It's JD McPherson's rocker Twinkle (Little Christmas Lights) to christen the show and it's Christmas all the way through this edition of the TOB. We'll hear classics from Charles Brown and Johnny Winter plus new holiday tunes from Keb' Mo' and HeavyDrunk.
Lonesome George and his Destroyers get us amped up for what should be an excellent show next weekend at the Saturday in the Park Festival. Also we've got a classic from Ray Charles and new muscic from Southern Avenue and Keb' Mo'.
Jontavious Willis caught the ear of Taj Mahal AND Keb' Mo' so they decided to help him out on his sophomore album. His debut record won an International Blues Challenge award last year for best self-produced album so having Mahal and Mo' on board to produce could only make things better. We've also got the first studio album from Jimmie Vaughn in quite awhile, and a new one from Kenny Wayne Shepherd too!
Betty Lavette covering Pink Floyd? Yes please! Hear that plus Dr. John with the Original Blues Brothers Band, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble and a great tune from Oklahoma roots rocker JD McPherson.
