The Preachers did a great job of backing up me, Portland's Arthur "Fresh Air" Moore, and our pal Joe T. Cook. Joe and his family moved to the Seattle area recently from Minneapolis where he was a fixture on the blues scene for 25 years.
Our thanks to Zab and Eagles for hosting this gig, and all the fans for turning out! The Eagles has been hosting blues music in Ballard for over 20 years now. They provide a stage, lights, and a PA system - what a concept!
Here are some photos from the gig for you:
Let the games begin!

Blues fans Isis and Lauri. Hi guys!
