ROCKIN' THE BLUES AND SHARIN' THE NEWS!

Legendary Texas Guitarist & Songwriter - #TheLastGreatBluesbreakerGuitarist

Music Monday - LIVE from Montreal with John Mayall!

Most people might assume that playing such a prestigious festival like the Montreal Jazz Festival with John Mayall is a problem-free adventure but....there is a behind the scenes disaster in the making when my Fender Twin amp blew.  In under 45 seconds, the stage hands grabbed a smaller Fender amp with one 12" speaker, I plugged in and started this song.  You won't believe the results!  Around the 10 minute mark in the video, the amp really shows what it's got!  Thanks to the great festival stage crew who pulled this off! 

Who would have thought one 12" speaker could sound like that?  Talk about rockin' the blues and playing it loud!  John Mayall sounded better than ever on vocals and harmonica!   This was a totally AWESOME night of music, adventure and fun!
