Lil' Ed & the Blues Imperials- Natural Man
Lil' Ed and his boogie machine have moved on.
You know that tiresome guy at the guitar shop who demonstrates that he knows every classic rock riff? It turns out that his name is Joe Bonamassa. He headlined at the Kansas City Blues Society’s free concert series last Sunday. Bonamassa does more than just quote "Smoke On the Water," "Layla,"and "Stairway To Heaven"- he makes sure you know how fast he can play them. Fortunately, the Blues Society has a perfect remedy for Bonamassa's excess. Lil’ Ed & the Blues Imperials are playing the series this Sunday. Sloppy and fun, the roadhouse band is the anti-Bonamassa. They’re essentially a Hound Dog Taylor tribute band, and that’s intended as high praise. Can someone give me a ride home?
