Something is definitely not right. The world feels a bit off kilter. Positively askew, even. What the…wait, I remember. It’s that little spare tire on the front passenger side. I’ve been meaning to get that fixed. But why do I feel the same way even when I get out of the car? I sometimes think the whole world must be ridin’ on a spare.
My boss, who played bass in the legendary Wisconsin band Punch back in the 70’s, told me that ukulele and accordion were not acceptable instruments for playing the blues. I sent him to this video, but it did not seem to win him over. I figure that if Louis Armstrong could record the magnificent Wild Man Blues with a tuba and a banjo, I’m in great company.
You can read and watch more about this year’s Backwoods performance in my last Backwoods post.
It was more fun than a tuba full of rain.
