WOW, sure am happy I checked in here!! I have never heard of Southern Hospitality before now.
But I have seen each of the band members separately with their own bands. Victor Wainwright was a mainstay in the Daytona Beach area for many years, my wife and myself used to see him almost every Wednesday night at the local blues jam and we also heard JP Soars at the Daytona blues festival back in '11. I remember talking to JP after the show and he said he is from Boca, very cool guy.
Well thanks for the heads up,

Just listened to Warren Haynes cover Lynard Skynard's Simple Man-Sounds Great! Now that's a tune I'd love to hear JJ cover! What do ya'll think?

One of my favorite albums of 2013 (so far).  As a musician, Otis is more than competent playing guitar, banjo or mandolin.  He describes his style as "trance blues", but I find that moniker perhaps truer of his band's live performances than his albums.  As a songwriter and storyteller, he is both historian and social commentator.  The most common denominator I could find between his songs and JJ's might be ones like On Palastine, Footsteps/Turpentine and Circles, songs based on stories JJ's grandfather told him.

This particular album has as its theme the plight of Native Americans and features guitar and vocal work by Mato Nanji, Nakota Native American and frontman of the rock/blues/roots band Indigenous.  Mato's guitar work on this album might conjure up comparisons to Daryl's work.  As for the remaining musicians, The Otis Taylor Band might only describe who happened to be around when Otis decided to record each song. Of the 13 album tracks, there are eight or nine different combinations of musicians.  Trumpet player Ron Miles really shines.  Sadly, for me at least, there is not enough of Anne Harris, the electrifying violin player that often "steals the show" at OTB concerts.

The OTB plays after JJG&M this coming Saturday at the Grolsch Blues Fest in Schoppingen, Germany.

You gotta be really bangin' on that guitar to make a bolo tie look good.
