RJ Mischo's World Famous Blues Jam - 04/19 Edition

Tuesday night was a great night at the Mojo Lounge. RJ had returned from his most recent European tour. The house band for this evening consisted of RJ Mischo, Kenny "Blue" Ray, Kedar Roy and Hans Bosse.

I think a busload of harmonica players on some sort of field trip must have stopped outside. There were at about a dozen in attendance including:

Scott "Phil Harmonica" Hickman, Barrelhouse Solly, Birdlegg, Phil Berkowitz, James Reed, Dennis Carelli, Kevin Walker and the enigmatic Double G. Other performers were the electrifying E-Rock, Scott Duncan, Gino and JB Davis.

Blue Ray could have produced a video last night on how to back a harp player. He was in the zone and had those subtle Robert Jr Lockwood runs working overtime.

The highlight of the night had to be Birdlegg. It had been a while since the last time that I had seen him. He sounded better than ever. Off the hook, if you will.
