' Mississippi River Electric Blues'


Lew Jetton learned The Blues the old fashioned way, in the cotton fields of his native West Tennessee.  Along the way, he had two of the best mentors one could have: In the 80s, the legendary Carl Perkins, and in the 90s, the one and only Chicago Blues Legend, Snooky Pryor. Lew Jetton is indeed, the real deal. Over the years, Lew Jetton & 61 South has established itself as festival and club favorites throughout the Midwest, Midsouth and beyond!

"Maybe the most REAL blues I've heard in a long time."  

Luke Williams - WKYQ-FM


“This guy nails it...and he does it without showing off or feeling that he has got to impress somebody by playing everything he knows in the first couple bars.” 

Reflections In Blue


"Lew Jetton & 61 South should be on festival stages throughout the United States, showing how real Southern Blues should be played.  It's real Southern Blues in all it's Down Home glory!"
