The King Biscuit Festival 2000 Pictorial Review

There is no festival quite like "Da Biscuit". In case you missed it, or simply want to relive this incredible music event, we hope you enjoy this review!

Arthur Williams and Bob Lohr showing the crowd that St. Louis Sound! Sam Carr was to also perform, but sadly was in the hospital and couldn't attend.

Anson Funderburgh is an absolute master of that Texas style sound.

Ask anyone who's been, this is as "down south" as it gets!

Carey Bell at Da Biscuit, letting everyone know "The highway is my life, and the motel & hotel is my home". Bell sat in on sessions in various south- and west- side blues clubs in the fifties and sixties and even busked on Maxwell Street for spare cash. He taught himself the bass to make himself more employable, and has played both harmonica & bass with Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, John Lee Hooker, Earl Hooker, Robert Nighthawk, Eddie Taylor, Lowell Fulsom and Jimmy Dawkins.

Lonnie Shields bringing the crowd to thier feet. Lonnie dedicated his show "to those who couldn't make it - Frank Frost & Johnnie Taylor!" Lonnie grew in in West Helena, Arkansas, home of the KBBF, and long time home of another great lyricist, Sonny Boy Williamson.

A great moment for the Bluesnet, being invited onto the King Biscuit Flour Hour, AND meeting Robert Lockwood Jr!

A powerful vocal presence by Reba Russell pleased the crowd. Tracy Nelson soon joined Reba, and filled the air with her dynamic vocal abilities!

Speaking of Tracy Nelson, here she is!

Roy Gaines singing about how to "Roll your own biscuits and make your own dough". Gaines had a really high-energy stage presence surpassed only by his guitar acrobatics!

A real crowd pleaser! Sam Myers has been leading the guitar attack of Anson Funderburgh for over 10 years now

Since 1965, "Sunshine" Sonny Payne has continued to air King Biscuit Time at 12:15 pm, Monday through Friday. Sonny still plays the traditional blues songs of his listeners' favorite blues performers, opening with a Sonny Boy Williamson number every day.

Toni Lynn Washington is Boston's "true queen of the blues." She has performed with everyone from Jackie Wilson to Janis Joplin

Walter "Wolfman" Washington with a special guest!

Thanks goes out to Randy Williams, Jerry Pillow, Bubba Sullivan, and all the staff & volunteers that helped create this wonderful musical event. And of course, special thanks to all the Blues musicians and fans. You truly make the KBBF an incredible event!
