Some of the best blues in America today isn't coming out of Chicago or the Deep South -- it's coming from New York City's Times Square where the B.B. King Blues Club All-Stars featuring the Harlem Blues Project jam weekly at Lucille's with special guests. Several soulful and dynamic veteran vocalist-musicians make up the Harlem Blues Project: Jerry Dugger, Junior Mack and Barry Harrison. Singer and bassist Jerry Dugger is a member of the New York Blues Hall of Fame, who's shared the stage with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny Copeland, James Cotton and more. Guitarist Junior Mack has played with greats like the Allman Brothers Band, Derek Trucks, Robert Randolph, Dickey Betts and Honeyboy Edwards and drummer Barry Harrison, a long-time band member for Johnny Copeland and Shemekia Copeland, rounds out one of the hottest blues outfits ever assembled. They're joined by a rotating cast of the finest musicians in New York City and beyond. Learn More

As my girlfriend said.. Now I can die happy after seeing the Yardbirds! Yeah.. it was fan-tab-ulous! All the hits Heart Full of Soul, Smokestack Lightning, For Your love, Happenings 10 Years Time Ago, Over Under Sideways Down, Drinking Muddy Water and of course Shapes of Things!! They also did a tribute to Mr Jimmy Page and played a Zep song.. Dazed and Confused and the guitarist, I think his name is Ben King.. OOOOHHHH YEAAAAH! The boy can play!!! Just a great sound at BB Kings.... A PERFECT VENUE TO SEE A SHOW!
Quotes & Highlights
Hear The Yardbirds.
The Yardbirds are more than a rock band…they are an institution…which, in the brief period from 1963 to 1968, made an indelible mark on the “Shapes of Things” to come.
To the casual music fan, The Yardbirds are best known as the band that honed the skills of future “guitar gods” Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page; and for their slew of chart hits, including “For Your Love,” “Heart Full of Soul”, “I’m A Man”, and “Over Under Sideways Down”. However, led by core members and songwriters Jim McCarty (drums), Chris Dreja (rhythm guitar/bass) and the late Keith Relf (vocals/harmonica), the band’s experimental explorations also provided the crucial link between British R&B, Psychedelic Rock, and Heavy Metal, while pioneering the use of innovations like fuzz tone, feedback and distortion. Even their 1968 break-up set the stage for Rock ‘n’ Roll’s future…leading Jimmy Page to form the New Yardbirds, later re-christened Led Zeppelin.
Reuniting decades later, McCarty and Dreja brought The Yardbirds boldy into the 21st Century with the 2003 release of the acclaimed CD “Birdland”, which featured guest appearances from the likes of Brian May, Joe Satriani, Slash and Steve Vai. And continuing their tradition of developing future British superstars, The Yardbirds debuted a new line-up July 2009 in North America, featuring the raw talents of Ben King (lead guitar), David Smale (bass) and Andy Mitchell (vocals/harmonica).
