I want to hear some Blues so we ended up at the Funky Pirate.
On the schedule that night was Big Al Carson and the Blues Masters.
"BIG" was an understatement. He is just under 500 pounds. He parked across the street (the street is closed off but they let him through) and walked straight to his chair. I wasn't sure what to expect but man can this guy sing. He was pretty funny too.

I could have sat there all night listening to him.

A must see.
