It’s an unexpected Rewind from The Roadhouse Studios this week. I’ll be back next week with a new edition of The Roadhouse.

This edition of The Roadhouse will have you out of your chair from start to finish. Barrelhouse Chuck & Kim Wilson’s All-Stars, Johnny Copeland, Mark Hummel, Moreland & Arbuckle, and Honey Island Swamp Band tear up the hour in a show that will pass far too quickly. It’s the 440th hour of The Roadhouse and another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.

The Roadhouse 595

What lies ahead in this hour of The Roadhouse? I’ve got a couple of sets of classic blues artists – one that nearly spans the country from west to east, and one that’s dedicated to some of the great female voices in the blues. The Rides, Jimmy Rogers, Big Maybelle, Big Mama Thornton, and Charley Crockett. We’re about to go for a ride across geography and time. And, since you’ve probably heard some of the classic tracks that lie ahead, I’ll just say that ride fills up another hour of the finest blues – the 595th Roadhouse.

I’ve got a full hour ahead, with a next generation set and a set of gospel blues centered around The Staples. It’s all mixed in with a bigger variety of blues. Jeremiah Johnson Band, Gary Clark, Jr, Jarekus Singleton, Mavis Staples, and The Nick Schnebelen Band all contribute to what I think will be another fun hour of blues variety, and certainly another fun hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 594th Roadhouse.

The Roadhouse 593
[9 Jul 2016 | No Comment | 472 views]

In this hour, I’ve got lots of horns, lots of walking bass and probably a little more harp than usual. If the music’s not rollin’, it’s tumblin’. Mitch Woods, Kilborn Alley, Anthony Geraci & The Boston Blues All-Stars, Roomful of Blues, and Terry Hanck – all just a slice of the craziness ahead. If this hour doesn’t have you moving, you probably need to call 911 because this hour of The Roadhouse is all upbeat and every bit another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.

The bandstand’s set, the lights are dimmed, the sawdust is on the dance floor, and we’re ready to take you away from the cares of the world for awhile. It’s gonna take some help to do that. Fortunately, Lucky Peterson, Mike Eldred Trio, Jim Suhler & Monkeybeat, Katy Guillen & The Girls, and Laura Rain & The Caesars are ready to lead the charge of escape.

As always, a big hour ahead in this edition of The Roadhouse. It’ll probably get your heart rate going a bit as it’s pretty much all upbeat, uptempo, outstanding blues. Sammy Eubanks, The Kentucky Headhunters, Mark May & The Soul Satyr Horns, Alabama 3, and Big Pete get the headliner slots, but the other tracks and other acts are no less killer. Let’s just call it cardio blues in this, another hour of the finest blues you’ve never hear – the 591st Roadhouse.
