Form of pseudo-blues performed by a quartet or quintet of old, white men. The group usually features predictable guitar lines, fatigued saxophones, and enervated harmonicas.
One or more of the performers may be required to eat a fistful of blood thinners to last the entire set.
Practitioners of this form believe "Blues Brothers" is the best movie ever made and that Steve Winwood and Eric Clapton are the best guitar players to ever live.
This music is usually heard at an outdoor, summer family festival or a fall chili cooking contest.
Steve: Hey, remember that crappy tired white man blues band we saw at the book festival last year?
Allen: Oh yeah, with that saxophone player wearing the stupid Blind Faith t-shirt.
Steve: Remember they had to stop half-way through "I'm a Soul Man" because somebody charged the stage with a revolver?
Allen: Right, I think a couple of event volunteers hung themselves after that set.
Steve: Good times, good times.
