review new Boo Boo Davis by Barnowlblues (Holland)

Boo Boo Davis, geboren in 1943 in Drew, Mississippi, is een regelmatig bezoeker van ons land en een graag geziene gast. Dit laatste vanwege zijn connectie met Black and Tan Records en zijn Nederlandse begeleiders John Gerritse (drums) en Jan Mittendorp (gitaar), die niet geheel toevallig ook iets met genoemde platenmaatschappij van doen heeft. Davis, die zingt en gitaar, harmonica en drums speelt, heeft over de hele wereld getoerd en een behoorlijke catalogus aan cd’s uitgebracht. Op 30 oktober jl. traden David met Gerritse en Mittendorp op in het welbekende Café de Amer in het Drentse Amen. Van dit optreden zijn tien nummers uitgebracht als “Live And Almost Unplugged”. Tien nummers, zoals we ze van Boo Boo Davis kennen. Gebracht met veel plezier voor zowel de muzikanten als het publiek. Heel simpel en basic met slechts een stereomicrofoon in het midden van de ruimte. Niet gepolijst of geschaafd, gewoon muziek zoals het die avond klonk. Dit komt alleen maar de puurheid en eerlijkheid ten goede. Een mooi document van een van de weinige nog originele Mississippi bluesartiesten. Aanrader.

review Boo Boo Davis from Brazil

Escutem One Chord Blues do Boo Boo Davis

O Boo Boo Davis é um daqueles músicos de Blues que estão bem escondidos no coração do Mississippi, mais exatamente na cidade de Drew, a cidade da ativista Mae Bertha Carter e do pai dos irmãos Manning da NFL. Boo Boo tocou por décadas em St. Louis e teve a oportunidade de servir como banda de apoio a diversos músicos que por lá passaram, B.B. King antes da fama foi um deles. Ao contrário do que você pensa, esse não é um Delta Blues, o som dele é eletrificado, mas ainda é possível encontrar o Delta em suas canções.

Boo Boo Davis Rootstime

Rootstime boo boo davis

Als je, zoals wij hier bij Rootstime, vaak naar muziek luistert en geregeld iets nieuws te horen krijgt, gebeurt het al wel eens dat je bij een plaat blijft hangen. Meer dan eens s gaat het dan om een cd wholesale NBA jerseys die echt goed is en die je, na een tijdje, nog steeds geregeld opzet. Cd’s die nog een stap verder gaan zijn heel dun gezaaid, maar er zijn bepaalde schijfjes die zo y goed zijn dat ze je al de rest even doen vergeten en die er Davis om smeken om constant gedraaid te worden. “OldSkool” van Boo Boo Davis is er zo eentje. Al is Boo Boo Davis beslist geen nieuwe artiest, want Richard hij is waarschijnlijk een van de laatste mannen die kunnen navertellen hoe het harde leven in het Mississippi van de jaren ’30 en ’40 was.

Biography

… this how Mississippi blues sounds in 2016

Boo Boo Davis is a survivor and belongs to the last generations of musicians that write and play the blues based on first hand experience of a hard life in the Mississippi Delta. He was born and raised in Drew, Mississippi in the heart of Delta. It was the richest cotton land in the South and the large amounts of field workers attracted the best musicians from the surrounding areas. The entire Delta region was rich with blues, but the town of Drew was a particularly fertile one. Charley Patton stayed near Drew for many years and several legendary performers spent time there. Sharecroppers sang loudly to help pass the grueling hours of work and without a doubt Boo Boo developed his loud, bellowing voice based on the singing he heard in the fields as a young boy. In fact, that voice, through the years has demolished many amps and speaker cabinets.

Boo Boo’s father, Sylvester Davis farmed cotton and played several instruments. Musicians who he played with include John Lee Hooker, Elmore James and Robert Pete Williams. Boo Boo remembers these and other musicians dropping by and rehearsing at their house. At the age of five Boo Boo was playing the harmonica and singing in church with his mother. By thirteen he was playing guitar, and by eighteen he was playing out with his father and older brothers under the name of The Lard Can Band. This band travelled all throughout the Delta. In the early sixties he went north to St Louis and was around during the heyday of the St Louis music scene (Albert King, Ike Turner, Chuck Berry and many others). Together with his brothers they were the weekend house band in Tabby’s Red Room in East St Louis for eighteen years.

Even though Boo Boo moved north to St. Louis, he will always be a southerner at heart. When he is at home (and not performing) his favorite pastimes are hunting with his dogs and fishing. During Boo Boo’s childhood there was no time or money for him to go to school so he never learned to read and write. However that did not prevent him to travel all over the world. Following his guiding spirit (that he calls Dave) Boo Boo has found a way to deal with modern society. The blues helps him to keep his spirit high and survive day-to-day life. It deals with all the basic raw elements of life; good and bad, plain and simple.

His first European tour took place in April 2000 and since then Boo Boo is touring Europe at least twice a year. So far Boo Boo has released 5 CD’s on Black and Tan Records and all of them were very well received. Number 4 (DREW, MISSISSIPPI) was listed with the 10 best blues records of 2006 by MOJO Magazine (UK). In 2007 Boo Boo was invited to perform on the POCONO BLUES FESTIVAL, one of the biggest blues festivals in the USA and in March 2007 Boo Boo performed live on CBC Radio One, national radio in Canada.

What started as a crazy idea after the European tour of Boo Boo in October 2007 has turned out to be not too crazy at all. On the Spring Tour of 2008 they decided to leave out the bass and tour as a trio: Boo Boo Davis on vocals & harmonica, John Gerritse on drums and Jan Mittendorp on guitar. This trio has been touring Europe extensively; the last few years they did over three hundred shows in twenty different countries including a lot of the big blues & jazz festivals (Montreux, Peer, Juan les Pins, Amal, Olstzyn)
