Groups like Los Lobos in places like Stockton help to draw the people who do
not care one way or the other for what purists and non-purists (me) consider
blues. Los Lobos helps to sell CD's by Rod Piazza and other neo-pure blues
acts lucky enough(just ask them!) to share the bill with The Wolves.
Butts in the seats are good for good (non-lip-synched) roots music.
Harp content-I saw LL headline the SF Blues Fest when I played a few acts
down the bill from them. Charlie Musselwhite sat in.
No butts-No Shows!
