Yo yo every body! It’s time for yet another edition of BBR!
Today I’m picking the one and only…Ronnie Hawkins – The Hawk!
I picked this bad boy up at Beach Records down in Florida and it’s so good! Every song is kicking and swinging with power and rock n’ roll! And for those that don’t know, Ronnie’s drummer for the early part of his career was the late and forever great Levon Helm. Just check him out hitting the skins in this old video I found of The Hawks on Dick Clark’s Beech Nut Show!
Tonight we’re in Atlanta, GA performing at The Earl with Rodeo Twister! Doors open at 7pm. Showtime is 9pm. $10 to get in!
What’s up everybody?! It’s been a while since the last BBR post, so today I’m choosing a special record I found back at Florida at Beach Records!!
I can’t tell you how excited I was when I pulled this out of the crate y’all! I’ve been a Levon Helm fan for a long time now (how can you not be) and this record was truly an excellent find. Not only did I get the man behind the drums, but the lineup has more talent than you can shake a (drum) stick at – the Blues Brother’s band, Paul Butterfield, and Dr. John are all on this album! Does it get any better? Yes it does, because the not only do all of the songs sound great, but the album artwork MIGHT be even better!
We’re back in DC tonight at the gorgeous Hamilton to share the stage with the Bumper Jacksons! Doors open at 6:30 and show time is at 7:30! See y’all there! Oh and if anyone knows of a place to crash tonight in the Baltimore/DC area please let us know
