Walter Trout at Famous Dave's

I saw him last month at the Famous Dave's Blues Fest and he really rocked. $8 cover charge. Here's a link:

A little more about him:

Trout's practical schooling in blues started when he arrived in Los Angeles in 1973 and got gigs behind Hooker, Big Mama Thornton, Finis Tasby, Pee Wee Crayton, Lowell Fulsom, Percy Mayfield and Joe Tex. In 1981 he joined the remaining original members of Canned Heat. But the real turning point was his tenure with British blues giant John Mayall. Trout became part of the Bluesbreakers' lineage of great guitarists along with Eric Clapton, Peter Green and Mick Taylor. Beginning in 1984 he shared six-string duties with Coco Montoya in Mayall's band, creating a flexible guitar dynamic that helped provide the Bluesbreakers a renaissance that returned the group to the apex of the international blues touring circuit.

    Sorry about that. You are correct Lori. I changed it above. I do have a table reserved and should be there by 8:15. I have 3 others coming from another group, so it should be a good turnout. I'll be wearing a black shirt and jeans. The table is under my name. I do have a fat lip, but I am going to make it. I promise it's not from a bar fight. LOL. I look forward to the show and meeting some more blues fans!

    Hello Jay,

    I like several others joining the group am wondering if the group is age sensitive?

    August 11, 2012

  • David T.

    Thanks Jay. It took me many years to get into Jazz, but I love it now. Smart idea for a group.

    I don't mind who joins. I would like to promote jazz and blues among younger people.

    Thanks. I know some groups are age sensitive. See you soon!

    Hi, Terri. I am not very young either so i say don't worry. If we find out we are too old we can just form our own old jazz. I hope to see you Saturday.

    Hi Terri. It's not my group. I am older as well. I did't notice the young part myself when I joined. If Jay only wants younger people I can start a new group for all ages. U are more than welcome to join us for Walter Trout!

    Hi, I noticed you're the "young" jazz group. Do you have an age range as I may be older than you'd prefer.

    I have a table for 10 reserved at 8:30. I should be there by 8:15. I'll update again on Friday

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
