In the meantime, enjoy our new photo galleries from Hard Rock Cafe, the Pittsburgh Blues Festival and more!

We’ve been to some places…

Bottom Shelf has been playing out at places around the ‘Burgh. Many of you know we’ve performed at the IBC (International Blues Challenge) at the Clarion in Greentree last year (by the way, we’ll be there again this year!!). But we’ve also played some super-fun gigs at the Hard Rock Cafe, Moondogs and oher various places around Pittsburgh.

We also plan to expand our play out dates this year, so if you haven’t see us play live, there will be plenty of opportunities to do so in 2013!

Happy New Year!
