The nominees were recently announced for the Rooster Blues Awards. The winners in each category are expected to be revealed in early June.
The annual competition, sponsored by the Rainy Day Blues Society, is a nod to Gavin “Rooster” Fox, who was only 51 when he lost his battle to ALS in 1999.
Rooster not only was the longtime host of the weekly Rooster’s Blues Jam and DJ of KLCC’s Blues Power program, he was a beloved friend, mentor, sports fan and blues historian . . .
