Central Avenue
Posted in 1920s,Honey,Texas Blues on 08.31.06

For those in North Carolina, on September 13 Dance Gumbo is having a dance party with the great cajun group Beausoleil. The show starts at 8:30, but if you need to learn how to dance come early at 7:30 and be schooled in the art. Its at the ArtsCenter in Carborro and should be a great time. For tickets and more information contact Jack Wolf at jackwolf at yahoo.com or go to the ArtsCenter website.

This track comes to us from Dallas and is another great example of party Texas blues. Will Day sings lead here and backed by a great and sadly undocumented band. The song is about Central Avenue a rough and tumble street and Dallas, much like Beale St. in Memphis or the Deep Morgan area of St. Louis. It’s a great boastful party side that will get dancing like an ipod ad.
