PaPa Don McMinn

"Papa" Don McMinn has been touring the world with other great artists and his own band for over fifty years and is still going strong. With his two sons, Doug (drums, harp and vocals), and Rome (bass and vocals), they “spread a lot of grease” when they go on stage. Papa was part of a team that built and opened the world famous "Rum Boogie Cafe" on Beale Street in Memphis Tennessee in 1985. He held forth there until 1994, at which time he moved on and returned to his love of recording and touring. There is no better blue-eyed soul singer than “Papa” Don.  Listen to his original music and you will hear traces of Kansas City’s jazz clubs and the music of the Delta he loves.
