New Question: This performer was born in New Orleans and his father was a Baton Rouge blues mainstay, whose pals included Buddy Guy and Slim Harpo (the latter gave the then three-year-old performer his first harmonica). At age 13, this performer was playing in his father's band, and at 17, landed a job playing bass for Buddy Guy. This performer was a 2009 Blues Music Award Winner for Song of the Year and was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2011. What is the name of this family orientated performer?

Charlie hits a triple with three in a row correct. Nice job. The correct answer is Kenny Neal.

New Question: This band's original lineup solidified in mid-1974. The band has opened many doors and forged many touring routes for their contemporaries, including the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Robert Cray, and played with as many Blues and Rockabilly legends as they could. They opened show after show for Muddy Waters, James Cotton and Carl Perkins, and backed up and recorded with John Hammond and Pinetop Perkins. Over the years, the group has included a variety of members, including Jimmy Thackery, Bob Margolin, and Mark Wenner. The band won Acoustic Album of the Year at the Blues Foundation’s Blues Music Awards in Memphis in May 2011. What is the name of this band that has been performing for over 40 years?

While Beatleburger gets credit for another funny answer, TennesseeGuy gets credit for the correct answer, The Nighthawks. Great job.

Although this musician was one of the original founders of the group, he left The Nighthawks in 1987, first forming a six-piece R&B band, then in 1992 he formed a three piece band. What is the name of this musician and his three piece band?
