This coming Saturday night, January 31st, at 11pm, The Blues will begin with a just-released collaboration of Gov't Mule and John Scofield from their new cd, Sco-Mule. "Hottentot" will be followed by Miles Davis's "Tutu" and Joe Cocker's "Respect Yourself." The second set will feature Keb'Mo, Eric Bibb, and Cyndi Lauper.
And, the third set is a commentary by music historian Dave Lewis on the musician Bix Beiderbecke who was born in 1903 in Davenport. Dave's research details Bix Beiderbecke's connections to the Cincinnati area.
David Lewis has a commentary on the life and times of Cincinnati musician “Ragtime” Bob Roberts. Bob Roberts was born in Cincinnati on April 27, 1871. He became a pioneer in most of the things he tried: ragtime composer, recording artist, stand-up comedian and early radio comic. Later in his career, he worked for WCKY. He died of a heart attack in his home at 3671 Vine Street on January 21, 1930 and was buried in the family plot at Spring Grove Cemetery.
