Music photos from Los Angeles

Here is the final batch of photos from my recent US road trip with John Howard, covering some excellent gigs in Los Angeles.
Here is Smokey Hormel, who we saw at McCabe's Guitar Shop in Santa Monica.
The next night at Joe's American Bar and Grill in Burbank we were pleasantly surprised by the energy of Tom Kenny and the High Seas band. Here he is with his band and female singers.
Main act of the night were Los Straitjackets. Here they are, plus a pic of Jaalene 'Queen of the Teens' who sang 'Angel Baby'. 
Next day we went to two South LA venues where local blues acts were on show. The first of these was Bell's Blues Workshop, where artists included Shelley Gibbons, Southside Slim, Lady Renee (with Lester Lands) and Sherry Pruitt.
This is Franklin Bell, the man behind this LA institution.
We moved on to the Pure Pleasure Blues Club, where the excellent acts included Bobby Love, Sir Stan Griggs, Sonny Green, Sammy Lee, Sheryl Monet and Asia Raye.
Our final night in LA was spent at the La Louisiane restaurant, where Hank Carbo put on an entertaining set, backed by Lester Lands and the New Breed Band.
Finally, here's one of Hank Carbo with John Howard and myself.
