Look here for a live up-to-the-minute report of the concert
Whoa that's not Charlie Musselwhite, he looks more like Charles Barkley.
This on the scene reporter isn't doing the best job. Charles Barkley is
not on the stage, but a reverend is. They just played a deep nand
soothing duet to finish the Blind Boys set. ..
UP NEXT COUNT BASIE'S ORCHESTRA
The Blind Boys are jammin' a bit more purposefully now... winding it down
but still laying down beautiful soulful riffs and jams. God Bless Us
All! The gospel/soul groove is alive and well. Charlie Musselwaite is
joinin them on stage for an encore.
How many of the Boyz are really blind??? Buzz around here is that three
of them are. FACT There are seven musicians in this band.
This is a beautiful finish to an incredible celebration of Martin Luther
King Jr.'s birthday. The House of Blues is not only one of the hottest
clubs in L.A. but they are really giving back to the community. They
have, already in their short existence, given a guided
tour ( field trip) of the House of Blues to 5,000 elementary and
secondary students. They provide an educational experience, showing
youth how much history there is in the traditions of the Blues from slave
songs to B.B. King. Cool.
The club is filled and rockin' with excitement... The boys sing upbeat
R&B to true gospel odes to Jesus
Clarence Fountain is presented an award for outstanding service by the
House of Blues Foundation.
The Five Blind Boys of Alabam sing Gospel....a combination of rich
harmonies and soulful insturmental music makes for a very moving experience..
Wish you could be here!!!
Charlie Musselwhite plays a moving blues set. What can I tell you
man...it's the blues it churns your insides out....Charly played a short
set with guitarist JJ Holliday.
Next up The Five Blind Boys of Alabama
The house is a-rockin'!!! The Five Blind Boys of Alabama have
been tearing up this House of Blues. Sweet soulful organ licks that move
the soul. Our butts are groovin'....
