With a new year comes new music and artists. I’ve got a ton of both in this hour, including Carvin Jones Band, Curtis Salgado & Alan Hager, Nasta Super & Chris Cain, Tinsley Ellis, and Miss Freddye. I think this hour has the most Roadhouse debuts of any in the life of the show. It’s a fresh start in a fresh year and a fresh hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 672nd Roadhouse.

The Roadhouse 671
[13 Jan 2018 | No Comment | 283 views]

Let’s call this edition of The Roadhouse a freestyle edition. At the last minute, I threw out the playlist, deciding instead to let one song lead me into the next. I’ve got Monster Mike Welch & Mike Ledbetter, John Primer & Bob Corritore, Sugar Ray & The Bluetones, Lavay Smith & Her Red-Hot Skillet Lickers, and Anthony Geraci & The Boston Blues All-Stars in the hour. It’s an hour of unplanned blues and certainly another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 671st Roadhouse.

The Roadhouse 670
[6 Jan 2018 | No Comment | 366 views]

This edition of The Roadhouse pulls fifteen tracks from the blues releases of 2017. Altered Five Blues Band, Samantha Fish, Jason Ricci, Milligan Vaughan Project, and Eric Bibb lead the way, but also I’ve placed some surprises along the path. Don’t think of this as a “best of” edition. Instead, think of it as an hour-long summary of the year in blues and another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 670th Roadhouse.

I’m on the road this week, so you get a Roadhouse Rewind from 2009. I’ll be back next week with a new edition.

The 252nd Roadhouse closes out the Christmas season with a good mixture of holiday and non-holiday blues. Koko Taylor, Indigenous, Luther Allison, Gina Sicilia, and Sonny Boy Williamson take front and center in this edition. They’re backed by a full bandstand of other artists that will leave you with no doubt that this is another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.

The Roadhouse 667
[16 Dec 2017 | No Comment | 347 views]

I try to fill every hour to the brim with great blues tracks, but this time, I’ve outdone myself. With eighteen tracks, this is the biggest Roadhouse ever. The Love Light Orchestra, Arthur Adams, Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials, Joe Bonamassa, and Shaun Murphy are just a few of the great featured artists. It’s a huge hour of blues and clearly another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 667th Roadhouse.

Under normal circumstances, you always get an hour of great new blues in The Roadhouse. But, it’s the holiday season. That means you also get some great holiday blues. Lucky Peterson, Michael Burks, Heather Newman, Mavis Staples, and Johnny Rawls help mix in the new with the holidays. It’s another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 666th Roadhouse.
