Almost six decades in music has brought me to this point. Having fun and playing blues at this beautiful place. From my first recordings to playing live I've always looked forward to what's next. The groups we've put together for these blues nights are all slightly different. Rooted in American blues "the only kind" from Delta to Kansas City to Chicago blues and New Orleans, it don't matter! To keep our sound true to the blues it's based on the blues. Hats off to Bistango and Bayside Restaurant for making this happen and all the players for everything.
