RJ Mischo's World Famous Blues Jam - 04/25 Edition

Last night was a fun night at the Mojo Lounge. RJ, Bob Welsh, Kedar Roy and June Core were the house band. As is customary, RJ kicked off the evening's festivities with a great first set consisting a few Sonny Boy Williamson (both John Lee Williamson and Rice Miller) and Little Walter tunes. He turned over the stage to Bob Welsh for a tune. Bob played a killer instrumental version of Memphis.

There were a truckload of guests in the house and RJ started to call them up. The first guest brought up before the break was the fabulous Wendy Dewitt. Wendy was sounding great as always. A harp player named Gino Bambino played a couple of tunes as well.

There was a short break.

Kid Andersen, Ryan Eric, Ray Figueroa, Artie Chavez (sporting a new pony tail and his lovely better half), Barrelhouse Solly I, Gino Baronelli, Bree, Don Yonder, Linda Martinez, E-Rock, Double G, Danny Denaro, Charlie Knight and a few others were all present and accounted for.

It was a very fun night.

I snapped a few photos. I captured some rare video of the enigmatic Double G being backed by the New Kingpins.
