The Roadhouse 692
[9 Jun 2018 | No Comment | 924 views]

In this hour of The Roadhouse, it’s all blues, but in some cases it’s branched off a bit into blues rock and R&B. Mahalia Barnes + The Soul Mates, Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite, Bettye LaVette, Jarekus Singleton, and Eden Brent help make up the hour. We’ll just go out exploring and see what we come back with. I’m pretty sure, though, that what we’ll come back with is another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 692nd Roadhouse.

You may look up at the end of the hour and realize that how you think about blues has changed just a bit. Along with traditional tracks, I’ve got several that are a little off on the siding of the blues train. Barrence Whitfield & the Savages, Dana Fuchs, Suzie Vinnick, Elise LeGrow, and Buddy Guy – it’s an hour that moves in several directions, but it’s definitely an hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 691st Roadhouse.

What’s ahead in the next hour of The Roadhouse? Keeshea Pratt Band make their Roadhouse debut while Michelle Malone, Albert Collins, Buddy Guy & Junior Wells, and Kaz Hawkins provide the backbone. Diverse and danceable – I think that’s the theme. I’ll say it again – it’s another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 690th Roadhouse.
