Hope you aren’t craving barbecue, because you definitely will after listening to Classie Ballou. Originally from Louisiana, Classie Ballou is the definition of blues music. Currently based in Waco, Ballou has been in the game since the 1950s. It’s impossible to not start dancing as soon as Ballou starts playing the guitar. Hearing him play gives you just the right amount of nostalgia, but his incorporation of zydeco and other genres allows his music to sound fresh. Check out the Studio 1A session here, and Ballou and his band will be playing the Eastside Kings Festival on Sunday, September 11 alongside other blues legends.
