Waterfront Blues Festival
July 5, 2018
Another year is here and I'll try to get as much of it as I can again. The Festival is again being broadcast by KBOO FM. They are a community radio station which is listener funded. Please support them if you can. Only four day's this year since the 4th is on a Wednesday. Again, I've tried to find and "fix" all the blemishes. Enjoy the show's....twofthrs
Triple threat Josh Howell (slide guitar, harp, voice), percussion savant Pete Devine (drums, washboard) & bassist Joe Kyle Jr. deftly mix sinuous Delta/Hill Country Blues w/ wildly syncopated rhythms to create a rollickin� present-day sound from the past. Bay Area-based, the band has four records out �one self-released, two on Arhoolie Records. The new album is Howl (on Little Village Foundation).
�What a pleasure to find a young band that really gets the blues. Deep and true to the roots. Really digging them. Glad they�re on the scene.� -Bonnie Raitt
�Love them � they�re great!� -Elvin Bishop
�HowellDevine plays with the original feel, intent and spirit�it knocks me out to hear them play such quality blues.� -Charlie Musselwhite
