From 1988 its  Blue Collar, a band that I played with in Kansas City.  This is our original music ( i was wrong on the intro, when I thought it had cover tunes.  I was actualy listening to two tapes at the time:-)  It features Rick Jaques on Guitar, bass, drums and vocals, Tom Gary on Keyboard, guitar, key bass, and vocal, and Dave McConnel on Drums and back up vocals.  It was recorded by Rick Jaques sometime around 1988.  It is a mono mix, but sounds great.  Somewhere I have most of these songs in stereo and with Dave on lead vocals.  Look for a part two:-)

WARNING Adult Langauge

Yup, its another regional local blues showcase.  Tonight we feature the Backstage Boogie Band Plus my ode to Jimmy Pryor, Big Daddy Dennis Kain, Jimmy Pryor, Curry Harter, Lighting Red, Rob Lumbard, Madam Jules, and Johnny Reeferseed.

SO, beware, Johnny Reeferseed and Afroman, yup, that Afroman from the end of the movie Clerks perform Jamie Grim's (Johnny Reeferseed) hit Light em Up.  They use a lot of foul language so senstive ears avoid the show:-)  I love the song, but I understand if you have children who listen to the show avoid this show.  THANKS!
