WITH JOHN NEMETH

John NemethHad the pleasure of playing some songs with him at Rum Boogie Sunday night.  There is a reason he keeps getting nominated for awards.  Great night!

ZILLA ON THE DRUMS

“Zilla” for those who dont know is Rodd Bland, son of legendary Bobby Blue Bland, who is a monster drummer from Memphis.  Doing a show with him is so much fun.

PENSACOLA RECAP

Well Pensacola has come and gone but it is still fresh in my memory.  Pensacola use to be my old stomping grounds for at least 7 years before I moved to Memphis.  I got to meet some old friends that I havent seen in forever.  Got to play for some of the nicest folks that come to the Paradise Inn.  Thanks to the band too; they were kicking! Met a little boy whos mom said was taken by the guitar.  I gave him a pick and signed CD and front row seat to the show.  I even let him strum a couple of chords.  Hopefully one day I will see him again with a playing the blues on his own guitar.  Oh, yeah the band will back soon.  Here are some pics from the weekend.
