The Roadhouse 873
[27 Nov 2021 | Comments Off on The Roadhouse 873 | 179 views]

It’s an hour of contemporary blues this week, even though some veers off toward blues rock. I’ve got some excellent female blues artists, a good mix of regions, and a track from a very interesting tribute album. Ricci/Krown, Hitman Blues Band, Beth Hart, Sue Foley, and Johnny Tucker will keep you moving for the hour. Sitting or standing, I think you’ll be dancing through another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.

If you’re looking for the headline in the next edition of The Roadhouse, it that it’s another upbeat hour. With three instrumentals and a fully acoustic set, the hour takes off with R.J. Mischo, Raphael Wressnig & Igor Prado, Catfish Keith, Pokey LaFarge, and Keb’ Mo’. It’s the tempo that keeps things moving for another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.

The Roadhouse 870
[6 Nov 2021 | Comments Off on The Roadhouse 870 | 302 views]

This hour is a little heavier on blues rock, but there’s still a pretty interesting mix of artists and styles. I’ve also got a set of great covers of the grandaddy of all of this – Robert Johnson. The Black Keys, The Kentucky Headhunters, The Blues Preachers, Charlie Hunter & Lucy Woodward, and Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials help make up the hour. It’s an hour of blues with an edge, and – well, you know it – another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.

The Roadhouse 869
[30 Oct 2021 | Comments Off on The Roadhouse 869 | 308 views]

I’ve got lots of great blues in the next hour of The Roadhouse, organized, I think, in a way that’ll make sense to you. Witout a any special sets or focus this week, there’s just a flow from the first minute to the sixtieth. Tito Jackson, Danny Bryant, Ben Levin, Joanne Shaw Taylor, and Robert Cray are all ahead. It’s an hour organized quite sensibly and another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.

The Roadhouse 868
[23 Oct 2021 | Comments Off on The Roadhouse 868 | 328 views]

I’ve got a Roadhouse Rewind this week, but will be back next week with a new edition.

I’ve got another broad hour of blues with a pretty big variety of styles. There’s some contemporary blues, a little blues rock, an acoustic set, and a set of soul blues that’ll definitely have you moving. Gary Hoey, Fiona Boyes, Bobby Rush, Wee Willie Walker, and The David Bromberg Band all help to take us away from the rest of the world for awhile. Let’s hope it’s a comfortable, if temporary, shelter. Nonetheless, we know it’ll be another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 608th Roadhouse.
