I recently had the honor of joining the rhythm & blues-rock band Vintage Trouble for a run of 13 shows in September and October. Instead of co-billing with another group, the members preferred to have me, the Soul Selector, open the concerts with a potent, all-vinyl mix of blues and soul while chatting up the audience. A member of the band even personally introduced me at every stop.
For the second day of LouFest, the weather was absolutely perfect for an all-day music festival in Forest Park.
Wakarusa brings out the best in people -- bands love it, campers love it -- everyone is having a grand ole' time.
Several years back I was lucky enough to head to Columbia for the Roots N Blues Festival with fellow KDHX photographer Nate Burrell.
