Harvey Scales at Mini Stomp in Austin
My good friend Nick Sands sent me through the above photos taken last month at the Mini Ponderosa Stomp and Stax Show in Austin, Texas.
The Ponderosa Stomp is usually held every year in New Orleans corresponding with the N.O. Jazz Festival. However this year, Dr Ike decided to have a mini Stomp in Austin as a warm up for the big event in May. The show included Bobby Patterson, Barbara Lynn, Tami Lynn, Archie Bell, Harvey Scales, Willie Tee and Dennis Coffey backed up by either Little Buck's Band or Wiley and the Checkmates.
The Stax show featured Booker T & MGs with William Bell.
