Mike Watson Band Brings Home Honors

I don't nearly write about Blues artists as much as I should.  The genre has been around for more than a hundred years, progressing and evolving into many styles, sparking inspiration and overflowing into many other genres including of course - fucking rock and roll baby!

Apparently Atlanta knows its Blues because they honored an amazing Blues artist this past weekend at the Atlanta Society of Entertainment Awards.  The Mike Watson Band has been a favorite of mine since first hearing them a couple of years ago and I'm so pleased that they were recognized for their talent and dedication to the art of entertainment.

Not only were they named the 2013 Blues Band of the Year and the 2013 Runner up Band of the Year, but Mike was also honored as being the 2013 Entertainer of the Year and took home the 2013 Mama Wynette Entertainment award.  Credit well deserved.

This is the Mike Watson Band performing one of my very favorite Blues Tunes, Ain't No Sunshine.....


You can find out more about this incredible entertainer here >  I highly recommend you visit his site and view more of his videos.  If you like the Blues, you're gonna love the Mike Watson Band - I fucking do......... ; )
