Robert is a splendid blues/slide guitarist, and Joanne Lediger and Simone are powerhouses on vocals. Their CD, ‘Revelation’ is climbing Blues & Gospel charts worldwide. I played on one track of the CD, and I’ve been doing a bunch of gigs with them. My longtime friend and associate Frank Pagano is the drummer, and that always helps things.

Cost: no cover! no minimum! tip jar!
I’ll play a whole lot of New Orleans rock and roll, and R&B, and blues, since that’s what they like most there (and Eric, the owner, likes to sit in on guitar), but you can’t keep me contained in any one genre for too long. Terrific barbeque and pizza. BYOB.
