When he wasn’t out fishing, John Dee Holeman certainly has had a busy summer. In addition to being featured in an ad campaign for Martin Guitars, in May John Dee performed at the Apollo for The Jazz Foundation of America’s annual “A Great Night in Harlem” gala concert to benefit the Jazz Musicians Emergency Fund. Now more recently he became a finalist for the Independent Weekly’s “Best of the Triangle 2012” in the best blues artist/band category. Amongst the finalists were: Chicken Fried Blues, Mel Melton & The Wicked Mojos, and the winner became Bullfrog Willard McGhee. Congrats John Dee!
