The Blue Door
FOR THE SAKE OF THE SONG
FEB 15 2010
Dear Friends In Music
Sorry I haven’t written in a while. Things are kinda crazy at the Blue Door now
as we continue with this massive historical restoration project. Here is what
has happened so far
1. The front stones are down and will be put back in the exact same place.
2. We have new AC/Heat now in front concert room and in back office
3. New insulation, new plumbing for the new bathrooms ( they still are not done
4. New side doors ( to be painted Blue soon)
5. New window near the patio area
6. New steel reinforcement beams in the concert room and bathroom area
7. New stage lights
8. New plumbing for the back apartment
9. All the cracks in the front concert room are gone, no drain to trip over now
all brand new concrete. Soon we will paint it the nice burgundy color it was when
I started doing shows.
That is about it for now and soon we will have a new front and side porch, new
nice landscaping and lighting outside, a new fire pit for the cooler days as you
sit on the patio. It’s gonna be so great to just have things work, all extension
cords gone etc.
After we have our ‘facelift’ we still need operating expenses so please help raise
money however you can for our continued efforts to bring the best singer/songwriters
and instrumentalists to the Blue Door. We have raised $1,300 on our $100 dollar
per person campaign and need more for our goal of $10,000. Thanks so much
Ok now to the music. We have had some great shows as all this construction is goin
on, even with just porta pottys as bathrooms. Ray Wylie Hubbard was great as always,
Mark Stuart and Stacey Earle played their last duo show at the Blue Door on Feb.
5th and will both be back sometime. Po Girl sold out the Blue Door for the first
time, and KC Clifford set a Blue Door attendance mark for 255 folks coming on two
nights! KC is a local artist but not JUST a local artist, she is kickin ass all
over the place from the Northeast to Chicago.
Tomorrow night John Fullbright takes the stage with Terry Buffalo Ware.
Saturday night the great Steve Young returns with his son Jubal Lee Young.
Feb 26-27 Jimmy Webb returns with John Fullbright opening
then it’s almost spring and so many shows lined up already!!!
Love each other as best you can spread the word about the Blue Door
LIVE MUSIC IS BETTER!!

new music for another generation. It will be yet another classic Blue Door show.

FRI FEB 26
SAT FEB 27
with special guest
An evening with Jimmy Webb is like no other show at the Blue Door. His timeless
songs and his wonderful stage presence make for a classic combination. Many have
said they would pay for the stories alone, but thankfully Jimmy is also gonna sing
many of his classics and more obscure gems. Recently Jimmy recorded a new album,
“Just Across The River” which features guests such as Billy Joel, WIllie Nelson,
Linda Ronstadt, Vince Gill, Mark Knoffler, Michael McDonald, JD Souther and Lucinda
Williams. Now that is some support. Jimmy told me it’s his best work ever and
the record should be out sometime in 2010. Joining Jimmy will be Oklahoma’s next
great songwriter John Fullbright playing songs from his “Live At The Blue Door”
$40 at the door
