Swamp blues…. Garage Blues… Classic Grooves… Future Grooves…

…The Big Groove


July 3-July 9 2015

It’s an Accidental Playlist this week…accidental because I realized how many songs were built around a simple primitive beat, often evoking the ghost of Bo Diddley. Definitely an edition of Future Blues here.

The Zombie Garden Club (Nashville TN) remain In Residence, along with Samantha Martin & Delta Sugar (Toronto) who take The Beat and strip everything down to just an amazing three part harmony. Flows into the loops and reverb jungle of future blues from Hard Garden (Seattle Wash) who put everything INTO that beat.

More future blues from The Heritage Blues Orchestra (NYC, N.Y.), The Damned & Dirty (Zandaam, Holland!), and Schuld shed& Stamer (Vancouver B.C.) who kick out Midnight Special like you’ve never heard before.

Delta Moon (Atlanta GA) and William Elliott Whitmore (Montrose Iowa) and JJ Grey (Jacksonville FL) and Othman Wahabi (Vancouver B.C.) bring prairie dirt and lament to more country blues, while Cheryl Lescom & The Tuscon Choir Boys (Kitchener OT) just flat kick it out.

And in the middle of all these grooves, New York blues icon Michael submitted a track to The Big Groove full of social commentary that is a MUST listen. And just to show that The Big Groove crossroads flow in any and all directions, we take you home with country tribute stomp of The Mighty Cash Cats (Ventura Cal.)
