Recently while visiting my favorite Jamaican Cafe in Leimert Park, an arts Village part of Los Angeles,California, I  kept hearing very nice Hammond “B-3 licks” and a funky guitar, so I followed the sounds around the building to Barbara Morrison(Blues Singer) Performing Arts Center. Once there , I was met by a man in a suit ,who said come in and have a seat. I wound up sitting there for almost two hours. Then it hit me!  That host is Garrett Morris , from the movie ,Cooley High, TVs “MARTIN”  and the original “Saturday Night Live” cast member.  There he was presenting some of the funniest comedians I’ve heard in a long time, especially from the “new generation” comics. With all due respect , they tend to over-use the foul language .  Deacon Jones Band Garrett Morris NOW


Besides Mr. Morris hosting the show every Saturday 7:PM, also a Blues icon on the Hammond  Organ, Deacon Jones  and The Deacon Jones Blues Band.  Jones at one time was  longtime sideman to John Lee Hooker.

The Deacon Jones Blues Band was smoking that evening!  Come on out and enjoy comedy and a hot “Old School Soul & Blues band to boot.
