Hit the Blue Note

There's a little slack in my pimpin'. I've posted some recent events over on MySpace, but I've sort of neglected this gig for a little bit. I'm still dropping in on others' blogs, but mine has received little to no attention.

The Greek Festival here in Wilmington wrapped up a couple weeks ago at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, with a Saturday date since that Friday was rained out. It was a fun time to be had by all. Lots of food, family, friends, and well...Greek people.

St. Anthony's Italian Festival just came to a close this past Sunday with Vice President Joe Biden in attendance. Why was he here? Because he's from here, and unlike all the other "important" people in the world, Biden isn't a deserter.

Moving along. Due to my tardiness, we're now two days into the Clifford Brown Jazz Festival. This is an annual, week-long music festival to honor the late Clifford Brown, held here in downtown Wilmington, DE. It's free, for all ages, and hosts some of the most talented acts around. Last year brought George Duke and David Sanborn to the stage in Rodney Square. If you weren't there, you weren't doing anything. This year's main attraction for the festival is Kem. In addition to all the great music are various food offerings, as well as art sales, live art demos, and other amazing items to pick up for yourself or someone special.

The Clifford Brown Jazz Festival will conclude Sunday, June 21, 2009.
