...the band rocked with an hour and a half of raw, raucous, gut-felt blues…people who had never met were hanging off each other’s necks, dancing, and good buddies were slapping each other on the back and bopping like they didn’t care.
Female harmonicat Carol Moog shines...
Moog is big on the emotive sound.. ‘I like the simplicity of the blues and the harmonica is a perfect expression of some of the feelings that come through the blues’ says the veteran blueswoman who counts Paul Butterfield, Dinah Washington, and Sonny Terry among her musical influences.
…bluesmen Junior Wells and Buddy Guy appeared..The warmup act was the No Alibi Blues Band. The harp player had an excellent sound…as if she grew up listening to Junior Wells.
The Dukes of Destiny returned to the Mermaid Inn in Chestnut Hill last night and it was a party from the first downbeat…A couple of friends stopped in and made music with us. …this was the first time that I had played with Carol, who I’ve seen on the Philly circuit for several years. Be it the Mermaid or Goat Hollow or Gloria’s in Philly’s Fairmount neighborhood, Carol gets around and has become a class player. Huge sound in a small package. She’s got the goods.
