Happy Holidays! 

The holidays bring a wide range of emotions and can sometimes be overwhelming.  Spending Christmas With The Blues is my new blues Christmas song that speaks to the heart and let's us know that sometimes it's ok to be a little blue during the holidays and to laugh at the absurdness that can come with holiday spending.  We hope you enjoy this new seasonal song and wish you the very best during the holidays....Val Starr

This Week In The Blues 

On Sunday the Blues Rocket headed out the Mokelumne Hill to perform at the historic (and haunted!) Hotel Leger.  The day was fine, the music was mine (Cool Ride lyric!).  We had a blast.  We were also proud to be featured in this month's "Women In Blues" edition of Blues-E-News.  I am so honored to be included in this editorial tribute to all the amazing women in the blues.  The week will end on a high note with our 5th concert at Blues On The Patio sharing the stage with the amazing Ms. Kaye Bohler! 

Doug's Pool Party and Lisa Mann 

I recently had the privilege of joining the stage with an amazing award winning blues gal, Lisa Mann and her band at Doug's Pool party.  Lisa is an extraordinary bass player and her drummer, Dave, also has played with Cee Cee James.
