March Madness – the final four to the two best, Illinois and North Carolina. For us blues folks it was the Hot Buttery Biscuits of Blues and the Rich McDonough Band.

Hot Buttery Biscuits of BluesWith family in tow we were able to catch most of the Biscuits. Man are they smokin’ or what? They treated the basketball going fans to hot blues with tastes of Albert Collins, Allman Bros, Stevie Ray, Elvin Bishop and ZZ Top along with a long playlist of great blues tunes. They played them all well. Larry was sportin’ a new fretless Jazz Bass, hmm looks familiar, Dave held nothin’ back playing electric, killer slide and vocals that were – awesome! Rex kept good time. The Biscuits seem to have a lot of fun and get the audience movin’ and feelin good. I foresee these fellows becoming the ambassadors of the St. Louis Blues!

Hot Buttery Biscuits of BluesOn the flip side with the Mississippi River as a backdrop facing a packed field Rich McDonough, Les Moore, Sharon Foehner and Joe Pastor of the Rich McDonough Band reminded the out-of-town visitors that St. Louis is home to some of the best blues musicians bar none. These four musicians are strong solo, together they are right on and sound outstanding. I can’t wait for a CD from them. It was cool waiting on the MetroLink platform with their music sounding great from afar and watching folks look in their direction.

Without a doubt non-bluesy college basketball lovers will be talking about the music they heard while in St. Louis and maybe a little hoops too.
