Every Once in a while Mid-west blues mainstay Duke Tumatoe finds a way to tour the East Coast. I first met Duke around 1978 in his home base of Indianapolis leading his band The All-Star Frogs. Duke was one of the most engaging and entertaining performers I had experienced to that point. He had the ability to fill a 2,000 seat auditorium for a New Years Eve show and to this day continues to regularly work the Mid-west circuit in addition to being a regular contributor to the syndicated Bob & Tom Radio show. 
The band evolved into Dr. Duke & the Power Trio (Dr. of High-ology) and they will hit DC this Friday night at Madam's Organ in DC.
A THEME SONG FOR RIGHT ON RHYTHM!   — (There it is under the Calendar on the right side of the page)
On one of his previous trips east he told me he was going to write a song using Right on Rhythm and its over-arching metaphor for life as it’s main theme. You’ve heard me say it “Whether you are dancing, playing, or just being, It doesn’t matter what you do as long as you do it on time (hit the beat). I forgot completely about his statement but lo and behold on Duke’s new CD I Want to Be Rich there it is! ROR has been immortalized!
