2014-06-25T15:43:46+00:00 <![CDATA[HomeTown Blues • Linda's Place on the southside.]]> The venue is a neighborhood bar in a predominantly Black area, and the clientele (and most of the musicians) seemed to be from middle-age to elderly, so the music was fit to their tastes.
The middle-age to elderly Black Americans, they have a love and respect for the blues, but they do not want to hear set after set of nothing but blues like the White folks do;
They want to hear some blues, but mostly soul, funk, and like that with a little blues mixed in - a little Albert King/Muddy Waters and a lot of Tyrone Davis/Benny Lattimore. The music followed that pattern; it was very engaging even for me, one who would not at all mind hearing nothing but blues.
One of the singers, named Denise, she and the band did one number that even sounded like jazz to me. The band was Fantastic L-Roy and his Bulltproof Band..
The most prominent characterisitic of the venue is the perception of sincere friendliness, welcome, and relaxation.

This place appears to be way out in the sticks but in reality it's 5 minutes from downtown Little Rock. Perception is the thing here. People look for reasons to not go someplace out of the way. I think these guys can still succeed IF they are willing to lose money on live music for a while. I don't know what happened to their master plan but the sooner they can get regular music and an open mic night the sooner they stand a chance of succeeding.

Just to mention, if one is persistent and patient, there are gigs to be had in this area. Bluesboy Jag has been getting us in some -places and it's really nice to have a partner who's GOOD at booking!
