Travis Haddix with Rose City Kings

July 5 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Long-time fans will remember when Rose City Kings supported legendary guitarist Jody Williams during a visit to the Pacific Northwest.  Rose City Kings is proud to do it again with Cleveland Blues Hall of Famer Travis Haddix.  Travis originally hails from Walnut, Mississippi, located thirty miles south of Memphis, Tennessee. In 1959, Travis moved to Cleveland, Ohio where he joined the D.L. Rocco Band and achieved regional notoriety that led to a prominent spot with the Little Johnnie Taylor group. Travis also contributed material to five albums by Artie “Bluesboy” White. His material is also covered by Artie “Bluesboy” White, Dickie Williams, Jimmy Dawkins, Michael Burks, Charles Wilson, the late Son Seals, and Lee Shot Williams.
