Los Lobos – Granada Theater – Dallas, TX – Dec 1, 2010

Los Lobos Tin Can Trust

I’ve been enjoying the latest Los Lobos release “Tin Can Trust” quiet a bit. It’s got everything you could want in a new record from American’s most versatile rock band.   A Cesar ballad, a power three guitar attack track, some great Hidalgo accordion, and some near perfect Hidalgo guitar solo’s.   I love the groove they […]

Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble – New Orleans Jazz Festival – May 6, 1990

Stevie Ray Vaughan with Jimmy Vaughan at the New Orleans Jazz Festival

For the perfect show to resurrect this blog I had to go with the legendary Stevie Ray Vaughan.   With his incredible command of the electric guitar he resurrected blues music and brought it to the people.   He also came through a serious drug addiction to go on and play some of his best music.   Some of which is […]

Willie Nelson – PBS Soundstage – Chicago, IL 9.28.2009

Willie is plugging his soon to be released record Country Music.   I’ve been fired up for this release ever since […]

The Meters – The Kingfish Lounge – Baton Rouge, LA – 10.01.1976


“Feel good music, I’ve been told / Is good for your body, and is good for your soul.” It’s time for some feel good music, New Orleans style, to celebrate Fat Tuesday.   If this doesn’t get you moving, then I’m not sure what will. This outstanding recording is from right before The Meters broke up […]
