Satan and Adam (Sterling Magee & Adam Gussow) are a couple of New York blues musicians. After almost a decade’s absence from clubs and festival stages, they returned to action in the summer of 2008, playing selected dates throughout the Southeast in support of Gussow’s new book, Journeyman’s Road: Modern Blues Lives From Faulkner’s Mississippi to Post-9/11 New York (University of Tennessee Press) and a new live double LP, Word on the Street: Harlem Recordings, 1989. Joining them on tour was drummer David Laycock, a noted Tampa-area performer who has now become—as Magee and Gussow put it—“the third member of the duo.”

As Satan and Adam, Magee and Gussow were an integral part of the New York blues renaissance of the 1990s, along with Shemekia Copeland, The Holmes Brothers, Michael Hill and the Blues Mob. They burst on the scene in 1991 with their critically acclaimed debut release, Harlem Blues, featuring Magee on guitar, percussion, and vocals and Gussow on amplified harmonica. “so unbelievably raw and real,” wrote CMJ, “it’s hard even to describe it. Satan sounds like the heaviest and scariest parts of Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters reincarnated as a whole band and then somehow crammed back into the body of one man, and Adam fills in some piercing harmonica wails that seem to come from the same dark, primeval place as Shakey Horton’s or Little Walter’s. Harlem Blues was nominated for a Handy Award as “Traditional Blues Album” in 1991.

Pia's has fantastic food and the outside patio feels like you really are in Italy...

    Hi, Fyi, the lady at the Peninsula suggests for those who are staying for the music, that we get there by 6:30. So, an hour and a half should be plenty of time for dinner. Peninsula Inn is just basically across the street...
