Bluesman James Harman barbecues the blues on his latest LP Extra Napkins

"What I'd really like is to have a couple of big hit records and get so rich that I can take off more time. If I could just get more comfortable on the time, I'd be better, I'd be fresher. I'd tour for half the year and stop, and take two or three months off, and I'd relax and go fishin' and write new songs and record albums and take my dragster out and go drag racing for a few months."

Harman isn't exactly complaining, mind you. Don't think he's not aware that any musician who's ever held a day job has to be envious of his career. Harman has been a musician, and nothing but, for the entire twenty-seven years of his professional life. He rubs it in a little deeper: "I've never had a callus on my hand. I've never had to work. All I've done is sing. I walked out of the church choir right into a bar, and I've never left."

James Harman will perform at Chuy's on Friday, February 16, and Saturday, February 17. Show time is 9 p.m.

"I got about three [rave reviews] from England, from guys that are real snobs and don't even like white guys at all."
