A recording from July 6, another day of the Waterfront Blues Festival, brought here by The Rippin' Frog.

Andy T & Nick Nixon Band
featuring Anson Funderburgh
Waterfront Blues Festival
Portland, OR.
July 6, 2014

Another year of WBF recordings. Recorded from KBOO FM in Portland, OR. A great lineup again this year.
I was looking forward to Greg Allman's set, but he had to pull out due to sickness. Oh well, I wouldn't
have been able to share him here anyway. Seems to be much more DJ talking this year, interrupting some music.
I just left it in rather than trying to edit each show. Feel free to make any changes you wish for personal use.
I may need help with some of the set list's as I don't know all the bands.
Enjoy, twofthrs

The blues has a history of great partnerships — an honor roll that includes Delta giants Son House and Willie Brown, Chicago kingpins Buddy Guy and Junior Wells, blues-rock innovators Michael Bloomfield and Al Kooper, Harlem street  musicians Satan and Adam, and modern punk-blues heroes the Black Keys.
Now add Nashville’s Andy T. and James “Nick” Nixon to that venerable list, because the duo’s brand new debut album Drink Drank Drunk is an old-school barn-burner: the kind of disc that blows the dust — and the doors — off the Texas, Chicago, Louisiana, West Coast and deep soul traditions with a rare and vital song-oriented approach.
Andy and Nick’s union began on stage two years ago at the Nashville Blues Society’s regular Sunday night jam, where Andy leads the house band. Given Music City’s population of killer players, Andy was used to sharing the stage with high caliber performers. But when he heard Nick, it was love at first note.
“The first time Nick sang next to me on stage I got goose bumps,” he recalls. “Nick sings like I’d like to able to sing. He’s a really fine guitarist, too, but when Nick steps up to the microphone, the bar is seriously raised for every other musician in the room. His singing inspires me to play guitar at my best.” Andy T and Nick will be joined by the Texas guitar ace, Anson Funderburgh, on Spectacular Sunday, July 6th.
