House of Blues Stage in the Voodoo Garden
More than forty years have passed since Brint Anderson first led his own band, The Shades. They played local teen centers and parties in his hometown of Natchez, Mississippi and the surrounding area throughout his adolescence. It was during this time that he found a love for the indigenous Blues of the area. Local Bluesman Papa George Lightfoot was Brint’s earliest inspiration; they met when Papa George was playing harmonica and spoons for a supermarket’s grand opening and radio broadcast. From that point, it was a natural progression to learn the music of other Mississippi greats such as Elmore James, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, and B. B. King.
