Before passing on at too early an age, Mr. Roberts laid down this incredible performance at the 'shack. "Born in Mississippi" - A Jb favorite.

Mardi Gras Rollin' in "This City" - Steve Earle

Nice tune by Steve Earle. Folks back home are enjoying Mardi Gras but more than a few a bit bummed that the Saints released Jeremy Shockey (in final photo of this powerful video). Gotta love Carville. Throw me something, Mister.

Grace Potter, Joe Satriani & Friends

Turn the horses loose and watch them run... What an amazing performance we have here!

Grayson Hugh - For My Friend

Hey DeucE, I am adding a slight detour to my bucket list roadtrip up to the North Atlantic Blues Festival. Seems an hour or so outside of Hartford, one might stop in and say hello to a musician friend of ours. What do you say, you in?

Andrew Duhon - 'Cross the Pond

Made a quick trip home this weekend since the kids have today off. Arrived unannounced so I could surprise my folks. Headed out to UNO's home opener on the Lakefront (we won!) with hopes of getting an autograph for my son of a young phenom (Nick Schwaner) drafted last year and now with the Tampa Bay Rays. Brought a couple of balls with me on a hunch and guess who was there, mission accomplished.

Went in search of a Mia Borders' CD (one of Jb's Christmas posts) and while no luck, stumbled across a book on New Orleans by Jeff Duncan, with the book's introduction written by Deuce Mcallister. Turns out that it is an autographed copy signed by Mr. Duncan and Mr. Mcallister. A pretty good belated gift for Evan (I could tell by the expression on his face). Dad pulls through again.

Got a gift myself last night in the form of a tip from a good friend, seems he has a cousin who is a talented lyricist and musician, also someone to keep an eye on. See for yourself.

Tab Benoit - Sea Saint Sessions

Used to check out the Tab-ster every chance I got back in the day for the ladies came from miles around to see this handsome young cajun lad lay it down - made for a target rich environment every time. Day One must see - ladies and gents...
