Happy Day...

Music is moral law.  It gives soul to the universe,
wings to the mind, flight to the imagination,
and charm and gaiety to life and to 

Greetings from Tampa Bay, St. Petersburg.

Arvid woke up saying, "today is going to be a great day"
Today you see, we will be seeing one of our newest favorite musicians.
Very young guy all the way from St. Louis Missouri.  
We first met him in NYC at a blues festival.  At the time he was not even 21 years old.
He and Arvid chatted for quite some time and after hearing him play we both became fans of his.

From that day on we were always on the look out for him.  To our surprise, he plays regularly in St. Louis during the summertime and we just so happen to be in Chicago during that time.  We always make the trip to see him and so far we have not been disappointed.

Two years ago when we saw him in BB's Jazz and Blues Club in St Louis, he had still not reached drinking age.  As he said to Arvid, "only OJ for me"  A few times one of the girls slipped him something other in his OJ and he was happy.

Today the opening act is Marquise Knox, who is fond of saying:
"the blues was passed to me through the blood"
So you see, Arvid woke up happy...  You see for him music is 
what feelings sound like.
Hope you enjoy your day as well :)
to stop the flow of music would be like the stopping of time itself, 
incredible and inconceivable...
