The Legend of Doc Cotton
Posted On November 11, 2011
I’m gonna write a monologue about a Mississippi delta bluesman named Doc Cotton (circa 1938) who played the juke-joints (little shacks for weekend entertainment) where he’s been stabbed for flirting w/ a mans wife and gets a job playing on the Mississippi Queen river boat heading for Chicago to start a new life in the industrialized city. He sees a blues band called The Mojomen and sees an electric guitar and amplifier for the 1st. time. He gets hired to work on the docks, saves-up for new music gear and forms a blues band called The Deltamen and plays the south side clubs. After getting hit records he opens a club called The Cotton Club and helps new bluesmen get gigs then marries Ellie Mae Jones and life is beautiful forever more!
I made up the music to this last night and I betcha it’ll be great to hear!
Have a Great Thanksgiving!!!
