There's some great videos of some juke joints and I'm sure Ronnie has seen one called "You See Me Laughing"?..great North Mississippi Hill Country documentary..if your curious you should check it out..
The below conjures such wonderful, vivid imagery, I feel as if I am there. I wish Alvin WOULD join you just for a week, and I wish the rest of us could too!! It sounds like fabulous fun. BTW, if this is a photo of you, as it seems, you look very German! ;-) Rock on, Sixy!
Boy!! if Alvin would join me Just for a week, would we Have a Blast or what!!!
Let me tell ya, these little backwoods juks is all most people have for entertainment other that church on sundays, But they have a dress down!! I went to one outside Bassfield Mississippi, a Pole Barn type structure,compacted dirt floor, stage made from shipping pallets, tables of wood spools used for cable,2 pool tables, Card Board walls,and egg crate ceilings, with a red light bulb,Everclear and Boones farm wine,available at the bar!When the players arrive, they are dressed in Red suits big hats blue shoes,women are dressed down with the big hair and bigger hats, man ya get excited, when they walk in, Start drinkin and get down with juke music,1 drum and a tambourine, and have a great time !!
till the sun comes up,
