I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Every Time - Eagle Park Slim & The Vipers

Eagle Park Slim has been playing his brand of rhythm, blues, and soul since 1954 across the country, sharing the stage with such legends as James Brown, Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, Sonny Boy Williamson, Percy Mayfield, Ike Turner and many others. He developed his sound and style learning from greats and playing his music at his mom's club, The Village Tavern, in Eagle Park, Illinois. After playing for many years throughout East St. Louis, and across the river in St. Louis, with such masters as blues pianist, Johnnie Johnson (of Chuck Berry fame), Slim ventured out to Denver, Colorado. There, his Mile High Blues Band took the city and area by storm, belting out the real blues throughout the 1970s. In 1980, the road called him again and he headed west to Oregon. While many places throughout the Northwest , like Seattle, hold a special place in his heart, he fell in love with Eugene, as it reminds him of his hometown in Eagle Park. He's made it his home ever since. “To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson If you support live Blues acts, up and coming Blues talents and want to learn more about Blues news and Fathers of the Blues, ”LIKE” ---Bman’s Blues Report--- Facebook Page!
