Description
Just back from Woodstock to do a gig at the Checkerboard Lounge on the south side of Chicago. The crowd got a bit unruly but other than that it was a good night. Enjoy this virtual blues club.

*This is a remixed version, after some feedback I decided to adjust. Hope its better.

Thanks Feter,
again Feter, I had some feedback that the B3 was a bit too loud, I guess I could tweak and tweak but I better stop there.
