Kris Holmes's avatar View Kris Holmes's profile Options

Twenty years of dusty fingers, frayed cuticles, & upper respiratory infections — from record digging and DJing around the globe — coalesces into a 2-hour journey through Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Funk, Jazz, Blues, Latin, Rock & Roll, and all points in between. Your speakers will be head-nodding, toe-tapping & even two-stepping to this vintage 45rpm party in no time. Hear favorite songs you didn't know were your favorites, aural treats & record-world problems from the vinyl side of life.

Saw Luther several times in 1979 at a place in Omaha called the Howard Street Tavern. Great shows.

Awesome, I never saw him live but his records are great!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/11/17 10:25pm Uncle Michael:

Not much wireless in those days so he used a guitar chord hundreds of feet long to play from the stage to the back of the club, down the stairs, and out the doors an out onto the street.
