The late, great Muddy Waters once sang about a dream he had on his mind and when he woke up the next morning, not a thing could he find. Saturday night’s Project Blues Review was so good, we thought we may have been dreaming – then we found the photos on our camera to prove that we weren’t!
From the opening “back porch blues” set from Columbus native Sean Carney and harmonica ace Bob Corritore to an electrifying set from Carney and Houston guitarist Jonn Del Toro Richardson to the evening’s – and, dare we say, year’s? – main event in the Muddy Waters Tribute featuring former Waters band members John Primer and Bob Margolin on guitar along with guests that included Bob Stroger on bass, Kenny “Beedy Eyes” Smith on drums, David Maxwell on keyboards, Tom Holland on guitar, and Corritore on harmonica, things were all good in Columbus, Ohio, Saturday night!
We’ve got a whole lot more to show and tell you about the program in the coming days, but in the meantime, here’s a quick peek at some of what we took in.
