Don't say I didn't warn you. If you missed it, get ready to start hearing about it all over the place.

What a great time last night at KC's. Pat Boyack, Red Young and Brian "H-Bomb" Ferguson put on an awesome show, with a number of guests setting in, including myself, Cheryl Arena, Andrea Dawson, Ponty Bone, Hash Brown (popping in to play before heading over for the first night of his brand new jam in North Dallas), and the one and only Mr. Joe Jonas, in MY opinion, the best blues vocalist in this (and probably every other) area. I was honored to get invited up, but damn, did it have to be right after Andrea? She's my friend and I love her, but she's a tough act to follow!

Joanna Iz, publisher of "Southwest Blues Magazine", was in the house, and I saw her taking pictures, so hopefully some of those will end up in the magazine. (The October issue is on the streets. Be sure to check out my reviews of the new Cheryl Arena and Aaron Burton CD "Good Old Wagon", and also a cool new CD, "Lucky 13", from Australian singer/guitarist Fiona Boyes.)

Every week I tell you on BIG TEXAS BLUES to go out and see some live blues and support the scene, and this show was a true example of just that. Much, much thanks to Jeff & Robin Horton, Swag (also known as Mr & Mrs Salty), Jim Weiss, and Chuck Nevitt, all of whom put their money where their mouths were and made the whole thing possible.

Quite the night of funky blues in the super cool juke joint setting of KC's. Wow.
