Guy Davis, son of Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee, took the stage at The Extended Play Sessions Fallout Shelter (1-10-16). The all-star band backing Guy on "She Just Wants to Be Loved" included Professor Louie on keys and accordion, Chris James on guitar, banjo and mandolin and Mark Murphy on the upright bass.

Review: Midwest Record

GUY DAVIS/Kokomo Kidd: With the acting chops this cat has running through his veins is it any wonder he can sell anything and make it look easy? A modern, down home acoustic Blues set as inspired by his parents as it is Pete Seeger as it is the storytelling tradition, this is a sucker Sunday punch that'll have you on your back before you know what hit you. And you won't even know you were hit. With Professor Louie and various members of the Crowmatix providing the architecture in the background, this is a great reminder that there's more to contemporary Woodstock music than the ghost of the Arkansas kid. This has got to be the best back porch record of this year. Killer stuff.
