Okay, summer slowly gettin' here but it's been HOT at Birdman for months !!
Our man Chetley Weise from Auburn, Alabama and formerly of Immortal Lee County Killers, Quadrajets and currently fronting the awesome San Fran based Silver Lions 20/20 played a deadly FREE set of electric blues in the shop this past Saturday ! Some wicked delta raunch which included songs by Burnside, Hooker and Howlin' Wolf to name a few. A crowd of about 25 folks witnessed how the spirit of Skip James is alive and well, residing in the body of the "Cheetah" ! Thanks dude, we'll have ya in our house anytime !
