SHOW 103: AUG 18-AUG 24, 2017
With his wily and unforgettable original songs and his hipster, street-smart vocals, no one on the blues scene writes or sings like harmonica ace Rick Estrin. No one looks like him either, as Estrin is always dressed to the nines, sporting his trademark pencil-line mustache and pompadour haircut. The San Francisco native cut his teeth as a teen with ZZ Hill, Fillmore Slim, Travis Phillips and Roger Collins before finding a place with the legendary west coast hallmark band, Little Charlie in the Night Cats during the 70’s. Rick became the band leader when Charlie departed in 2008 and released his fourth studio effort for Chicago’s famed Alligator records, “Groovin’ in Greaseland."
