We wrap our 21st year on the air with an encore performance from The Lovelight Orchestra. It’s real-deal Memphis Blues. The sophisticated blues and jazz sounds you would have heard floating from the windows of The Palace on Beale Street in the 40’s and 50’s.
LLO features Blues Music Award-winner John Nemeth on vocals, Joe Restivo on guitar, Tim Goodwin on bass, Earl Lowe on drums, Gerald Stephens on keys, and a five piece horn section that includes Marc Franklin, Scott Thompson, Art Edmaiston, Jason Yasinksy, and Kirk Smothers. The band has recently signed to Blue Barrel Records and the group is working on a full-length release with producer Matt Ross-Spang. This performance was captured at Loflin Yard in downtown Memphis.
