If you want the real blues baby, you'd better call Little Freddie King, The minute Freddie straps on his guitar and strikes up his gnarled chord and drummer "Wacko" Wade makes his presence known with a definative cymbal crash, this lean, mean, swampy aggregation of gut-bucket wild men transforms the poshest of venues into a back-of-town beer joint.
Sean Riley: The Holy Water of NOLA
Sean Riley is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist living in New Orleans. Referencing roots Americana music as well as the Delta Blues, Riley’s music explores the history of Southern Blues with contemporary themes throughout.
In February 2019 she released her first album on Nola Blue Records, "Blues In My Blood," which has already received several accolades, including a Global Music Award for Best Blues/Rock Album and Best Female Vocalist. She is joined by her cousin Eric Johanson, for a very personal family project in celebration of the blues that is so undeniably in their blood..
When the word “blues” comes up for discussion in New Orleans musical circles, the name Smoky Greenwell is certain to be mentioned. Since taking up the harmonica in the 1970s, he has performed with a virtual who’s who among nationally and locally renowned musicians, in addition to fronting his own blues bands for many years..
Jeff's unique style of Blues incorporates the style of Memphis combined with the mixture of New Orleans rhythms. "It is Memphis barbecue meeting up with New Orleans gumbo," quips Chaz.
The music of Lil’ Red and Big Bad is unique to New Orleans, a mix of blues, R&B and rock’n roll delivered with a lot of soul. When you add the vocal energy and stage performance of Nancy “Lil’ Red” Gros, it’s no mistake that this band made it to Memphis for the 2011 International Blues Challenge, and opened the main stage for the 2012 French Quarter Festival in New Orleans.
You can’t miss Ghalia Volt. She’s the natural-born rock star with the leather jacket and wicked grin, leaning from her album sleeve to offer you a hit on her hip flask. But the real Southern blend ain’t in the bottle, it’s on the songs. Following the New Orleans flavours of her 2017 breakthrough, Let The Demons Out, this year sees the acclaimed Brussels-born singer-songwriter dive deeper into the American South, recording in the hill country of Mississippi, where she shared her songs with a cast of esteemed local musicians and caught the flying sparks. This is Mississippi Blend: an album as fiery and throat-burning as Delta moonshine.
Powerful, heavy & bluesy ! People say it's the toughest sounding band around. The band with the original, raw sound hails from New Orleans, LA. Johnny leads the ensemble and has racked up 11 records, countless festival appearances, over 30 European tours, a feature in a 2013 film as well as recording for the BBC in London, German National Radio in Bremen, and Belgian National Radio in Brussels.
"Almost sounding like no blues you've ever heard before !" - MidWestRecord Review
JMMBs music is a blend of new and old at the same time. Roots run deep as Johnny spent 16 years (and Smoke 6 years) at the blues' shrine "Babe's & Ricky's Inn" under the tutelage of Laura Mae "Mama" Gross. She taught them the only color that mattered was blue and encouraged them to develop their own sound. The "new" is living in the present and absorbing sounds coming from music they enjoy Today! The results are apparent at every show and every recording "Mama's Boys" make.
Great place to hear blues, and our favorite was Ed Wills and Blues 4 Sale! Their music was fabulous and they were very entertaining. Bass player Charles Baker walked through the crowd as well as outside while playing - a crowd pleaser!!
