Illinois Blues Festival September 5, 2015

 

Spirit of Peoria

It was a beautiful day in Peoria at the Illinois Blues Festival on September 5, 2015. I had just finished my workshop, Jazz Voicings For Blues Piano And Guitar, and I was ready to play. The Spirit of Peoria riverboat paddled by.

I had a blast. I played the first half of my set solo and then filling out the Merry Pranksters' roster for the day Chris "Stinger" Stevens and Tom Beck joined me on stage. Thanks to Mike Thurman for shooting video of my set.

Chris and Ron Roling gave a blues guitar workshop and then we were Putting It All Together, a regular jam session. Joined by Bob Roling, drums, and then Kristy Nichols, vocals, we were cooking. Our repertoire came from Freddie King, Junior Wells, Carlos Santana, Johnny Cash, Paul Butterfield, and Frank Frost. Now that's the blues.
