Tab Benoit's show at the Blues Festival in New Orleans

The first I wanted to see was Tab Benoit. We got there a little early so that Allison could see the South Memphis String Band. They were pretty good, but I was ready for Tab. The show started in the sunlight and finished under the stars. It was a great show as usual (been a few years, but we've seen Tab a few times when he's played in Birmingham). Tab hasn't changed much, still dresses the same and still makes faces when he plays. Enjoy the pics and go see these guys if you ever have the chance.

Gettin' into those Blues

Tab and the Drummer

The bass player was REALLY damn good. He didn't move around much so I didn't take too many pics.

Feelin' that one for sure!

Luther Dickinson from the South Memphis String Band  and also from North Mississippi All Stars got up and played with Tab. Another young guitarist who won a contest got to play a few songs too, but he's young and hasn't learned to face the crowd while he plays so the pics of him are not that great and didn't getincluded here.

I love the look on Luther's face! The boys be jammin'!

Stay tuned, we've more bands to cover this week!
