**THE SEND OFF, BEFORE TIM GIBBONS HEADS TO MEMPHIS TO COMPETE AT THE INTERNATIONAL BLUES CHALLENGE**
It was in the hazy days of the late sixties that two young Blues music enthusiasts first met in front of the Sherwood Lanes pool hall in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. For guitarist 'TG' Gibbons and bassist 'Swampy Joe' Klienfiltr it was to be the auspicious start of a longtime musical collaboration.
«I had started out playing drums at some local teen things and occasionally backing up strippers,» says TG. «I guess I felt more drawn to the guitar for I sold my kit to a guy who worked at the local gas station, named Patch. This guy was so over the top he set the kit up right on the station lot. Whenever he could get a minute from pumping gas he would play a mean boogaloo on those drums.
He was great and it wasn't long before me and Joe were playing the blues with Patch.» 'SWAMP TOOTH COMB' is the new c.d. release for TG and the SWAMPBUSTERS, featuring an exciting You Tube video for the top track, 'BAYOU PREACHER'.
Funky and self assured this is one BLUES BAND that always knows how to BRING THE PARTY!!! «It's filled with gritty blues-based rock, the kind of stuff a less-than sober Keith Richards would appreciate.” „Local music legend, Tim Gibbons has triumphantly returned to his rock roots with his latest CD, 'Swamp Tooth Comb'.
Our special menu for this Southern Supper will include Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Memphis Style BBQ Sauce; BBQ'd Baked Beans; Coleslaw with Remoulade Dressing; Peach Cobbler; Sweet Iced Tea; & Cafe du Monde Coffee & Chicory.
