John Lee Hooker Jr : Gangsterz Of Funk

Loud greasy sizzling John Lee Hooker Jr warns "don't stand too close to the stage or you'll get burned."

Blues gangster JLH Jr was born to do this and probably came out of Mrs. Lee Hooker's womb wearing dark sunglasses.

The man can sing the blues, he's got the funk.
Gangster + Funk = Gunk. Greasy bluez gunk. On a Saturday night.

At Harvelle's of course.

Kirk Fletcher on a Monday : Easy like a Sunday

Kirk is the Vans™-wearing new school blues cat who shreds, throws down and brings some of the best players around to jam. He has a new CD, and his Monday night residency at Harvelle's has become a must-see stop for fans of r&b, soul and blues. Kirk Fletcher's band includes James Gadson on drums, Paulie Cera on vocals and sax, Luke Miller on keys, and tonight, "Ready" Freddie Washington on bass.
