THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES FOR THE WEEKEND OF JUNE 17-18, 2017 There is a move afloat by Jerry King of Starbreakers Production to produce the Sons of Soul, a production that will bring the past and future of music together, according to the press release.  This musical celebration so far is a tribute to two giants in Soul Music….Joe Tex and Johnny Taylor.  The torches have been passed to their sons, Joe Tex II and T.J. Hooker Taylor.  They are trying to get a full roster of sons together to present nationally the history and legacies of these great artists through their sons.  They’re in talks to bring on board, Otis Redding III, son of Otis Redding, Bobby Brooks Wilson, son of Jackie Wilson, and Gemini Burke, son of Solomon Burke.  They’re working on getting all the music together, and they will have the full production together soon.  We’ll keep you filled in on the progress….Sounds interesting…. BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM   You heard us play Muddy Waters at the top of the hour….Well, At the Chicago Blues Festival last weekend, the city of Chicago dedicated a nine story mural of blues legend Muddy Waters to kick off the festival.  In attendance was Muddy’s daughter Mercer, head of the Muddy Waters Foundation.  The Muddy Waters Legacy Band play that included Muddy’s sons, Mud and Big Bill.  The mural is located at 17 North State Street and it 9 stories tall…..Very nice….We have a picture of it on the BluesNews Page on Bluestimeinthecity.com…..
