Great blues band comprised of seasoned blues veterans backing up big voiced young blues gal.  Becki Sue is reminiscent of those Texas blues women, Angela Strehli and Lou Ann Barton. The band, led by the winner of The Washington Blues Society's "best electric guitarist" award for 2003, flat out smokes!
