Living Blues Magazine says of the band "The Wildcat O’Halloran Band have been a Massachusetts institution for over two decades. The band’s latest release, "Hot Pulldown" brims with tight musicianship and raucous energy. O’Halloran is an agile guitarist, and his backing musicians have the type of musical chemistry that only comes from sharing the stage for years." Video still photo by MoeJoe Vision.

I voted in the Massachusetts primary today.
I'm lucky that I vote in a beautiful wood-paneled Town Hall, where the poll workers are retired teachers who taught my kids. I'm lucky that we have good old-fashioned paper ballots that you fill out with a Sharpie and that I live in a state where all the names on the ballot—in all the parties—are good, intelligent people who, even though I may disagree with their methods, want to work to make my state a better place.
As Tip O'Neil said "All politics is local," and he's right. What happens at a local level—at the primaries, at the races for State Representative and Attorney General—affect the national political scene. Yet people don't vote. Today in Boston as of 3pm, voter turn out was at 12 percent. TWELVE PERCENT?! How can we complain about the outcome of our elections when only 12 percent of us vote?
So get out and cast your ballot. If you've already voted, call your neighbors and remind them that the polls are open 'til 8pm. If you haven't registered—register. Voting is your voice.
It's your patriotic duty and it's your privilege to raise it every chance you can.

The evening was cool...the music was hot...Wow! Flippin' for the Blues officially launched last night with an event at Cisco Brewers in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. It couldn't have been more perfect. Jugghead Band set the mood with their feel good, front-porch style music. Young parents relaxed under umbrella-shaded tables, toddlers danced in front of the stage, dogs lounged in the sun. The food was terrific and the beer was crisp and cold.
For us, this was the first event of a tour that will take us from Maine to Ohio. If every stop is as powerful, inspiring and fun as last night, we'll never going to want to come home.
