Administration & Announcements / Merry Christmas everyone.
« on: December 23, 2016, 01:39:46 PM »
Let's hope we can more folks being involved on the site in the new year.   I've had a crazy year and didn't get nearly as much recording time as I'm used to.

Have a great new year and I'll get a post out in the next couple of weeks.

Thanks Beelz, et al for the BT's and thanks again Mr Beall.


Administration & Announcements / Jamming with a member of Downchild
« on: July 20, 2015, 03:15:54 PM »
Good night at Grossman's Tavern in Toronto last night.   Grossman's is where Downchild Blues Band used to play.  Jeff Healey also got his start doing the very same Sunday night jam that I go to there.   Got to play with the bass player (Gary Kendall) from Downchild last night.  Even did Flip, Flop and Fly with him.  ;D

" The Downchild Blues Band was formed in Toronto in 1969 and continues to perform today.  The band's international fame is partially due to three of its songs, the originals "I've Got Everything I Need (Almost)" and "Shot Gun Blues", and its adaptation of "Flip, Flop and Fly", all from its 1973 album, Straight Up, being featured on the first Blues Brothers album, Briefcase Full of Blues (1978). "

I read a some great critiques of this place.  Oh so true  :o

" Pure dive bar bliss since 1943.
Hot, sweaty, crowded, loud blues band and full of drunks dancing. Lots of hooting and hollering. Soaking wet floor and bar.
My dad used to drink there in the 60's and I don't think much has changed since then.
Had beer then went home and took a shower."

" The food is not very good.
The beer selection is.
The staff was attentive and friendly.
The crowd is sultry, jovial, friendly & scary all at once. "

I'm working on one tomorrow, but I hope to have some company other than Just Joe, Ben and myself.

I finally got time to post one yesterday and it was gone by today     

Please and thank you.



I am my own backing band on this one...hehehe


Hope you all have a great Christmas and wishing all of you a very healthy and prosperous 2014.    I know the site is slow, but the stuff out there just keeps getting better and better!!  I still love posting a song here.  Gets my creative juices flowing and I end up with original lyrics that I can work with.  Been doing more 3 and 4 song sets at the jams I attend, mostly original songs.  I also do My Babe and Tuesday  nights, we do a killer version of Low Rider.  Really figuring out how to lead a band, count in, giving them the chord progression and mostly, trying to remember my own damned lyrics while singing and playing harp.  Helloooooo.....loving it..........   :)

Thanks for the music and inspiration.  Also big thanks for Rick for this great site and to the bt authors, especially Bob Millard.  Without you all, the music would stop!!

Just threw a couple of quickies up on youtube.  Studio and basement reno still ongoing, but nice to have a beautiful, open, light filled, 12 foot high ceilinged playing spot to work in now.  So Just had to celebrate.

Thanks to Beelz and Frosty for the use of their tracks.
