Episode Info:

Hey folks. This month for our September edition of Blues Dance World, we have not one but TWO special guests: Laney Barhaugh and Ben Hejkal! First, we’ll start this month’s episode with Clyde, Lanie, and Aaron summarizing their experiences at Southbound Blues, an exchange that happened recently in Nashville. We’ll also briefly discuss other events we’ve been to: Mezzjelly, Sweet Mo. Then, Clyde will take us through our Monthly Blues Jam! This month our featured artist is Jimmy McCracklin, a San Francisco based “texas shuffle” blues musician. McCracklin’s style is influenced by West Coast blues, Jump Blues and RnB. He’s recorded over 30 albums, written almost a thousand songs, and earned four gold records. We will listen to a song by McCracklin, called “The Walk.” After that, we will dive into our main topic: How to throw an event! Dance events take a lot of meticulous planning, hard work, and coordination. As anyone who’s been involved in organizing knows, it is a thankless, underappreciated job. We’ll share some organizer pro-tips. We’ll discuss everything from how to put together a team to how to fund your event, from making sure registration goes smoothly to finding a vision for your event and staying relevant and innovative. We’ll end with a few organizer horror stories. Can’t get enough Blues and want to know which events are happening around the world?
