We are spoiled here in DFW. Not only is there a great local scene, but we are blessed with several clubs that bring in fine national touring blues acts. These are a FEW of the upcoming gigs I may be attending. Some of these are national acts, some are local. There are many, many more blues events happening than are listed here. I am not trying to be a delimiter of personal taste for your blues enjoyment. Your mileage may vary. These are just my personal choices (and this listing saves me a BUNCH of "Where ya goin'?" phone calls and e-mails every week). You don't have to choose these, but please choose to go hear some live blues SOMEWHERE as often as you can! As always, check with the club. Things sometimes change at the last minute. Club phone numbers are listed in the DFW Blues Clubs section.
