See other updates & background on the show here.

For more info on these great ensembles, please check their links: Eve & the Exiles, Churchwood and the Box Kickers. You can read about the Murder Ballad Show on this site on my GIGS page, mostly. I am particularly excited about reviving BigFoot Chester at these tributes for several reasons. I mean, even their name is a tribute to the Mighty Wolf (who was born Chester Arthur Burnett and he wore size 18 shoes), and they were just a great band. See a discography here and a video here. For this show, that band will consist of Walter Daniels (vocal, sax, harp), Davy Jones (guitar), Bill Anderson (guitar), Tom Lewis (drums), Brad Fordham (bass), and myself on six string bass.

Have I mentioned that the fabulous Izzy Cox will be doing a duet with me on “Back Door Man” and also giving you a lethal “Spoonful” of blues? Well, it bears repeating. She’ll be singing with the Murder Ballad Show ensemble. … More details next time!
