Just ask Kerry Kearney.
"I don’t understand why people don’t think that there’s a blues scene here in Long Island.
"Today at Katie's of Smithtown, you couldn’t fit any more people in the room for the (Long Island) Blues Society's Memphis Send Off Benefit.
"There are many radio shows here on Long Island and in the tri-state area that cater just to blues and we have a great Blues Society that does a lot of work for this.
"So how is there no scene? The KKB has been together for 25 years now and I’ve seen things go up and down but I’ve always seen a good scene going on. And today was a perfect example.
"I have to give it to Katie's of Smithtown for putting on the show and showing that there is an audience for this music. I’m all for tribute bands and I think they’re great, but there is also an audience for what we do in more of an original vein.
"In the future, I'd love see more of these shows happening and I hope to see you all there sometime! Keep on Rockin (and Bluesin')! "
