RJ Mischo's World Famous Blues Jam - 01/30 Edition

Double G

This past Tuesday was an exceptionally historic edition of RJ Mischo's World Famous Blues Jam at the Mojo Lounge. RJ opened the show with his fabulous band which included: Kid Andersen, Marc Carino and June Core.

After a great opening set, RJ asked Kenny "Blue" Ray, Ray Figeroa and Artie Chavez to the stage. They play some great Texas-styled Blues. Next up was Lara Price, Laura Chavez and Scott Miller.

After the previous set, the musical bar was set high for the return of Double G and The New Kingpins. After a twenty year sabbatical sponsored by the federal government, Oakland bluesman Double G made his return to the stage backed by his band, The New Kingpins. Double G ripped through a series of selections from his first recording since 1979 entitled "Brunswick Blues."

It was a great evening of music, fun and frolic down at the Mojo Lounge.
