2017 King Biscuit Festival in Helena Arkansas was a great festival



 Playing the King Biscuit Blues Festival was a real joy for us. For years we've heard about this festival and place; but getting to experience it was an honor. The people who put this event are the best . From the time we got there till we left, they took good care of us.  This was my second year playing the Biscuit, this time I played on the Lockwood Stackhouse Stage.  It is named after two delta buesmen:  Robert Jr. Lockwood and Houston Stackhouse, Sr.

Last year I played for the Delta Cultural Center 2016 Front Porch Blues Bash on the Front Porch Stage.  The FPBB is also the recipient of the "Arkansas Delta Byways 2016 Cultural Heritage Award".  The 2016 FPBB DVD was released in July 2017 and can be purchased from DCC via email:  info@deltaculturalcenter.com or by phone at (870) 338-4350 during their business hours of 8:30-5:00p.m. Tuesday-Saturday.  I recommend to any Blues lover to check out this festival in the mouth of the Delta right on the banks of the mighty Mississippi River, Helena, AR. 

More Blues Resurrection


I feel really hopeful today. I woke up feeling refreshed thinking clearer. I don't know what happened, but I do know it's been awhile since I thought this clearly and felt so refreshed.  I took some time to think and to visualize and maybe that did me good. I'll call it healing time. That time away from my computer was healing to me. My vision seems to be renewed.


I’ve got a new image for my music and have renewed my commitment to serve my fans. I'm willing to give away more of myself. I want to read more tracks in the snow. I feel like I'd like to record all types of songs whatever type of music that comes through me. Maybe someone will be able to use some of it


My patrons are beginning to grow and I am wanting to give them more. I want to offer the music to fit the many different situations they have in their lives. You know everyone has different moods and is nothing wrong with having music to fit and listen to whatever mood we might be in. Something I haven't done much is capture all of the moods that come through my life and set them into short stories and songs. I feel pretty good .And I look forward to getting back in the recording studio, the blues room and get busy.  I'm starting now.


ChickenBone Reunion Clucking Again


  The heavy rain forecast had everyone scared to move tonight but the folks we had seemed to enjoy the show. We had some tough moments working thru the new material where we stumbled a bit but we made it thru. I always feel ok when folks get on the dance  floor , its a good indication that things are OK.








  Lexx started this whole thing coming into the Blues room calling me the daddy of her Blues Baby. She claims to have gotten pregnant from tapping hearts on the periscope screen . I was like Oh OK !! I told her I hope she is pregnant by me because we gone be rich after we sue Periscope and Twitter . It is really helarious to think about getting pregnant from streaming . 

  One morning I got a text message from Ms Biscuithead of this funny ass baby laughing and eating a bowl of cereal and the message said Not Da Mama, I said aww hell. Thats a lil biscuit head baby dont tell me yo ass got pregnant too. She said it was Lexx and my baby and I should let the VIP see it to see who is the Parents  of this lil funny ass child. Who do you think the  parents are.?  Looks like Chip Tacas and Mia to me .



  I told the fans in the Periscope Blues room that I was going to get to the bottom of the Ike and Tina story. I thought it has always been a interesting story about their careers. I had a friend who was a guitar player for Ike , he always spoke highly about Ike's skill as a business man and band leader. Looking at their journey im proud to see their 2 grammy awards and 5 nominations . Its unfortunate to have that be overshadowed by domestic abuse and coke abuse . Just look at the power they brought to the stage. 

  Ike was a talent scout early in his career and he sure got him a star when he discovered My Tina. Check the out on this Nutbush .





  I had a lot of fun working with these students over at the Jr college . They were really into their thing . Some of the im sure will go on to be good engineers. I hope to work with them more in the future and would recommend them to other artist looking for recordings . These students are pretty serious about it. Check them out. What do you  think about Calhoun's program ?

Amendment XXl Huntsville fun


   I enjoyed working at this place downtown Hsv. Ive been getting a bite lately that they want me to come back soon. Im ready . I found this video in my archives and wanted to share it . 

Green Street Market Huntsville AL Boogie Down


  Green Street market is a really nice farmers market in downtown Huntsville Al . I played there a few times and found this video . I had forgotten all about this tape and when I saw the kids playing the tub I was smiling again. I remember the look on their faces getting to hear the Blues . They were all over it. I remember when I was a kid and how much it means to be around music and even get to make some noise. You never know what it will mean to them as they grow up . Like John Lee Hooker says , 'Its in them and its got to come out."
