We are very excited to bring you the Mako Funasaka Archives! Looking back at some important moment of blues, performances, and milestone names, our first episode features 3 giant names:
Mel Brown – remembered by Joe Louise Walker, Taj Mahal, Steve Strongman, Andrew Galloway, Buddy Guy – followed by his performance of “Love, Lost and Found”, along with a tribute video to Jeff Healey performing “Like A Hurricane”, and last but not least Eddy “The Chief” Clearwater interviewed right before his show at the Silver Dollar Room in Toronto.

All courtesy of Funasaka.

Video premiered on March 28th, 2021 on TBS Facebook & YouTube.
