and the Hoo Doo Cats -
a JumpSwinginRockinBoogieBluesaBilly trio
based in St. Louis, recently celebrated
their 15th year together. You may have read Cornbread's
review of their double CD release.
Lots of longevity for a band, and over the years
and his band have continued to add to their
fan base. A full house at the Casa Loma Ballroom
was evidence of their continued popularity.
Hudson Harkins, an Austin, Tx. native of 39 years,
has led his band in over 2000 appearances over
the past decade.
The band features vocalist, drummer and songwriter
Harkins, guitarist John Logan, the exciting slap
bass of Mike Graham, and the keyboard magic of
Matt Murdick. Lots of dance clubs were on hand
to move to the music, something Hudson says happens
It was easy to see why, as there's an irresistible
appeal to Hudson's unique sound. Here's a glimpse
of a great night of music, Hudson style!
