Ain't Nothin' but the Blues!

News about the Dicky Neely Blues Band and his buddies. Schedules as they develop, photos, old and new and maybe a few odd things here and there. I have recorded with several local artists; Jimmy Trout,Jesse Bishop,Woody Ray Lawson,Dennis Gilley,and others.

Gary (big daddy g) is living out in Florida from what I understand, and he still plays a mean Gibson guitar to the best of my knowledge. I hung out in that music store h had back in the early 90's over in Rockport. I think Gary still visits the gulf coast(Rockport)from time to time since he has or had a son living in the area. Haven't talked to Gary in a while, but he's a great guy and gave many of us a chance at blues music. I for one would never have bridged the gap into blues and rock on the sax if Gary hadn't stuck his neck out for me. I'd sure like to get in touch with Gary if any of you know where he is
let me know.

RIP Big Daddy! I was shocked to hear of his passing. I didn't get to play with him long but when we did it was really somethin'!

Bob Sweeney here, I played with Gary for a few years in Lewisville Tx, and was lucky enough to play a few shows and sit in with him in Fl as well.
He was my mentor/big brother. He turned me on to the blues, and took me onstage.

We used to hit this jam spot every sunday night, Cat's...Sometimes there was no P.A. system, and we'd just get lost in a long jam.

I miss you Gary, I always though there would be a next jam.

Bob
