Harmony St. Charles

Great list! One thing though and as a fan you must already know. Before you can have Marcia Ball, John Cleary and Joe Krown(who are all faves of mine) there must be mention of the late great grandaddy of it all, Henry Roeland Byrd a.k.a. Professor Longhair.

Harmony - Thanks for your comment and interest. You are exactly right. I did a number of other posts on New Orelans music. Here is the one that list Professor Long Hair http://billives.typepad.com/portals_and_km/2004/07/new_orleans_mus.html - There are others, as well.

Raised on Fats, nurtured by Longhair, amazed by Cleary...we're out on the west coast, cats from New York, San Francisco,L.A....pumping out our version of New Orleans barrelhouse blues. The response is overwhelming. I'd be honored if fans of this style of music would check it out and give us some feedback. There's photos, bios's and samples from our CD's at porterhousebob.com. I realize that we're trying to live up to players of substantial vitality and originality, but in that vain we've work hard to breathe life into an artform that we truly love. Sincerely, Porterhouse Bob.
