saturday, which is a treat for all of us who love her raw blues voice.

Please tip the bands.  There is no cover at most of the venues, so tips matter!  Thanks.

San Diego Blues Calendar: Dec 2nd – 8th

Blues Calendar - Dec 2

There is a lot of blues downtown this week.  In addition to what is on the calendar above, there is also the Wednesday night jam at the House of Blues that starts at 7pm.

Also at the HOB on the free stage is a BLUSD (our local blues organization – see for more info) appreciation party that will feature 4 blues bands.  That will be happening Sunday 12/8 from 1-5pm.  It is free to members and $15 for non-members, but you can apply that to a membership to support our local blues scene.

Two of our wonderful female blues bands will be playing at December Nights in Balboa Park this coming Saturday 12/7.  Michele Lundeen’s band will be kicking off at noon, and Mercedes Moore’s band starts at 10pm.

Please don’t forget to tip the bands if you enjoy listening to them!  Thanks so much.
