Ever since I was knee-high to a duck, my dad called me “Willey Woot” and it sticks with me today. That’s what I am calling this CD. This is a mix of songs from my previous self produced CDs in the COTTON PATCH BLUES STYLE that I was raised on. That original SOUL BLUES like my Poppa played. I hope you enjoy.

Theo'Boogieman”Dasbach & Iceman

Theo D makes his home here in the Delta dividing his time between Clarksdale, Mississippi and Memphis, Tennessee. In 2005, he moved to the USA and started playing the piano again. After encouragement from Clarksdale bluesman James “Super Chikan” Johnson, Theo D began performing locally in and around the Clarksdale area. Self-taught, Theo D plays simple, straight forward blues and boogie piano. Although his parents wanted him to play classical guitar, he fell in love with what he calls the greatest American musical heritage to the world, the blues. In the early sixties, Theo taught himself to play blues on the old piano in the living room. Theo D “The Boogieman” would perform at parties anytime people wanted to hear him. He also became the (self-appointed) road manager of the popular local band, THE BATS, in Apeldoorn. After finishing high school, Theo D moved in 1969 to Amsterdam to study law at the University of Amsterdam where he managed one of the Student Clubs and disc jockeyed. In 1978 he began his International Trust Banking career living in St. Maarten, Switzerland and the USA, returning in 1996 to The Netherlands. Loving the blues and all its fruits, Theo D opened the first Rock & Blues Museum in The Netherlands in 1997, where he displayed his collection of music memorabilia acquired during his travels all over the world. The museum was relocated to the USA in 2005, in Clarksdale, Mississippi. After 2 successful CDs, Theo recently released his his 3rd CD and is currently composing songs for a 4th CD.

Her guitar style tips its hat to her oldest influences: Mississippi John Hurt, Chet Atkins and Muddy Waters mixed with T-Bone’s swing, soul from Curtis Mayfield and the Chicago Blues of Jimmy Reed. With a sense of humor that shines through her impassioned performance, Liz is a polished, professional, and consummate entertainer, not to be missed!

Harp, Hart & Bones

The traditional blues trio Harp, Hart & Bones consists of ‘Fast Eddie’ Consolmagno on harmonica and slide guitar, Bill ‘Dock’ Hart on resonator guitar, and Randy ‘da Bones Man’ Seppala on drums and folk percussion. Harp, Hart & Bones (H2B) draw their material largely from the blues tradition that dates to the 1920s and extends barely into the early 1950s. It was a time when bands of two or three people were common, playing on record, at dance parties, traveling shows and clubs. Unlike the urban blues and rock music that followed, it was a study in the essentials...acoustic-based music set against steady and syncopated rhythms with music responsibilities shared evenly to create one sound.

Red's Lounge? It's the definition of a real-deal Mississippi juke joint. Don't expect to be spoiled with amenities. All you need is a been-there-done-that owner, some beers as big as your head and some "live" blues you'll never forget. (Oh, and MAYBE something out front on the grill.) This is how blues became blues... how the music grew up out of the cotton fields and onto a round piece of vinyl. Speaking of which, the building itself was called "Levine's Music Center" back in the day, and it's where Ike Turner and his Kings of Rhythm bought the instruments that played the first rock 'n roll song. Yeah, Red's is the real thing for sure...

Walker T Ryan

“Walker T Ryan Just him and his guitar. Walker T is the real deal. A bluesman, a Delta bluesman! He began as a Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly old school folk singer. Then he saw Son House! A lover of old Rock and Roll and country music. He knows hundreds of songs. He works as a solo and makes it look easy, but there’s years of craft and heart and experience and compassion behind his on-stage simplicity. He’s played thousands of gigs for all kinds of people, in places most of us only read about, and he’s entertained them all. Just him and his guitar.”

Steve Kolbus

was encouraged to learn and play an instrument by some of my great blues heros; Pinetop Perkins, Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, Bob Stroger, and Hubert Sumlin; so I learned to play the harmonica. They introduced me to Little Arthur Duncan who was one of the great Chicago harmonica men who helped define the west side Chicago sound back in the 1950s and 60s. Little Arthur taught me to sing play and write music like no one but Steve Kolbus can. Although I play the blues I'm a huge fan of the blues and the people who play it first. with this in mind I hope to play and record every blues related genre and sub genre of music before it's all said and done. The Clarksdale Blues Revue is a high energy Rockin Blues band that enjoys making people happy. Our live show is a high energy interactive show with lots of antics!! We believe that our "Skippin and Hoppin" CD is a great reflection of this philosophy. I have been truly blessed as I have been surrounded by some of the worlds most accomplished musicians the whole time I've been playing. The Clarksdale Blues Revue with world class musicians like Walt Busby, Jaxx Nassar, and Cade Moore is no exception.

All you need is a been-there-done-that owner, some beers as big as your head and some "live" blues you'll never forget. (Oh, and MAYBE something out front on the grill.) This is how blues became blues... how the music grew up out of the cotton fields and onto a round piece of vinyl. Speaking of which, the building itself was called "Levine's Music Center" back in the day, and it's where Ike Turner and his Kings of Rhythm bought the instruments that played the first rock 'n roll song. Yeah, Red's is the real thing for sure...
