The finest blues you've never heard.
Updated: 9 min 19 sec ago
We move from the single focus of the Johnny Winter tribute to the full spectrum of blues in this edition. The Mannish Boys, Rip Lee Pryor, Royal Southern Brotherhood, Walter Trout, and Janiva Magness represent some of the best blues out there and, I think, help build another focused hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 491st Roadhouse.
In this edition, I tip my hat to the late guitar master, Johnny Winter. Several favorite tracks dot the landscape of the show. Along with those great cuts, I’ve got Rick Estrin & The Nightcats, Coco Montoya, Billy Boy Arnold, Andy T - Nick Nixon Band, and Rod Piazza & The Mighty Flyers. It’s an hour to thank a blues legend and another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard - the 490th Roadhouse.
In this edition, the crowd is dressed to the nines, throwing dice in the corner and pushing the sawdust around on the dance floor. Feel free to join them at any time with Preston Shannon, Selwyn Birchwood, Jimmy Thackery, Eric Deaton, and Glen David Andrews. It’s a dance-worthy edition in the kind of dive you love to frequent - another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard in the 489th Roadhouse.
There’s a good mix in this edition of The Roadhouse, featuring Tommy Malone, Karen Lovely, Grady Champion, Deanna Bogart, and Rip Lee Pryor. You’ll find the usual variety of styles, but more than that, you find the usual approach - another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard - the 488th Roadhouse.
We turn this week to the harp - not the stringed instrument of the angels but the Mississippi Saxophone - the blues harp. There’s a killer harp track in nearly every set of this edtion, featuring Little Mike & The Tornadoes, Seth Walker, Rick Estrin & the Nightcats, Leon Russell, and Bob Corritore. For blues fans it’s a heavenly hour. It’s definitely another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard, the 487th Roadhouse.
It’s the 486th hour of The Roadhouse, with a full slate of great new blues. Lucky Peterson, Too Slim & The Taildraggers, Vaneese Thomas, Rod Piazza & The Mighty Flyers, and Dave Specter represent the big variety in the hour and help assure it’s another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.
We’re another week deep in The Roadhouse and another week deeper into new releases. John Primer, Royal Southern Brotherhood, Walter Trout, The Nighthawks, and Eden Brent are all featured this week with brand new or soon-to-be-brand-new tracks - stuff that’s just been released or is upcoming in the next few weeks. It’s another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard - the 485th Roadhouse.
There’s so much new music in this edition of The Roadhouse that you can still smell the shrink wrap. Vaneese Thomas, Mike Mattison, Walter Trout, Jarekus Singleton, and Travis Haddix are featured, along with a full set of to-be-released tracks from artists who have been longtime staples of the show. It’s an hour of new blues and another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard - the 484th Roadhouse.
