Gordon Park Grooves

Tell your neighbors, take the kids, bring a picnic! GORDON PARK GROOVES WENESDAY, AUGUST 6, 7-9PM in Gordon Park (Humboldt & Locust) FEATURING: Little Jimmy & The Blackbirds Guitar-slinging blues? Texas-style blues? Southern-man blues? Whatever term such an approach goes by these days, theres no disputing that various forms of blues and blues-rock have been around a long time – from the days of T-Bone Walker to Albert Collins and Albert King to Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan to Jonny Lang. Sticking to the tenets of blues rock on the local front is guitarist Jimmy James, as in the name of the trio, Little Jimmy & the Blackbirds. -BY NICK CARTER, Excerpt from an article – Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. ALSO: Pick up a copy of the August issue of the Riverwest Currents and/or a FREE COPY of our brand new RIVERWEST DIRECTORY, a project coordinated by Suzanne Zipperer.
