Blues masters Milton Hopkins (l) and Texas Johnny Boy
Enjoy an evening of eclectic blues with the 'freight train rhythm' of Milton Hopkins'
guitar playing and the vocals and horn playing of Texas Johnny Boy
. Hopkins, nephew of the great Sam "Lightin' Hopkins
, left a career with blues legend BB King
both as a recording sideman and bandmate on the road to settle down in Houston. (Lucky us, huh?) Texas Johnny Boy, who is first and foremost a vocalist, also plays harmonica, flute, and saxophone in the classic Texas and Delta blues styles.
But besides all the music credentials, they're pretty good looking, don't you think?
Hopkins and Johnny Boy will be joined by upright bass player Thomas Helton and drummer Richard Cholokian.
Texas Johnny Boy & Milton Hopkins perform Thursday, January 11 at McGonigel's Mucky Duck 2425 Norfolk, 713-528-5999.
