Chris 'Bad News' Barnes presents his uniquely topical and slightly twisted take on Hokum Blues, the raunchy and humorous song style popularized in the steamy Prohibition era of the 1930s by the likes of Tampa Red and Big Bill Broonzy. Barnes is a well versed musician and satirist whose credits include countless opening slots at the legendary NYC blues club, Tramps, where he would improvise original blues tunes based on audience suggestions, and writing and performing on Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld, and the Carol Burnett Show.
