Big Daddy’s Rock ‘N’ Blues
Wednesday Noon to 2 Alternating with The Frog Princess
For the last 15 years, Big Daddy has been exploring the connection between rock and blues. To paraphrase John Lee Hooker, “Rock, it all come from the blues. It’s just a different groove.” Artists found on this border include the Allman Brothers, Eric Clapton, Rory Gallagher, Canned Heat, Jimi Hendrix, Taj Mahal, Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Lee Hooker, Johnny Winter and Buddy Guy.
-Add some New Orleans funk from Dr. John, The Meters, Galactic, Walter “Wolfman” Washington and Professor Longhair.
-Mix in the three Kings (Albert, B.B. and Freddie), the Mississippi hill country stomp of the North Mississippi Allstars and R.L. Burnside.
-Stir in the Chicago Blues sound of Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Luther Allison, Son Seals and local artists such as Johnny O and Big Daddy Lee & the Kingbees.
-Season with new artists like Joe Bonamassa, Mike Farris, Grace Potter, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Indigenous and The Black Keys.
-Simmer from noon ‘til two and you will have the recipe for Big Daddy’s Rock and Blues.
People ask, is it Rock and Blues or Rockin’ Blues? The unequivocal answer is Yes.
Big Daddy tries not to play the same song twice and introduces his listeners to lesser known artists and obscure cuts from the more famous musicians. There’s so much good music out there, why play the same old songs?
