The word on the street is that Kim Wilson was going to take the band that performed on the soundtrack of the movie Cadillac Records on a tour of the West Coast. That band included: Barrelhouse Chuck (piano), Billy Flynn (guitar), Richard Innes (drums) and Larry Taylor (bass). Joining them was Bay Area guitar talent, Rusty Zinn.

It was a fine evening filled with three hours of traditional postwar style Chicago Blues. I don't think I've ever seen so many harmonica players in one place before. I picked up one of Chuck's CD and had an opportunity to talk to one of the premier blues piano players alive. It was a really cool night.
It was almost marred by a near fatal accident on I-80. A pushing their disabled vehicle down the road was almost rear-ended by another vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed.
