It's the most diverse show ever in The Roadhouse, with full sets of blues rock, Chicago blues and acoustic roots. Scott McKeon, Al Kooper & Mike Bloomfield, Mississippi John Hurt, Louisiana Red, and Preston Shannon are sprinkled in amongst the broadest picture of the blues you could imagine. It's definitely diverse and, yes - it's another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 496th Roadhouse.
With a big number of tracks featuring artists other than the primary, this edition of The Roadhouse seems to be all about musical friendship.

New music featuring friends - it's a great way to roll through another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 495th Roadhouse.
With quite a few new blues tracks, a little more live blues than usual and a set that focuses on a real staple instrument of the blues, this edition shakes out as interesting, for sure.

This edition of The Roadhouse has the power and feel of a train rolling by a weight of blues you can feel from the soles of your feet on up. Lucky Peterson, Alexis P.

We move from the single focus of the Johnny Winter tribute to the full spectrum of blues in this edition.

It’s an hour to thank a blues legend and another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard - the 490th Roadhouse.
