DJ Hairy Larry Presents Mike Dollins
From The Archives Of Something Blue March 5, 2023
Thanks Marty. Today we’re going to hear some jazzy blues recorded live at the Craighead Forest Bandshell.
Mike Dollins is a blues musician and promoter from Little Rock. We had the idea to have an Arkansas Blues Caravan bringing musicians from all over the state to perform at the Bandshell. The acts performing included Suzanne and Fred, Sandy and Roy McCann, Ben “Swamp Donkey” Brenner, Jawbone and Jolene, and Mike “Whiskerfish” Dollins and The Big Blue Cats.
It was great weather with everyone enjoying everybody else’s blues. A good time was had by all, the musicians and the audience.
I picked a Robert Cray song, “Phone Booth”, played by the Big Blue Cats to play today. Playing on the song are Mike Dollins and Ben Brenner, guitar; Mark Dixson, bass; and Ted Thorsen, drums; all from the Little Rock area.
So, it was May 20, 2007. Musicians from all over the state gathered at the Craighead Forest Bandshell to party, trade stories, and play music. It don’t get no better than that.
Now here’s Mike “Whiskerfish” Dollins and The Big Blue Cats playing “Phone Booth”.
