The Rae Gordon Band
Waterfront Blues Festival
July 4, 2017
Here it is again this year, Waterfront Blues Festival. I'm not going to be recording much this year. I'm just to busy with family and retirement. The radio station is still cutting in at weird time to announce all the station call numbers. To me it's an annoyance. I'll try to edit these out if possible.
Cheers to all, twofthrs
The seven-piece band rides along in that sweet sexy spot between uptown and downtown, with a haunting, gritty groove of a slide guitar with the power of a hard-driving horn section, a sound which has recently gained them national and international attention.
The band recently found new fans at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee, where they placed 3rd in the entire contest and a much-anticipated release of a new CD recording in summer of 2017.
RGB, based in the Portland, Oregon area is fronted by the Muddy Award Hall of Fame Winner for Best Female Vocalist (Cascade Blues Association), RAE GORDON, who started her music career in the piano bars and comedy clubs of Los Angeles and brings that intimate feel and sense of humor to every one of her shows, whether it's a crowd of 10 or thousands. The seasoned players, who have played the big and little stages of the Northwest and beyond, include Kivett Bednar on guitar, Al Hooton on bass, Ed Pierce on drums, Pat McDougall on keys, Scott Franklin on saxophone and Allan Kalik on trumpet.
