Way back in the day my sister took me to The Lakecliff Club to hear a band. We went to listen to her friend Michael Grady. Let's just say it was a very interesting experience, and lots of good times were had at The Lakecliff!
Shreveport is known for its rich musical history and there are many who can write about it much better than I, but I did love to go to The Lakecliff , The Royal Room, the Rusty Nail, and later, clubs in Shreve Square to hear Michael Grady play; Grady shared the stage with some of our best local talent and I even saw him with Willie Nelson once at Whiskey River on the Riverfront.
I stumbled across Michael's CD this morning and promptly ordered it. Dennis Zimmerman, another fabulous local talent, is running a demo studio in Nashville and has produced a CD for Grady. I had to have it. I listened to the samples and Michael is ... well, Michael! The only thing this CD is missing is "Goodnight Irene."
Any of you locals who remember Grady and his entourage will want to add this one to your collection. Good times!
