Shakey Vick has an annual birthday bash where the blues greats Chris Youlden, Gordon Smith, Jimmy Appudurai Chua et al. come out of the wood-work, and circulate on and off stage playing 12 bar blues in between a few pints of ale, which lubricates the playing. I might post the venue for the next one. With all these prepackaged boy/girl bands out there, (has anyone noticed the tunes all have the same beat - maybe it’s the only one white folk can dance to) it’s nice to hear serious live music where one never knows what’s going to happen. Blues is like that, as long as you can play, you don’t have to rehearse - and the more you drink the better it gets.
