The Blues Dude

Carryin' on the Blues legacy

What car, new or old, reminds you most of Blues Music?

I was recently talking to a good friend of mine, who also happens to be a fellow musician, named Cog, that’s short for Cogan, about some history of the Blues. Cog hosts an Open Mic at Sarah’s Corner Cafe on every Tuesday night in downtown Stroudsburg at 700 Main St. on the corner of 7th street. The conversation started to become very interesting when the topic of cars came up, and how different cars reminded us of different Blues artists. Then I asked him what he thought was the car that reminded him most of Blues music. He replied, “the Buick Roadmaster.” I was so intrigued as to why it was his answer, so I asked him why he chose that particular car. He said, he vaguely remembers a John Lee Hooker album cover that had a Buick Roadmaster on the front cover, so that was the reason he chose that car as his answer. Below is a picture of this old American Classic car obtained by wikipedia.

The Blues Dude Plays Sarah Street Bar And Grill in Stroudsburg

The Blues Dude had a great time playing at the Open Mic at Sarah St. Bar and Grill in Stroudsburg, PA. The blues dude got a once in a lifetime opportunity, to sing with Liz Starship. The blues dude has always wondered though, is that her real last name? We sang and played together The Thrill is Gone by BB King. What a great time we had. There is nothing like a crowd that is so happy to see you play that they want to join you. The Blues scene in Stroudsburg is definitely growing. The blues dude will play with anybody who knows the blues. If you ever had a bad day, you know what the Blues are all about. If you ever got fired from a job you loved, you know what the blues are all about. If you ever got ditched by the woman you love, you know what the blues is all about. Here are a few pictures that Ricky Delgado took of the Blues Dude playing blues at Sarah St. Bar and Grill. Thanks so much Rick!!! Your pics are the best!!!
