  • Beverly Guitar Watkins w/ Rick Fowler Band - Sweet Home Chicago - 04/27/19

    7:03

    Beverly Guitar Watkins 80th Birthday party at the Foundry in Athens, Ga. April 27, 2019 with her Athens stalwarts the Rick Fowler Band (Rick Fowler, Michael Doke, Deane Quinter, Greg Veale, Tim White). These are seasoned musicians that listen and respond to Beverly. Always dynamic and fun, no two shows are the same. She'd been in the hospital and was quite energetic that night. Shes recently suffered a stroke and we're not up to date on her prognosis. All the best to a talented, positive, and engaging musician and member of the community.
    This is the edit of a 3 camera shoot with myself, Dave Nix, & Dan Aguar.

  • Beverly Guitar Watkins w/Rick Fowler Band - Blues is Alright - 80th Birthday - 04/27/19

    11:21

    How do you celebrate your 80th birthday? Beverly Guitar Watkins has a show and tears it up at the Foundry in Athens, Ga. (4/27/19). She'd been in the hospital recently but was feeling up to speed playing with the Rick Fowler Band (Michael Doke, Rick Fowler, Deane Quinter, Greg Veale, Tim White) her regular support in Athens, Ga. They listen and play for her (and each other), not at her, and always have transcendent shows. The sound quality is due to their dynamics and Kevin Sweeney's mix. This is my hand-held camera angle from a four camera shoot (with Dave Nix and Dan Aguar). Sadly, Ms. Beverly passed away on Oct. 1 after suffering a stroke a few months after this show.

  • Beverly Guitar Watkins/Rick Fowler Band - Gimme Some Funk - Athens, Ga. 11/30/13

    4:33

    Can your grandmother do this? Thanksgiving weekend at The Melting Point in Athens, Ga. This is the last song of the evening, the result of my trying to finish the show without having to change the battery/memory and failing. She's just ripping it on the solo - great tone. This was the best blues in Ga. on a Saturday night - great venue, enthusiastic audience, and authentic musicians. Rick's band is an impressive complement for Beverly (Rick Fowler - gtr, vcl. Michael Doke - slide gtr. Deane Quinter - drums. Greg Veale - bass, vcl. Tim White - Hammond. Beverly Guitar Watkins - gtr, vcl).

  • Beverly Guitar Watkins w/Rick Fowler Band - Red Mama - 07/10/17

    10:43

    Beverly named this slow tempo blues after her guitar, Red Mama. This is another selection from the show in Hartwell, Ga. at the High Cotton Music Hall. This is the only show she did at this venue. They tried to get back there with her but time just ran out. Beverly Watkins, Rick Fowler - gtr, vocals, Michael Doke - slide, vocals, Deane Quinter - drums, John Straw (filling in for Greg Veale) - bass, Tim White - Hammond.
    Jimmy Sanders, general manager of WUGA, Athens, Ga. recorded audio for a WUGA broadcast. I mixed his version with a little bit of my camera audio for this video. Thank you to all involved.

  • Beverly Guitar Watkins w/Rick Fowler Band - Sweet Melody Cruise - 07/10/17

    Sweet Melody Cruise from Beverly Guitar Watkins and The Rick Fowler Band from a hot July summer day (July 10, 2017). The only time the band and Beverly had played the High Cotton Music Hall. Nice place, very cozy, community atmosphere. This particular day they were working on the air conditioner when we arrived - it was fixed but the show was still hot. Rick Fowler - gtr, vocals, Michael Doke - slide, vocals, Deane Quinter - drums, John Straw - bass (filling in for Greg Veale), and Tim White - Hammond played a set, then came back with Beverly at the helm. Sadly, there won't be another opportunity to return with her. Jimmy Sanders, general manager of WUGA, Athens, Ga. recorded audio for a WUGA broadcast. I mixed his version with a little bit of my camera audio for this video. Thank you to all involved.

    Last song of the night. Inspired, they all improvise this energetic end to the evening. Beverly leads and gives everyone a chance to solo. The camera battery runs out but I was able to recover and capture the end of this number - Find it here
    This clip was edited with credits/fade to black so the video quality suffers from the compression. Set to highest rez, turn up, and get down.

  • Beverly Guitar Watkins w/ Rick Fowler Band - Back in Business - Foundry - 09/24/16

    7:54

    Back in Business - this was Beverly's attitude towards life, may she rest in peace. Even with her frequent ailments, she always came out with a positive energy and wailed - a consumate performer. Whenever she played Athens (99% of the time at the Foundry, formerly the Melting Point) the Rick Fowler Band was her support. Exceptionally talented and storied musicians themselves, they had the talent and experience to play with and for Beverly, not at her. You can see the joy on her face as she performs this song with Rick Fowler, Michael Doke, Deane Quinter, Greg Veale, and Tim White. Back in Business from Beverly Guitar Watkins eponymous recording.
    Dark lighting with lots of magenta - this was before we trained the lighting folks at the Foundry to turn up the lights, especially white, whenever we video. Audio is from Panasonic HMC40 camera.
