“MIDWEST BEAT with Tom Lounges”
This edition of “MIDWEST BEAT with Tom Lounges” originally aired on TUESDAY, AUGUST 19th @ 6pm CST
GUEST: BOB MANDARINO – Blues Jam Night King
Blues musician BOB MANDARINO – the king of region jam nights for more than a decade visited the Lakeshore Studio to guest on “Midwest BEAT with Tom Lounges” and brought along his bluesman buddy MAURICE JOHN VAUGHN, a veteran on the Chicago scene and an Alligator Records recording artist.
Mandarino and Vaughn talked with Lounges about their respective careers and their love of blues music. Bob also shed some light on why after an 11 year run in the region, his world famous blues jam nights continue to pack area night clubs and bars, like the hugely popular weekly Wednesday jam at Back Court Lounge in Crown Point, Indiana (6-10:30pm) that has drawn top Chicago blues names to make music on this side of the state line.
The guys also played a live in studio tune and picked some tasty songs to share from some select CDs of famous Chicagoland musicians they have worked with over the years and some they will be working with again soon!
