Music Monday Mp3some: Flood City festival...
May 10, 2010 - Ray Eckenrode
In honor of this year’s lineup at the Flood City Music Festival:
“Right Next Door (Because of Me),” Robert Cray
A modern blues giant, he almost singlehandedly re-introduced the genre to white America in the mid 1980’s, plus he was in “Animal House” as the bassist for Otis Day and the Knights. How cool is that?
“One Time, One Night,” Los Lobos
Prepare for some pretty strong words: Los Lobos is the greatest band of the last 25 years with the possible exception of U2. And although the goatee’d and Ray Ban-sporting Cesar Rosas is often assumed to be the band’s frontman, it’s guitarist/songwriter David Hidalgo who is our generation's greatest underappreciated talent.
“Heart of Steel,” Galactic (with Cyril Neville)
There’s always a little bit of NOLA at the Johnstown festival and this year it’s this funk/jam band that will be bringing the legendary Cyril Neville along as a bonus.
