Something Blue – Get It On


Welcome to Something Blue. I’m Hairy Larry and tonight I’m featuring the Jess Hoggard Band recorded live at Bluesday Tuesday at the Newport Country Club on July 12, 2011. As you can hear they had a great night, everybody was up and dancing, enjoying the music.

We heard “High Heeled Sneakers”, “Today I Started Loving You Again”, and “Under The Boardwalk” featuring Charles Wood on vocals. Jess and Charles both sing leads and they almost always have the harmonies going too. Ivan Yarbrough plays bass and Cecil Parker on drums both have extensive Blues and R&B credentials. And Tim Hoggard played the harp for us all night.

There’s no music like live music and KASU sponsors Bluesday Tuesday in Newport every month. They also bring you Blue Monday, Bluegrass Monday and Jazz Thursday. The music is always great so put your dancing shoes on and come on out.

Now that’s what I’m talking about. It’s the Jess Hoggard Band and they’ve got the Blues, for you. The entire show tonight was recorded at KASU’s Bluesday Tuesday held every second Tuesday at the Newport Country Club. It’s always a party and we partied hearty with the Jess Hoggard Band.

We heard Jess sing “Catfish Blues”, “Sweet Home Chicago”, and “Key To The Highway”. It’s a great band and it was a special treat to have Jesse’s brother, Tim Hoggard, blowing the harp. They are both great showmen and they have been featured on Something Blue many times.
