No blues shouter embodied the rollicking good times that he sang of quite like raucous shouter Wynonie Harris. "Mr. Blues," as he was not-so-humbly known, joyously related risque tales of sex, booze, and endless parties in his trademark raspy voice over jumping horn-powered combos of the post-war era. His music included "Good Rockin' Tonight", "Keep on Churnin'", "All She Wants to do is Rock", and many more that you will just love. The All Stars so convincingly recreate the sound, swing and feel of the original tunes that there are moments when you're convinced that Wynonie is, for this concert at least, inhabiting, the voice and spirited performance of Johnny "Juke Joint" Strasser. The soaring sax lines and solos by Hurricane Carla and Alex "the Rev" Flores never let the music drag for even one second. This will be a show not to miss.
