Tonight, BigHarmonicaBob.org plays at the Americana Cafe (think "diner"!) on Broadway & Atlantic in Long Beach. I broadcasted this LIVE via ThePrimeSpot.com last Friday (visual only, I had static probs with the audio - yes it was a "test"!). Check this out as well, Feb 28th. If someone wants to host this event, let me know...

Your Friends at the Southern California Blues Society
The 2009 LA JUKE JOINT BLUES FESTIVAL to be held on the last Saturday of this month (Feb. 28) at the Cellar in Long Beach.
The first two incarnations of this festival were performed in 2003 and 2005 for the Santa Barbara Blues Society and were hugely successful, with over 300 blues fans in attendance.
Those festivals featured real deal, yet obscure blues greats from the South Central scene including: Sonny Green, Joyce Lawson, Mary Dukes, Bobby Warren, Jamie Powell, Missisippi Bo, Dr. Hank, Dangerous Darryl, Curtis Jack Griffin, Hollis Gilmore, Ray Brooks, Joe Kincaid's Soul Brothers and Southside Slim.
This year's line up is fantastic: Curtis Jack Griffin, Sonny Green, Bobby Warren, Marguaret Love, Mississippi Bo and a dozen other amazing guest singers backed by the Cadillac Zack Band featuring Deacon Jones.
Now let's talk BBQ. The Cellar literally has the best pork ribs you'll ever taste and the prices are extremely reasonable. Come on down! This is gonna be an authentic juke joint blues party not to miss.
