What Did You Miss This Week? (Week 289 #332)

Recital Prep!!!

We spent the evening rehearsing recital songs and going over Joe's Recital Check List. You can check that out and see the full Recital line up here.

Jim Lucas Show!!!

Jim Lucas performed a terrific set of his originals set to Joe's instrumentals this past Friday at Northeastern Illinois University's Faculty Symposium.  Here's a video from the show of him doing

Retiree Blues

Satan And Adam Video Released!!!

- This in from Adam Gussow:

"Here's a holiday treat: Thunky Fing Rides Again, the first official music video from blues duo Satan and Adam.

My longtime blues partner, Sterling "Mr. Satan" Magee, is recovering from a minor stroke in his rest home down in Florida, but his joyous spirit is alive and well on this harmonica instrumental from our 2011 release, Back in the Game.  He plays guitar, supported by Jerry Jemmott on bass and Rodger Stephan on drums.

The video features the extraordinary dancing of Kaleb "K. Mel" Mitchell (above left), a Louisiana-born undergrad at the University of Mississippi.  Remember the name; you're sure to hear more of it.

The kid at stage center is my son, Shaun, age 6.  This is his big-screen debut.

Here's the link:  Thunky Fing Rides Again video."
