Last night on Blues Breakers we honored Buckwheat Zydeco on the anniversary of his birth. Buckwheat died just this past September. We also played some Buddy Guy because we’re gearing up for all of his shows coming to Buddy Guy’s Legends this January. We closed with a Willie Dixon song from the new album by the Big Head Blues Club led by Big Head Todd. Hey, it’s all right here.

JIMMY VIVINO – MONEY WHIP ME A few months ago, when Jimmy knew he was coming to town for his Fab Faux show at House Of Blues on Saturday, and he asked Kate Moss to put a band together to do a blues show the night before. He just wanted to jam on some Bluesw. It was his idea to call it the “Kate Moss 4”. So we have John Kattke on keys, Marty Binder on drums and Felix Reyes’ on bass and guitar. So the “KM4″ was born.
