We had a great time at our show at Fat Fish Blue last Friday! We celebrated Jason’s birthday and invited our new friend Joanna Berkebile to sit in on vocals. Her rendition of GOT MY MOJO WORKIN’ has to be heard to be believed!
Also check out the family dancing to the music on and off the stage. Pretty cool seeing three generations getting their groove on! MRKing Images was there to capture it all on film.
A first time event. The American Blues Scene Magazine has tapped three of the next generations blues champions to caravan through the state of Missouri! The Mojo Roots, Jason Vivone and the Billy Bats, and The Bottoms Up Blues Gang will be bringing three incredible live shows every night through the heart of Missouri!
Thursday the 25th at Knuckleheads in KC, Friday the 26th at Mojo’s in Columbia and Saturday the 27th at BB’s Jazz, Blues and Soups in St. Louis, 3 bands, 3 towns, 3 of the best live music venues in the state.
“The Kansas City Blues Society is probably very happy to have Jason Vivone and The Blues Bats representing them. After all, these guys do stick to the dusty blueprints set down decades ago by the musical forebears they love and admire. So they come out with their own independent release that sees them paying homage to the visionaries instrumental in their artistic vision of how the blues should be approached. Of course that’s a good thing but can be overlooked when there are blemishes in the mix.” (more…)
