[off topic] Support a local actor

Who, you ask? Why Steven Seagal of course, who is playing the Blues at the New Daisy

Seagal is on a world tour playing the blues and Memphis bluesman Kirk Smithhart is in his band.

Seagal, living in Memphis while his daughter was at St. Jude, heard about Smithhart, went to see him at the Blue Monkey and invited him to his house to jam and chit chat. A few days later, Smithhart got a call to come to Los Angeles with his passport in order. They've played Canada, Russia and now Japan. There are dates all across the U.S. in just about every House of Blues, the Fillmore in Frisco and Madison Square Garden. Including the New Daisy on Beale St. Wednesday, June 14th, 2006.
