Subbing with King Louis and Sweet Baby James

In March, I’ll have the pleasure of subbing for Renato Caranto with King Louis and Sweet Baby James.  If you haven’t caught this band before, call Jimmy Mak’s right now and make reservations.  Louis Pain’s nickname comes from people calling him the uncrowned king of the Hammond B3, which is fitting indeed.  And, the star of the show – Sweet Baby James – has been a staple of the Portland jazz scene for decades.  Unlike many of today’s vocalists, his songs (and whole shows) truly tell a story.
