greetings from switzerland

i flew over to perform at the international dixie and blues festival-may 4th- in zurich. i'll be performing there with my 'international soul band': kelvin bullen, hani ali, sebi niessner, and carlos cort. we did a concert the day after i arrived and "the machine" is definitely pumping! we're ready to kick ass and take names!

although this is a blues gig, anyone who knows me knows that even my blues is funky; a by-product of having been born and raised in louisiana/the mississippi delta, no doubt- but then anyone who knows anything about the blues knows that today's blues ain't nothing but soul music... just listen to any southern blues radio station; it all sounds like memphis soul from the 60s & 70s.

i'll post fotos from the show, after i get back to louisiana next week. be sure to check for upcoming dates on my website under 'news'...
