I saw the Nighthawks in 1976 on frat row in College Park.  Going to see them tomorrow night at Jammin' Java.  Been picking up the harp lately and could use some Mark Wenner inspiration.

Anyone listen to Greta Van Fleet?  Just won the Grammy for best rock album. Very Led-Zep like.

Those guys are some real bums.  Easily one of the worst big time White People bands since Jet or Kings of Leon.  Awful, absolutely awful.

One of the coolest things about the trip to Detroit (other than checking progress on my new house) was picking up Bobby "Blue" Bland records for $2.  Guy was a goddamn talent.  Fook you with a Miata if you disagree:

Came across a program on WHUT last night.    Here's a description from their website:

"WE KNEW WHAT WE HAD: THE GREATEST JAZZ STORY NEVER TOLD chronicles the unrecognized history of jazz in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The hour-long documentary features the talents of international jazz legends George Benson, Ahmad Jamal, Stanley Turrentine, Billy Eckstine, Kenny Clarke, Art Blakey, Billy Strayhorn and Mary Lou Williams-all Pittsburghers. Using archival footage and photos, it also sheds light on the social conditions and historical events that conspired to make Pittsburgh one of the world's leading contributors to the legacy of jazz music."

Doesn't ring a bell but thanks for the listen.      Sounds like something Porky Chedwick would spin.

ABC used to have a show called "In Concert" on Saturday nights.    The only time I recall seeing them was on that show in the early '70s.    I never saw 'em live.

Did you ever catch any live Frank Sinatra performances in the 40's or 50's ?

Joe Bonamassa is coming to Richmond, so I watched a number of his clips on YouTube.

He strikes me as a poor man's SRV...and far less talented... 

Pass...

He's not the most charismatic guy, but he did work  during the years when no one was doing the blues. Important for that reason.

Did you catch any of his stuff with Beth Hart? I'd go to that concert.

I like blues a little more towards the rock end of the spectrum. A lot of these kids came back around in the early 2000s. I like them.

In the past two weeks we were about to listen to Marshall Crenshaw and the Bottle Rockets at the Birchmere, then last weekend a Neil Young cover band at the State in Falls Church, both shows very enjoyable.  We're going back for another bite of the Smithereens apple in June, with Crenshaw fronting them at the Ram's Head in Annapolis.

This coming Saturday I'm going to be listening to me - 6 months back or so I started sitting in on an acoustic music drop-in session once a month and I got recruited to gig with a couple of the guys.  We're striving to dominate the homeless shelter market.  I also got recruited to play a 14 song set of Irish songs this Saturday at a nearby church, we've had 6 practice sessions but it's now or never.   

Let that be a lesson to you, if you play guitar, there are tons of guitar players out there better than you.  But if you play harmonica and show up at a jam session, you might be a scarce resource, no matter how mediocre.    :-[
