It is with great sadness to share this news with all of you…I just recieved an e-mail informing me that Lil’ Dave Thompson (1969-2010) has died as a result of a car accident on early Sunday February 14th, after playing the Blues Bash at Fiery Rons in Charleston SC, the last day of a very successful tour. The band was heading towards Greenville MS when their van struck a hole in the road, veered into some gravel, and lost control.
Lil’ Dave is a past “Blues in the District” performer who was very well recieved by us here in Quincy, and a performer that we were hoping to see return to Quincy. He was a rising star in the Blues world, and will be sadly missed by all who have ever crossed paths with him. More details can be found at his website: http://www.lildavethompson.com/
