Scream & Stream on Halloween!

Updated: Nov 10, 2020

When you get a call to be part of the band with Joe Bonamassa and Jimmy Vivino for a special streaming LIVE Blues show for Halloween, you take it! To make things even better, it was an all-star band to benefit The Baked Potato - a local blues/jazz club here in the Burbank, CA area.

I packed up my Hohner Harmonicas, my HarpKing amp, and my leopard facemask and headed out to do the show. I must say, I had a blast hanging with all the folks including band members and special guests Mike Merritt, James Wormworth, Kat Dyson, Josh Smith, and Sarah Rogo.

No audience of course (at least in person) due to the pandemic, but we were streaming around the globe with songs ranging from Albert King's "Born Under a Bad Sign", Sun Ra's "Unmask the Batman", to songs from Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf and my own "Count On Me".

All in all, it was a scary good time with these talented folks, and glad I was able to play harmonica with this fine group of all-stars. I look forward to the next time I get to hang and make music with some - or all - of them again!
