J. Blackfoot - "I'm Not Your Man"

I'm not your man, I'm your lover.  It ain't no either or the other. That's all that I am, I can't take it any further. Ladies, J. just can't make it any clearer than this.  He said that if he wanted responsibilities, he'd get married. So if you're dealing with a guy who only wants to mess around sometimes...

Jaye Hammer - "Dig a Little Deeper"

Oh, do I love southern soul!  Fellas, if you've got a good woman, you've got to hold her and console her and then you got to treat her right! You've got to let her know she's the one you're thinking of.  Well alright, Jaye!  Dig a little deeper, stroke a little longer, roll a little harder (?), hold a little longer, give her what she's missing, love and kisses, you've got to please her. Ladies, if you have a man, sometimes it seems as if he doesn't understand but you know he loves you.  You also have to follow Jaye's advice. He says life is full of pressures - don't you know it!

Check out "Lay The Hammer Down" (http://southernsoulparadise.blogspot.com/2014/05/jaye-hammer-lay-hammer-down.html) and "I'm Leaving You" (http://southernsoulparadise.blogspot.com/2013/06/jaye-hammer-im-leaving-you.html) - both are fantastic Jay Hammer songs!!

Love this music!

Southern Soul Blues Report - Our Bridge to The Blues Past and Present

Have you checked out The Southern Soul Blues Report (http://www.southernsoulbluesreport.com/) yet? It's an online blues station that plays southern soul ALL day long!  Yes!! I love this station. It is totally awesome to be able to listen to southern soul music all day and all night, seven days a week. And, this station has a unique feature that I haven't found anywhere else - an online request line!! So cool.  All you have to do is go to the link, find the song you want to hear (the choices are amazing!!), and click on your choice. You've got to try it - it's like having your own personal juke box.  The site also includes a link that tells you who they are and another unique link that goes straight to a variety of videos.  It's a great chance to see videos of some of your favorite southern soul artists. Stay tuned to their top 25 countdown and other info that we need to know. The Southern Soul Blues Report - they are definitely our bridge to the blues past and present.

Nellie "Tiger" Travis - In Concert in Virginia

Hey Mr. Sexy Man, what yo name is?  Now how many times have you ever heard someone ask that? If you’re from the south, you’ve probably heard it plenty of times.  I watched a dynamic performance over the weekend by Nellie “Tiger” Travis and loved it when she sang her signature song, Mr. Sexy Man.  We all got on the floor as she danced with us!!  She rocked the entire place with her beautiful voice and some of the songs she sang included Baby Mama Drama, Who’s Fooling Who, You Gonna Make Me Cheat, Superwoman, I’m Gonna Slap Yo Weave Off, Can I Back It up, and the oh-so popular Mr. Sexy Man.  She is a personable performer and before singing Happy Birthday, she even asked who was having a birthday.  She called each birthday person by name and showed off her amazing voice by singing a cappella.  Beautiful!

Nellie performed at the RedZone Grill in Fairfax and this venue was perfect for the show.  She makes you feel as if you're a part of her show and if you ever get a chance to see her in concert, go!

RedZone Grill in Fairfax, Virginia

I went to a blues show in northern Virginia over the weekend and had a blast.  I had never been to the RedZone Grill located on Main Street in Fairfax and it is a great club and bar.  Nellie "Tiger" Travis performed and the club provided an intimate setting - it was perfect for her show.  There is always something going on here and you can catch live performances each week. There's a great dance floor and the dee jay knew what the crowd wanted to hear. For sports enthusiasts,The Redzone Grill has plenty of TVs all through the place. The menu has a nice variety and the prices are very reasonable. Service was good and the waiters/waitresses were attentive and friendly. I've never critiqued a club but this one is worth it.  If you're in the DMV, go!!

Enjoy!
