Hello Everyone,

On Monday, March 12th, I interviewed my big brother in the Blues,  Theo “Mr. Excitement” Huff! We had a great conversation about his experiences, mentors, and people who have influenced him as a young artist singing Soul and Blues Music. Unfortunately, I was unable to salvage the archived recording however, I’ve enclosed videos that Theo took during the interview.  FYI, Theo will be performing on Friday, March 24th with the Nu Agenda Band at Rosa’s Lounge, 3420 West Armitage Avenue. Cover Charge is $15. He will also be featured in a musical called “Why I Don’t Go to Church Anymore” on May 20th at the Gwendolyn Brooks Theatre, 250 E. 111th Street (3 pm and 7 pm Showtimes).  Here is the playlist from the show:
