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!

Tonight we feature the 1988 double cassette release of the Blue Band called Dealer's Choice.  It was their greatest hits to that point.  The band in 1988 featured Bob Dorr on harmonica and vocal, Molly Nova on Violin, Bass, and Vocal, Jeff Peterson on guitar and vocal, Ron DeWitte guitar, bass, and vocal,  Bobby Thompson on sax, and Bryce, Loshman on drums.  Som of these recordings go back to 1981 and include Bill Cannon on sax, Phil Bunky Marlow on sax, E scott Esbeck in guitar and bass, Phil Mass sound and lights.  Tom Tatman at Catamount recordings was the Engineer.  

Just a note, technical difficulties and strep throat cut his show short.  I could talk about the Blue band for hours and hours!!
