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.

Carl Lewis Died Yesterday

Yesterday came the news that local Juvenile Court Judge Carl Lewis had died of a heart attack. This was shocking news.
Carl was a good judge in a difficult job and he handled it very well.
I knew him in quite a different light. He was also a blues man, a singer and a harp player. He and his band, Carl Lewis and the Dead Beats, have entertained around here for years. Accompanied by lawyer buddies David Bright and Tyner Little on guitars, they were always crowd favorites.
Carl had a fabulous voice and probably would have had a future in the music business should he have dropped his day job!
Condolences to his family and his many friends and to all he had offered a helping hand or who loved his music. Rest in peace.
