Alabama Music Office.com goes to Flobama in downtown Florence, Alabama to attend a performance by Microwave Dave for W.C. Handy Festival 2013. This video shows Microwave Dave singing a jug band tune about Alabama.
Twenty years of performances in the U.S and Europe and six albums-with more on the way-have helped Microwave Dave & The Nukes establish a wide multinational audience. Venues vary from French soccer stadiums to Bike Week in Daytona Beach, from blues cruises on the Big Red Boat to neighborhood saloons, but the thousands of shows delivered by him or him and his band all reflect one core element: the heritage blues music enjoys as a lifter of spirits. As Microwave Dave puts it: "Blues is America's first-and still best-self-help program."
