The Fraser Melvin Blues Band

Young. 
Raw. 
Specified lunged talent who look 19 or something.
Rolling and bellowing the soul of B. B. King,
Half the size and the other side of bluesy chocolate. 
In this moment, in the moment of mega producing talent,
Rock bands 
All bands,
These kids - these adults - these idols.
Wearing a Blue Jay baseball cap
Sweating stains and jerry curls.
They are larger than the music lines
Stringing notes in our throats.
His version is larger than the stage.  His music is toe tappin' and cherry snappin'.
twang boom crash swish swish
Chorus lines singing into 1930's microphones. 
In this hipster bar filled to the brim
Everyone is thirsty
Everyone drinks their conversation and melody.
Shake it. Shake it. Shake...It.
