It was a very nice week. Tuesday night, I hit the World Famous Tuesday Night Blues Jam[TM"> at the Mojo Lounge hosted by RJ Mischo featuriing Steve Freund, Marc Carino and June Core. The first set by these guys was phenomenal featuring nothing but old school Blues.
To paraphrase a good friend of mine, I like Blues the old fashioned way and they do it the old fashioned way.
The past few weeks have featured a number of great guests that have been checking in to bid a fond farewell to RJ before he departs the Bay Area. This Tuesday should also be a good time. Come on down and celebrate RJ's final Tuesday night hoedown at the Mojo Lounge.
Friday night, I headed down to the Poor House Bistro to catch the sweet guitar stylings of the fabulous Steve Freund and his excellent trio consisting of Steve, Robi Bean and Randy Bermudes.
About a half of the people in the audience were musicians or hard core blues fanatic types. Steve and the boys sounded fantastic and Steve brought a number of great guests up to perform including: Suzy Tyler, Paul Durkett and Jimmy Dewrance. There were a number of guitar players lurking in the shadows as Steve put on a free guitar clinic. It was a really fun evening and the fine staff at the Poor House Bistro make a person feel at home.
