Growing up on the south side of Chicago suited Tom Holland well, its where he learned first hand from the blues worlds top players.
Holland has been a member of the legendary James Cotton’s band for about 11 years.
While not playing with Cotton, Holland fronts The Shuffle Kings, a true Chicago Blues band. Their album, No Fluff, Just The Stuff is filled with great music and Tom will join me to talk about his career and the album.
Gene Hardage is known as Sarasota Slim. He grew up in Sarasota, and has been playing music "longer than I'd like to admit, luckily this makes me somewhat legendary in certain circles", as Slim likes to say.
He toured with Lucky Peterson and earned his "Sarasota Slim" nickname from local legend Rock Bottom. His latest album is Get Up - Get Down and I will chat with Slim while we listen to the music.
