How to Use This VLOG
unlike a regular blog filled with blog posts, this is a Vlog, or Video Blog. To find a particular video you can either browse, or check out the side bar for tags, I have tagged each video by the name of the performer or band, and the song. So if you are looking for a particular performer or song just look for the link in the sidebar, click and you are there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Enjoy! Also don't forget my other blog Blues Historian. for more great blues news, and our face book page The Blues Army of Des Moines, Join the Blue Army and help keep the blues alive in Iowa.

SRTF ~ Steve Robinson & Big D ~ Voodoo Man ~ 2012
Big D is one of the truly legendary figures that people had talked about but rarely seen, until recently that is. He is now plays every weekend at Fat Tuesday's a cajin/New Orleans style restaurant on SE 9th in Des Moines. Big D new Jimmy Pryor back in Detroit. He was known for his blues in after hours joints in the inner city. I first heard about him from Billy Burch a sax player who spent many hours playing in after hour joints. I finally got to see him this Spring. Why he isn't in the Iowa blues Hall of Fame is a mystery to me.
Steve Robinson is also a local performer who I have only seen a couple of times. He is very good and plays a variety of music. He opened for our 420 show at the Hull Ave. Steve is extraordinarily talented you should check both of these guys out if you are ever in town.
