Yeah, back in the day in Chicago they had "Rent Parties" which my parents hosted at times. You never knew who'd show up to perform. You just paid what you could to eat BBQ, dance and listen to great Blues & Soul singers and save yourself & others from eviction. The way people are losing everything now we should revive the old "Rent Party" circuit. . . .it's time to be helping our fellow brothers & sisters if we can.

I remember in Harlem every Friday night, two things were happening. The Fish fry and Great Blues on the stereo at my house. Where everybody in the neighborhood would get together and dance & sing.
These are traditions we lack in todays society and something we need to bring back and share with our younger generation. That's just my opinion.

Thanks Bishop for keeping the Blues Alive. Really there's no other genre I can think of that disappears and reappears with a vengeance. Being from Chicago and having learned the Real Deal on Maxwell St. I like to keep it evolving and bring the A+ Game to every audience possible. I look forward to meeting you next time I cruise thru Oregon. Keep in touch bro.

Even if just the inspiration of that time, when moms and aunties and grandparents and the families would get together, and there didn't seem to have a problem in the world and .It seemed that the blues always seemed to be somewhere on the play list, and the mood changed, somebody would grab a hand and and we got sent to bed. LOL I wonder was it the blues or the mood. Those were happy times. So the blues were happy.

The Blues have always been dear to my heart. They take me back to a time when life was simple and big family gatherings where my parents would laugh & dance and sing and there was an abundance of food, love & drink for all to partake... several generations all gathered to network & socialize. I miss those times. Perhaps we as Artists, Producers & Fans can help recreate something similar for the inheritance & memories of generations to come. As the new Elders we have a responsibility to guide our young people back to the Light of Love and a more wh***some way of Life.
