MISSISSIPPI BLUES



According to the 930 club in jackson mississippi (dubbed the number one blues club in america by the new york times, the london times, a ton of other newspapers and tv stations, and most importantly THEMSELVES) 'in a world full of colors, they specialize in just the blues'.

As someone who loves the blues, and the culture and hijinx that comes along with blues performers, this was one of the most entertaining and exciting live shows ive seen in years. Featured last night was jacksons own Billy Winston and performing the second set was the wonderful Jackie Bell, who when asked why shes so good at wailing on the harmonica remarked "as a woman in the blues, youve gotta know how to suck and blow" Their back up band, from boston Massachusetts, played their instruments like someone was about to take them away from them.

I mean, even the beers were cheap. If youre in jackson mississippi, the home of the blues, stop by the 930 club. You wont regret it.
