The Roadhouse 677
[24 Feb 2018 | No Comment | 686 views]

This edition of The Roadhouse celebrates 13 years with our tradition – a review of the opening tracks from the previous year. Altered Five Blues Band, Cash Box Kings, Johnny Mastro & Mama’s Boys, Wee Willie Walker, and Tommy Castro step out front and center. It’s not so much the finest blues you’ve never heard – because if you’ve been listening, you’ve heard it. But, it’s definitely an hour of foot-stompin’, chair-dancing blues – the 677th and 13th anniversary Roadhouse.

We’re getting winter-weary at The Little Blue House in the Wetlands. But, however cold it is outside, the Macbook is hot with blues this week. Billy Boy Arnold, Eric Bibb, Jimmie Vaughan, Sue Foley, and Lucky Peterson warm the hour. We’ll just forget about the snow and focus on the accumulation of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 676th Roadhouse.

Whether you call it all blues or not, the hour has a clear mix and a definite feel. John Campbelljohn, James Hunter Six, Duke Robillard, Curtis Salgado & Alan Hager, and Reverend Shawn Amos provide the variety. Call it what you want. I’ll call it another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 675th Roadhouse.

It seemed so much rockier when I started putting it together – then it all smoothed out across the hour. Delta Wires, Janiva Magness, Laurie Morvan, Little G. Weevil, and Peter Karp take the lead. It’s an hour that shows yet another face of the blues and certainly stands as another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 674th Roadhouse.

The Roadhouse 673
[27 Jan 2018 | No Comment | 973 views]

It’s not all that unusual in The Roadhouse to mix it up a bit. I’m staying with that approach in this hour. The Might Duck Blues Band, Peter Parcek, Sue Foley, Arnaud Fracin & His Roots Combo, and Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings represent the variety you’ve come to love in The Roadhouse and make for another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 673rd Roadhouse.

The Roadhouse 672

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

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.
