Saturday Matinee – Steve Gulley & New Pinnacle, Christopher Ameruoso, Tab Benoit & Tommy Castro with Samantha Fish

Saturday, 24 March 2018

That’s Steve Gulley & New Pinnacle performing The Fiddle Player’s National Anthem in 2015(?). And yes, they got clogged by a buck dancer. “Orange Blossom Special” is probably the greatest train song ever, followed by the late Steve Goodman‘s “City of New Orleans.”

Nice 3-string electric cigar box slide git-fiddle from Christopher Ameruoso in 2015.

“Night Train” is a killer boogie jam by Tab Benoit, Tommy Castro & Samantha Fish recorded at The Birchmere, Alexandria, VA, 2014. Somewhere, John Lee Hooker is smiling.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Wind Chimes, Samantha Fish & The Bo Keys

Saturday, 2 September 2017

I found this both oddly fascinating and mildly disturbing. It’s an a/v collage from 2013 somewhere near Lake Erie, yet it’s also kind of an appropriate soundtrack for the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey, and for those survivors who haven’t yet fully realized what they’ve lost.

What happens once the news crews are gone? What happens once the reality sets in that you survived the ordeal, but you’ve lost everything? Our prayers are with you.


Now about those looters and scammers…

For a long time, this was THE signature song of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, and in some ways his 1956 hit was a blues parody. In January of 2014, Samantha Fish picked it up and jammed it right down our throats with no apologies. Killer version.

Loved this proto-funk theme, and I love the Bo-Keys for rocking the retro soul grooves that I grew up with.

Have a great Labor Day Weekend, folks, and we’ll be back tomorrow with more stuff than your imagination can even tolerate. Or not.

Saturday Matinee – Tanya and Dorise, Robert Cray & Samantha Fish

Saturday, 16 January 2016

Pink Floyd. In the rain. Wish you were here.

Tanya – Violin & Skates
Dorise – Guitar
Nathan – Tenor Banjo
Syd Barrett – Muse

Sometimes the Utoobage is great, sometimes it fails, but it still amazes me. I was looking for a live video of Robert Cray‘s “I Wonder,” but no dice. I’ll post this one anyway because it’s so sad and purty.

Lookout. The Prom Queen’s got a gun, and ya’ll better not call her a Prom Queen because Samantha Fish is gonna jam it down your throat, and here’s proof.

Have a great weekend, folks, see you tomorrow for more stuff.

 

Saturday Matinee – Rowan Atkinson, The All Night Long Blues Band, Samantha Fish & Satchmo

Saturday, 9 January 2016

Rowan Atkinson plays air drums with brilliance.

The All Night Long Blues Band at The Cat Head Store in Clarksville Mississippi, 2013. There’s something both absurd and awesome going on there, and I like it.

This one’s a jawdropper. Samantha Fish kills it on a 4-string cigar box guitar. From Wiki:

During the summer of 2013, Fish was called up on stage to play with a skeptical Buddy Guy who was so impressed with her playing on the guitar, he declared with a beaming smile to his audience, “When this kind of shit happens, I’ll play all night!”

Let’s wrap it up with some Satchmo. This 1933 version of “Dinah” was some great jump blues.

Have a great weekend and we’ll roll again tomorrow.
