The story of this edition of The Roadhouse is that I’m going to fulfill my favorite plan as your host in our little dive to make the hour as upbeat as possible. This one should fulfill your weekly cardio requirements. Corey Dennison Band, Vaneese Thomas, Eugene “Hideaway” Bridges, Andra Faye & Scott Ballantine, and Hard Swimmin’ Fish. They fill the hour along with eight or nine other tracks that will keep you moving, and keep you believing that you’ve absolutely found another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 599th Roadhouse.

The Roadhouse 598
[13 Aug 2016 | No Comment | 320 views]

It’s tough to classify the variety of blues in this hour of The Roadhouse, so I’ll just stay out of the way of putting your own frame around it. Alabama Mike, Terrie Odabi, Rose City Kings, Dave Muskett, and Ann Rabson – if you’re familiar with those artists, that tells you everything you need to know about the mix of blues in this hour. One thing is certin about that mix, though. It’s definitely a mix to comprise another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 598th Roadhouse.

The Roadhouse 597
[6 Aug 2016 | No Comment | 203 views]

The single word to describe this hour of The Roadhouse is “debut.” I’ve got five artists in the hour who are making their Roadhouse debuts. And, it was extremely difficult to pull together the playlist because there were multiple tracks from those debut artists that I’d loved to have dropped in the show. Colin James, Rose City Kings, John Blues Boyd, The Jackson Whites, and the Jeremiah Johnson Band help fill the hour. Let’s welcome the new artists to The Roadhouse, knowing they’ll provide big contributions to another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.

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
[23 Jul 2016 | No Comment | 379 views]

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 | 632 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.
