Some Studio, Some Live,
Some Video

Whenever we get a chance to lay some things down, we head over to Singing Dog Studios and record until we can’t.

This is the result.

Video

Every so often someone takes some video of some of our live performances. Here are a few:

We are playing more and more festivals, and we love it. In June of 2022 we played at the Bricktown Blues Festival in Oklahoma City, OK. It was so much fun and the crowd was great. Also gave me a chance to show off the nimble fingers of our bass player Casey “Curly” Saunders!

We were honored to be selected as a musical guest for the 2022 PrideFest Celebration at Scissortail Park in Oklahoma City, OK. It was so much fun and we made a lot of new friends. We’re proud to be allies!

Here we are at the Bricktown Blues Festival in Oklahoma City, OK. I love playing this custom built cigar box guitar built by the luthier Kevin Patrick. It’s so much fun to play and sounds so good, despite being two license plates nailed to a square box (an Oklahoma plate on the front, and an Iowa plate on the back). I don’t know how he does it, but he is creating art with each new build.

Here’s a video of our live performance at the Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale, MS during the Sunflower River Blues Festival on August 14, 2021. We had a BLAST and want to thank everyone at GZBC, especially Tameal for being so wonderful!

We were part of the outdoor summer concert series. What a blast this was! Even in the midst of the pandemic, being outdoors, masking up, being careful, made it possible to have an outdoor concert. Thank you Yukon!

Nothing quite like playing at the blues club that is as the heart of it all! This was from the stage at Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale, MS.

Studio Recordings

Every once in a while we get a chance to lay down some tracks at Singing Dog Studios, but never seem to have time to take them any farther. Go ahead and give them a listen, they just might be on the next Big Train and the Loco Motives release!

Upcoming Albums

In addition to our live CD recorded at the Ground Zero Blues Club from August, 2021, we are continually in and out of the studio as we build a vault of recorded material just aching for a new way to be heard.

“He was such a happy boy. I don’t know how he got the blues.”
