Sunday Night at Boss Hall's

A music patron responds to the opening chords of a favorite song during a Sunday night blues jam session of Greenville musicians at a neighboring Leland, MS club. Sunday night is as popular a night for socializing and listening to live blues as Friday and Saturday night in the Delta, with some patrons going straight to the club wearing clothes from Sunday night church services. Although Southern ministers have always preached against attending the devil’s services in juke joints, more than one observer has noted that both gospel and blues share a common origin and each of them seek to give comfort and release from life’s troubles.
