good music

Gary Blodgett was playing at Irish Kevin's today and I went down to listen to him. He is one of the best pure musicians I've ever heard. He plays guitar, banjo, mandolin and fiddle, and he can cut the shit out of every instrument he picks up. The guy is DAMNED GOOD.

My only complaint with Gary is that he just stands up there and plays his ass off. He has no STAGE PRESENCE.

That has changed now. He has a partner who plays bass with him and that guy serves as a front man to interact with the crowd and do all the things Gary never did before. Together, they make a formidable team.

If you ever come to Key West, go hear Gary play. You won't regret it.


I spent a week in Key West several years ago and loved it. It's a different world down there.

Enjoy yourself, Rob.

I don't seem to remember bumping into you here in Key West. I have been Gary Blodgett's harmonica-playing partner for about 3 years now. I was glad to find your site and welcome you down to Irish Kevins, Rick's, Key Deer Bar & Grill on Big Pine Key (every other Saturday). It seems you caught Gary & Jake at Kevin's as mentioned. Cool! Sorry I missed you that day. Anyway, come see the Gary & Louie Show. The old days of "no stage presence" has long been conquered by this madman-of-a-harp-player--Your's truly. We just released our first CD just last week, aptly entitled: GARY and LOUIE LIVE on DUVAL. Come see us. Buy ya a brew! LH
