Drop the Coin Right Into the Slot

Actually, you don't need any money. The all-new NW Blues PIANORAMA jukebox is officially open. Hear portions of the January 10 Seattle performance, recorded live at the Triple Door.

Thank You Seattle, Tacoma and Port Townsend!

Last week's NW Blues Pianorama shows were a blast! DK Stewart, Kenny 'Blues Boss' Wayne and yours truly were backed by what is surely now the hardest working band in show business, the rhythm section from the Paul deLay Band.

All three venues were packed, and the crowds were amazing. We get to meet a lot of cool people at blues shows, but it usually happens at summer festivals, not in the dead of winter! The turnout at the Triple Door in Seattle -- on a midweek night in January -- was especially gratifying.

It was a real treat to join up with such great piano players. On the numbers where we all played together, all I can say is that I've never had so much fun onstage.

We're just gonna have to do this more often!

But He Doesn't Believe In Evolution!

In the mood for footage of presidential candidate Mike Huckabee -- in his previous capacity as governor of Arkansas -- being duped into congratulating Canada for "preserving your national igloo"?

I'll be playing some PIANORAMA shows this week in western Washington:
I'll be joined by two great piano players who both know how to get the butter from the duck: DK Stewart, a real "musician's musician," and the fabulous Kenny 'Blues Boss' Wayne.

The highlight should be the boogie-woogie summit when we all play together, backed by the award-winning rhythm section from the Paul deLay Band.

The show has received some nice press attention in Seattle and Tacoma.
