We’re back to the slate of new blues this week, with the return of one of the original Roadhouse artists, and a couple of Roadhouse debuts thrown in, as well.

It’s definitely another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 741st Roadhouse.

The Roadhouse 739
[4 May 2019 | Comments Off on The Roadhouse 739 | 221 views]

I’m keeping with the string of upbeat Roadhouse shows and I have to say – if there was ever a prototypical hour, this is the one. Mary Lane, Kenny “Beedyeyes” Smith, Shemekia Copeland, Peter Frampton Band, and Reese Wynans fill the bandstand under the little yellow spotlight. It’s another hour of great new blues that will keep you moving, and it’s certainly another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 739th Roadhouse.

The Roadhouse 738
[27 Apr 2019 | Comments Off on The Roadhouse 738 | 241 views]

Sometimes you just have to go with a mood. Though I usually push out a bunch of new tracks, this week I’m pushing a feeling. With Mississippi Heat, Chicago Rhythm & Blues Kings, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, Lurrie Bell, and Andy Santana & The West Coast Playboys, you’ll likely find yourself moving for the full hour. It’s a mix of old and new, including quite a bit of stuff I’ve played over the years. But, it’s all upbeat and chair-dance ready in this edition of The Roadhouse. It’s just another hour of the finest blues … the 738th Roadhouse.

There may be no better reason to hang out in The Roadhouse each week than to escape the troubles of the world. I can definitely help you do that this week. John Mayall, Willie Buck, Joe Roy Jackson, Jimmie Vaughan, and The B.B. King Blues Band will help to shut things out for a bit. It’s a mood that will take you away from the stuff that drives us all crazy. And, it’s another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 737th Roadhouse.

This hour contains six great sets. They include some things I haven’t done in awhile: a long blues rock set, a set of next generation blues, and three Roadhouse debuts, as well. This is music you may not hear in other blues shows. But, isn’t that what it’s all about – another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard? It is, and it’s that and more – the 736th Roadhouse.

The Roadhouse 735

While The Roadhouse has been a lot of things over the years, there’s always been a variety of blues. And, that’s consistent in the next hour. I’ve got Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, Mavis Staples, Reese Wynans and Friends, Jonas Scott Cowan, and Rick Vito. Sometimes you do something special; sometimes the most special thing you can do is to be consistent week in and week out. And, for this week – there’s no doubt that it’s consistently another week of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 735th Roadhouse.
