This was my first time to this particular venue. Decent place to see a show. The crowd was very chatty throughout the performances…and the lights SUCKED.

Tonight’s musical showcase featured some prominent guitarists…many of which I either know or have shot in the past. What was indeed cool about tonight’s setup was that each musician performed their own musical set. Then later in Luther’s set, Jimbo And Alvin came out and joined in the fun as they have played together in the past as The South Memphis String Band. All around good times for sure.
