~Portraits in Blues~




Etta James 4/30/2009
House of Blues / Chicago

Etta James is such a wonderful entertainer, and she gives us her best whenever she performs. She runs circles around those performers half her age and absolutely nobody can hold a candle to her great musical talent and showmanship. Listening to and seeing her perform with her sons Sametto and Donto Metto (the rhythm section) was a really special treat. She appeals to audiences of all ages and if you get the chance to see her, please do! I especially like the way she interacts with the audience as she gets very “creative” and “playful” as she sings her songs.
