Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Johnny Tucker started playing in the local clubs of Fresno during the early 60s with his family band. Later, he cut his teeth as a drummer for Phillip Walker. This put Johnny on the road and he would later work with Floyd Dixon, Robert Cray, Johnny Otis, Lowell Folson, Johnny Copeland and many more. In the late 90s he cut a studio album with James Thomas before launching a solo career with the release of Why You Lookin at Me some years later. Today he celebrates a long career in Big Jon Atkinsons vintage 1-track studio to cut the downhome blues project, Seven Day blues released on the High John label.   Johnny Tucker
