Big Joe & the Dynaflows

One of the most longest serving bluesmen in the Washington D.C. area is Big Joe Maher, who has played in the area for at least the last 30 years. I first heard him with the The Uptown Rhythm Kings, then with the Tom Principato Band, before he started the five piece Big Joe & The Dynaflows. Good Rockin'Daddy is still one of my favorite CDs and since that release this band has continued to master the New Orleans blues and jump swing sound. That's why the WSDC Swing Dance Committee is always in attendance.And this past Saturday, we got a chance to see the band in action at the Reston Town Center for a free live concert. There was a strong turnout and as soon as the music began, the dancers were out front. What a nice way for a family to spend an evening.
