Mose Allison Performs

Posted 7 December 2009

I’ve been a Mose Allison fan for more than 40 years. He’s now 82 and still playing clubs around the U.S. —this year, he performed on 75 days! With more than one performance on many days, that’s probably more than 100 live performances this year. I hope I have that kind of energy when I’m 82.

If you get a chance to go see him, don’t miss it. You may not get another chance. His schedule is posted at, though as of this writing there’s only one 2010 date listed.

We recently saw him at 19 Broadway in Fairfax. Here’s a clip of “You Are My Sunshine” from that performance.
