Boogie Woogie Rhythm & Blues this week on The Juke In The Back!

The Juke In The Back” focuses on the “soul that came before rock n’ roll,” the records that inspired Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and countless others.
Let’s begin 2021 with a solid hour of Boogie Woogie Rhythm & Blues. Boogie Woogie has the natural ability to make you wanna tap your toes, shake your hips and just all around feel good! The blues style of Boogie Woogie piano features a strong left hand, playing repeated bass lines, leaving the right hand free to improvise around the keys. This produces an uptempo, rollicking feel with a solid groove that makes you want to get up and dance. Men such as Pete Johnson, Albert Ammon, Meade “Lux” Lewis and Fats Domino dominated the field, but some of the best Boogie Woogie you’re ever going to hear was played by women. Hadda Brooks, Camille Howard, Dorothy Donegan and others not only held their own, but in many cases surpassed the men in their playing ability.
Don’t let the piano fool ya, Boogie Woogie can also be played on other instruments as Matt The Cat features a few guitar and saxophone boogies to round out the program.
So get ready to welcome the New Year with a smile as the “Juke In The Back” kicks off 2021 with some Boogie Woogie Rhythm & Blues!
Join Matt the Cat for Juke in the Back, this afternoon at 03:00 PM Eastern, after "The Lost Lennon Tapes" and before "Only The 80s" with Anne Cosgrove, on Mushroom FM, the home of the fun guys, making four decades of magic mushroom memories!
