The band will be bring­ing every­thing a blues fan could want to Pough­keep­sie this Fri­day night, June 29.

Look­ing for an ear­ly evening, art and live blues? Come hear the band play out­doors in the sculp­ture gar­den at Vas­sar Col­lege’s art muse­um (just inside the front gates of the cam­pus), right after you take a half-hour tour of the new­ly-designed sculp­ture gar­den at 7pm. Light refresh­ments will be served.

Can’t get to Pough­keep­sie till lat­er in the evening for your blues fix, or have tick­ets to a play the Vas­sar Pow­er­house? Swing on over to the BeechTree Grill on Col­legeview Ave. at the north end of Vas­sar’s cam­pus from 10pm onwards to hear the band tear­ing it up in this pop­u­lar local din­ing and drink­ing establishment.

They’re sure to be play­ing many of the songs from their just-released sec­ond CD, plus all your old favorites. We’ll see you there!

For all of you fans that are anx­ious­ly await­ing the arrival of the next CD, the wait is almost over: Wait­ing for the Phone to Ring will be released on June 26th.

While the first CD, Mr. Used to Be, cat­a­pult­ed the band into the fore­front of the blues world and brought them well-deserved recog­ni­tion, this new CD proves that The Chris O’Leary Band can fol­low an award-win­ning first CD with a sec­ond CD that con­firms the band’s evo­lu­tion and musi­cal abil­i­ty. The review­er who said “this is a band to watch out for” was right.

Please  check out the band’s gig dates and come buy a new CD in per­son. If you can’t wait for the band to play at a venue near you, go to Ama­zon or iTunes to buy a copy.
