Saturday Night Blues

Saturday night was a really cool night musically.

"RJ Mischo @ the Poor House Bistro"

I dragged my family to dine at the Poor House Bistro. They just happened to have RJ Mischo and company performing on the patio. The weather was nice. The food was great. The entertainment was excellent. Half the people in the audience were musicians or related to them. RJ, Chris Andersen, Kedar Roy and Hans Bosse put on a great show.

"Phil Berkowitx & The High Rollers @ The Mojo Lounge"

Later in the evening, I went to the Mojo Lounge to see Phil Berkowitz and the High Rollers. Attendance was sparse. There were about 25 or 30 people in the bar.

There were three people listening to the music. I was one. One of the other two is a local harp player that sits in at people's shows and then leaves less than a microsecond after he gets off the stage. He couldn't have left faster, if he had been in the warhead of a North Korean missile on the 4th of July. The other person was his girlfriend. Phil should have made him sit for another set.

I hung out for a set and a half. Phil Berkowitz, Marvin Greene, Tim Wagar and Marty Dodson put on a really nice show of jump blues numbers including a bunch of Louis Jordan tunes. It was a fine time.
