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.

The great harmonica player, singer and long time front man for Anson Funderburgh and the Rockets died on Monday, July 17, of throat cancer in his home town, Dallas, Texas.
Meyers had been unable to speak or perform for the past two years.
Meyers was a nine time W.C. Handy Award winner and last February received the Blues Ambasssador award in his former home state of Mississippi.
Meyers career reaches back into the fifties when he was a drummer with Ellmore James. Posted by Picasa
