Nashville, TN – As the writers of this article we spent the majority of our lives in New Jersey before relocating to Tennessee in late 2015. Being lifelong residents of the Garden State it was almost mandatory compulsory behavior to be a fan of its famous favorite son, Bruce Springsteen – and we were.
But, our fascination with the man centered mainly around his interest in helping with the revitalization and restoration of the shore town that put him on the map in the first place – Asbury Park.

Nashville, TN – As you know by now from my columns, Printers Alley, where I live and write is literally the “home of the blues” as the famed Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar is situated right in the heart of the bustling historic district of downtown off Church Street. And though there are a few regulars here who are declared (or claim) to be the “mayor of the alley,” only one man is king of the blues in these parts: Gil Gann, “the man.”
If you’ve walked through the alley only once, you’ve likely seen him in his signature performing regalia of top hat and black cotton matching shirt and pants—either putting out the signs for the club, sitting on the café chairs outside grabbing a smoke, or where he weaves his daily magic “on da porch” as they call the famed stage at Bourbon.
