RIP ELwood

I'm deeply saddened to learn the KCOR head of security Elwood the dog has crossed the Rainbow Bridge.  Elwood was a good friend and loyal member of the station.

My heart goes out to Troy on his loss.

I'm still speechless over this

Tweed Funk

I was lucky to be invited to Indianapolis to spend some time with the guys from Tweed Funk, I had a great time and the guys treated me as on of their own.
Here is my review of the show:

The Slippery Noodle Inn Friday March 29th 2013, Indianapolis, IN

I walked into The Slippery Noodle, knowing full well that this was one of the premier blues clubs around,
Only to find that the blues had taken a back seat to Michigan State, Louisville, Duke & Oregon
Collectively known as the NCAA Basketball tourney.
Tweed Funk was forced to play 2 short sets between the games at half time before really getting things going.
Little by little you could see this decidedly pro basketball crowd start to change gears and become full fledged members of the Tweed Funk Nation
Between Smokey expertly working the crowd from behind the mic and the  bands High energy  infectious grooves,
The Basketball fans quickly became blues lovers.
One Michigan State fan said to JD, "Your making me feel good even though we lost!" That my friends is what the blues are all about!

JD, Smokey, Eric, Nick, John & Tim welcomed me into their inner circle for the day and treated me as one of their own.
I was able to see the true behind the scenes action and live the life of a blues musician for one day.
Thanks so much far having me along!


Revolution Design

Hey gang go check out my friend Rich's website, he's a graphic artist and extremely talented.

Rich created an awesome new logo for the show, check it out!




 This week my world was turned upside down, my sister passed away in her sleep, she was 4 days away from her 47th birthday.

This Saturday on Main Street Blues the show will be dedicated to her.

Kris, I love you & I miss you more than you could ever know!
