Gerome Durham

Blues After Dark

Milwaukee bluesman Gerome Durham continues his long-running association with writer/producer/multi-instrumentalist Johnny Rawls, finding room for both grown-up slice-of-life narratives and party-ready, tasty guitar licks. Durham's voice provides the most compelling draw. Neither resonantly bellicose nor given to gimmickry, it's a lived-in, elderly baritone suited well to his basic tales of no-good women, doing women good, watching women dance, partying and home-state pride (he's a Mississippi transplant). And if the lyrics don't always rhyme, neither does life, right?

Poll

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
