B.B. King

The first band I was ever in was a Blues band, I played guitar, I didn’t sing. ‘Lazy Dog Blues Band’ was our name; the singer and I both worked at the same record shop. We both came from different musical roots, but we both LOVED blues music, so we decided to form a band. We would agonise over which songs to include in our set, but of course B.B. King had hold over the both of us, so we had to include one of his standards. I still occasionally throw ‘Rock Me Baby’ into my set because of B.B. King’s influence on me.

Anyway, I’m sure you’ve already heard that B.B. King died; and I’m displeased with entropy, as usual. I’m glad I saw him live a couple of times, it was like higher education.

At least we have him recorded and his soul can still be heard forever, here’s a tremendous version of ‘Stormy Monday’, B.B. King showing us how it’s done:

This Weekend In Live Music! May 15 & 16

Hi! You could probably use some live music this weekend, and if you’re in the Pacific Northwest, I can help:

I’m performing at Mobster Mike’s in Bremerton on Friday, May 15, also singing will be Anna Gordon. 8PM. $5.

And then I’m singing some songs at Cafe Racer in Seattle on Saturday, May 16, Amy Bleu will be coming from Portland to delight our souls and ears. 8PM. So good.

See you soon!

Video: ‘Dark End Of The Street’

The great soul singer Percy Sledge died a few weeks ago and I added one of my favourite songs he used to sing to my own set list as a little tribute, ‘Dark End Of The Street’. We recorded a quick version on my iPhone if you want to check it out:

Enjoy!

Doubleheader Wednesday!

Today I have a doubleheader! I don’t really know what a deoubleheader is since I don’t watch baseball, but I really hope it means something that can also mean I have two shows today…

At 8PM, I’m hosting a singer-songwriter night at The Mix Lounge in Fremont, also singing will be Sarah Pasillas, super loveley. We’ll have an open jam after. Good booze, good food, good music. No cover charge.

But FIRST, for the early birds, I’m singing songs at Happy Hour at Bernard’s on Seneca, 5-7PM.

See you tonight!
