The Beale Street Mess Around - Digital e-Book

dBlues had an AWESOME time at The Beale Street Mess Around last Friday during the BMA's! We have put together an e-Book that serves as a photo documentation of Brandon Santini's 4th Annual fundraising event benefiting The Blues Foundation's Hart Fund. The moments captured are more than stage shots of the performers. If you attended the event there is a great chance your are on one of the 49 pages filled with over 140 photos from the day. Also, by purchasing this book you are not only reliving the amazing day of music and friends but 100% of the profits from the sales of this eBook will also be donated to the Hart Fund to continue fundraising efforts inspired by Santini. This book and the 4th Annual Beale Street Mess Around are dedicated to the memory of Ted Todd.

Teddy Johnson's Birthday Celebration

A few weeks ago, Jenn got to celebrate Teddy Johnson's "69th" birthday (again) at Teddy's Juke Joint in Zachary, Louisiana! They had been advertising Teddy's birthday celebration all over Facebook for weeks with these great ads below! At the end of the night, Jenn gifted Teddy one of her amazing documentingBlues collection prints that's framed in a vintage door. The photo showed Teddy and his wife Nancy dancing at one of Larry Garner's performances from 2013 at the juke joint. Jenn has been photographing blues musicians at Teddy's Juke Joint for years now, and has grown close with Teddy and Nancy. Thanks to James Huval for helping us catch the great moments!
