SHOW # 296 – Live Uncut & Uncensored Conversations With “Musicians You Should Know”
The Jimmys are out of Wisconsin. The Jimmys have been tearing up stages with their blend of blues, soul, funk and R&B for nearly 10 years. Award-winning keyboardist/singer/songwriter Jimmy Voegeli has assembled an all-star lineup: Perry Weber, veteran guitarist/singer/songwriter; Mauro Magellan (Georgia Satellites) drums; John Wartenweiler bass. I’ll chat with Jimmy (and maybe more) about their journeys to find each other and where the band is heading while we listen to music from the new album, Hot Dish.
Chris Yakopcic has actually been on the show from the International Blues Challenge in the past, so it was time to bring him onto the Monday show…and with the release of his new album, The Next Place I Leave. I’ll chat with Chris about his road to the Blues and the new album and more.
Steve Howell heard Mississippi John Hurt at the age of 13 and things were never the same since. Throughout his life he has performed and learned and grew his skills. His latest album, Yes I Believe I Will, is recorded with a trio of friends affectionately known as the Mighty Men and Steve and I will explore his travels and music.
Georgie Bonds has a new album entitled Hit It Hard. Georgie will come back and we will chat about what he has been up to since his last visit. We’ll also explore the new album and the music Georgie is making.
