We've had a wonderful summer in the Midwest, I've had the pleasure of doing
multiple festivals all over with our next generation of blues man. You'll be hearing about
Jimmy Nick and his exploits soon ! Meanwhile I've been enjoying some of the best
music in the world right here in Chicago, we're gearing up for a busy holiday season but
there's great entertainment year round.
Please look for me at B.L.U.E.S. On Halsted every Wed for the jam, Nick's Beer
Garden, Buddy Guy's, in Woodstock at DC Cobbs, and in St Charles at The House Pub
with Jimmy Nick and various venues in the city and suburbs, also my new CD has been
released on CD Baby. The link to preview or purchase is on my home page.
Thanks and much love to the many wonderful musicians like Anthony Space,
Roosevelt Purifoy, Brady Williams, Darryl Wright, Kenny Hampton, Jimmy Nick, Vic
Baker Sr, Pooky Styx, Carlos Showers, Brent Kimbrough, DuJaun Austin, Eddie Shaw,
Harry Hmura, Max V, Robin Worthley, Jeff Davison, Bob Rasero, just to mention a few.
I'll be performing with Hotrod, Jimmy Nick & Don't Tell Mama, Roosevelt Purifoy & the
Mad Hatters, The Deitra Farr Blues Band, Ronnie Hicks and Masheen Co as well as other
local artist. Just check my calendar for dates and locations.
I'd like to thank all my supporters, without you I'd never have had the opportunity to f
ollow my dream. First there's my ultimate taskmaster and fan, Mama, who will always be
in my heart and instilled a love of music at an early age. And the friends and loved ones
who've always encouraged my art, like Lil Debbie, Bill, Mike & Lauri, Donna, Ivy, Gail,
Joanne & Big Jim, Lloyd & Odessa. Also much love to Tracy "TJ" Johnson, the very
talented photographer who somehow can make me look good, and the club owners and
promoters who gave me a chance like Dave Freeman who first booked me at one of
Chicago's foremost jazz venues, & Rob Hecko who has always let express my blues "my
way",and Mac from Mac's on Slade who brought "Hotrod" out to Palatine, just to name a
few. Thanks to all of you.
Feel free to call or e-mail me for any info on booking or appearances.
Hope to see your faces in any of many places.
Peace & Hairgrease,
