When I talked to Shah a couple years ago he told me he comes back to the Carpet House to re-charge his blues batteries.  He said the jam was just like the down home back yard blues barbecues he used to attend as a kid.

Blues Biographies / Mr. Neil Boyd R.I.P
« on: April 06, 2013, 04:40:46 PM »
Motown own top of the line blues man, if you like southern blues with a feeling you will love Neil , his renditions of older blues muscian hits, and his baritone voice will give you goose bumps when he preforms. Mr Boyd was born in M.S in the early 40!s , so he knows how the blues was song and what it meant, he has preformed mainly at he carpet house jams, every Sun. Mr boyd also has a party store on Moran and would appreciate your business.

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO  KEEP THE BLUES ALIVE, WITH YOUR DONATIONS

WHAT A CROWD, ALL OF THE REGULARS SHOWED UP, AND A NUMBER OF JAMMERS, AND MUSCIANS, THE ONLY THING MISSING WAS MY  GARBAGE CANS AND MY PORTA JOHNS, WHICH WERE STOLEN DURING THE WINTER, PLUS A LACK OF DONATIONS,  HOPEFULLY WHEN YOU READ THIS YOU WILL DONATE AND JOIN, THE GRASS WAS FRESHY CUT AND IT LOOKED LIKE A MINI PARK.

PEOPLE WERE SAYING THEY HAD WAITED ALL WINTER LONG FOR US TO START BACK UP.

PLEASE DONATE, BECAUSE WHAT LITTLE MONEY  DONATED IS NOT SUFFICIENT TO KEEP US GOING, PLUS EACH PORTA JOHN  COST $100, AND THAT IS FOR A  USED ONE.  AND RIGHT NOW OUR FUNDS ARE VERY LOW. BECAUSE TO PRODUCE THIS  SHOW COST MONEY,

THANK YOU
     BIG PETE
