Roadhouse 583

Sat, 04/30/2016 - 23:11
After a few weeks away, it's good to be back to The Roadhouse Studios. Though I struggled a bit to put this one together, I think you'll find the outcome to be worth the struggle. Albert Castiglia, Big Jon Atkinson & Bob Corritore, Dave Muskett, Roddie Romero & The Hub City All-Stars, and Shaun Murphy are all part of the hour. With an edition almost completely full of new music, I think it's safe to say you're in for another hour of the finest blues you've never heard.

Roadhouse 582

This week, it's the second of two Roadhouse Rewinds while I work my way home from vacation. I'll be back next week with a new edition of The Roadhouse.

The dark little dive we call The Roadhouse is home this week to the broadest range of blues you might find anywhere. Smokey Wilson, Frank Goldwasser, Snooky Pryor, Anders Osborne, and Bluesmasters featuring Mickey Thomas mix it up with various takes on the blues. The spotlight is on the multeity of the blues in the 270th Roadhouse, and it's definitely another hour of the finest blues you've never heard.

Roadhouse 581

Roadhoue 581 is a Roadhouse Rewind this week, as I'm in New England for a few weeks. Enjoy Roadhouse 321 from April 16, 2011.

This edition of The Roadhouse proves the statement we've been making for six years of Saturdays - that the blues isn't just about the old guy on his porch, an acoustic guitar in his lap. Blues can be upbeat, too. The Chris O'Leary Band, Kelley Hunt, Hamilton Loomis, Janiva Magness, and The Juke Joints set the tone for a chair-dancin' hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 321st Raodhouse.

Roadhouse 580

I've got a feel for some West Coast blues. Of course, that West Coast sound is really almost a migratory blues sound - moving from Texas to the coast. So, there's some Texas in this edition, too. Kirk Fletcher, Johnny Nicholas, Floyd Dixon, Nappy Brown, and The Mannish Boys all make for an hour of uncontrollable chair-dancing and what's clearly a solid hour of the finest blues you've never heard.

Roadhouse 579

Sat, 04/02/2016 - 22:29
Let's call this edition of The Roadhouse tough as chrome with a little more blues rock than usual and a couple of extended tracks from some Roadhouse favorites. Guy King, Joe Bonamassa, Joanne Shaw Taylor, Gary Clark, Jr, and Peter Karp featuring Mick Taylor - all are driving the hour. Even the slower tracks have a toughness to them. But tough or tender, fast or slow, you know the 579th Roadhouse will be another hour of the finest blues you've never heard.

Roadhouse 578

Sat, 03/26/2016 - 18:41
As we move into the spring new release cycle, I've got five artists in this edition making their debut in The Roadhouse. Evelyn Rubio with The Calvin Owens Blues Orchestra, Too Slim & The Taildraggers, Jeff Healey, Mavis Staples, and Sugar Pie DeSanto propel us along for the hour. New music, new artists and a new season out my window. Couldn't ask for a better set of conditions to put together another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 578th Roadhouse.

Roadhouse 577

Sat, 03/19/2016 - 23:01
The 577th Roadhouse has a lot of potential: to get your toes tapping, to hear some great blues that you might not have known about otherwise, and potential for some chair-dancing. Johnny Rawls, Steve Earle & The Dukes, Luther Dickinson, Guy King, Tasha Taylor - almost every track in the hour is new within the past 2 or 3 months or still to be released. In other words, there's also the potential here for an hour that really just flies by and, of course, to be another hour of the finest blues you've never heard.

Roadhouse 576

Sat, 03/12/2016 - 20:47
In this edition of The Roadhouse, we pack up an move to Chicago for an hour of contemporary blues from the Windy City. Magic Slim, Billy Boy Arnold, James Cotton, Hound Dog Taylor, and Byther Smith set the stage for an hour of blues as distinctive as any other feature of the city. From the home of the blues, the 576th Roadhouse is another hour of the finest blues.
