  Michael Burks plays St. Louis

Michael Burks
  So close but yet so far...has to be the way that Michael Burks felt during the past WC Handy blues rewards for the 2004...a nominee of this year blues rewards...but as far as I am concern..he will always be NO. 1 here in the St. Louis area and to me and the blues fan's..he is a blues brother to us all....and the night that he performed at BB's ...he put on a show for all to remember....and inspire then to come back and listen to his deep down feeling blues...and when he plays one of his many guitars he plays each guitar with a different feeling which he makes sings with every drop of sweat from his brow which the sound that comes straight from his soul....there is no doubt that Michael Burks can entertain with the best of them..just asked his audiences...

Michael Burks was born in Cameden Arkansas, in 1957 and he started playing a guitar at the age of 2. By the time he was the age of 6, he started performing on stage with his cousin in his home town of Cameden. His father also a blues artist and played alongside such greats as Sonny Boy Williamson II...as you can see it runs in the family...

Michael Burks records on the Alligator Record label and has several cd's out there...and you can check him out on his website....Michael Burks....

I have had the pleasure of photographing him...and he is one of a kind, very down home person and I never miss him when he is in town....because I am never disappointed. I got to know Michael and the band...and they all deserve the recognition of being one of the best blues bands around today....and I will be waiting for his next arrival.....thank you for a great time Michael....
