April 4

Hi gang,

Currently, all of our live shows are canceled until bars and restaurants open again. We hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy. Many venues are staying open for carry out and delivery. They need our support to stay afloat until this crisis passes and we can get back to some semblance of normalcy. We will continue to post here to keep in touch and keep you all informed.

In the meantime, grab some take out from your favorite venue occasionally. Two of our favorites are:

The Fairview Tavern – 21867 Lorain Rd., Fairview Park – (440) 799-4200, carry out, delivery

The Oriole Cafe – 294 N. Rocky River Dr., Berea – (440) 243-8809, carry out, delivery


Tonight: Slim ‘N Shady will live stream on Facebook from 8-10pm, sponsored by The Fairview Tavern! https://www.facebook.com/slimandshadyduo/live/

As always, you can pick up a copy of Shady Drive’s CD, “Darker Shade Of Blue” at all of our live shows (when they resume) and on Amazon, CDBaby or iTunes! You can hear us often, along with other blues artists on WCSB-FM Mondays at 9pm and on BluesMusicFan.com!

Stay well, stay home and help each other however you are able. Thank you.

We’ll talk soon…
