Episode 117: Keeping the Blues Alive with Ol' Harv' Stauffer

Harvey Stauffer was born in Chicago in the early 1950s and he's had the blues ever since. Well...I'm not sure when exactly the blues caught up to Harv', but he knows more about the blues than anyone I know. He's been researching it ever since he started hosting the Blues Revue on WVPE-FM radio 37 years ago.
He's played in a bunch of bands over the years. When I lived in Indiana from 1994 through 2015 Harvey was the lead singer and front man for the Elwood Splinters Blues Band. I was lucky enough to sit in with that group a bunch of times over the years, and it was a blast every single time.
Now, Harvey is in a new blues group called Ol' Harv' and the Blues Katz and they have a performance coming up in October.
Keepin' the Blues Alive!
