Joseph East Side Slim

Long time resident of the right-side of the Mighty Mississippi, East Side Slim is an aficionado of all forms of music branching from the Great Mother Tree of blues. After many years spent in a seemingly endless quest for music of the soul (and the occasional top-flight barley pop), this quest was sated upon sinking deep, deep roots into the ground surrounding ol' Saint Lou.

When not working, enjoying family and friends or pursuing musical enlightenment, East Side Slim also enjoys scuttlebuttin', concocting Tang-based beverages, hunting for that elusive perfect bowling shirt, and turning YOU on to great music via his reviews on www.stlblues.net.

"Really enjoyed your write up on the CD.  In my experience it's rare that a reviewer listens as intently as you"

Kim 'Fest Junkie' Welsh

Greetings from the Crescent City... New Orleans! I live for the next festival or live music event. My passions are photography and music and they go together like red beans and rice. I live near New Orleans, so I am fortunate to have access to one of our great cities for music.

I enjoy cultural events such as second line parades, jazz funerals (We put the FUN in FUNeral!), Mardi Gras Indians, and rhythms of all genres, but preferably BLUES!

I cut my teeth on the Beatles, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Led Zeppelin. I love Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Hiatt, Buddy Guy, Sonny Landreth, John Mooney, and all Delta blues.

I look forward to keeping you abreast of events in the Southeast of our great country. May all of your blues be on the radio... or LIVE if you seek it out!
