“Jefferey Hudson a.k.a. Papa J has been turning music industry heads in Southern California lately with his blues outfit ‘Blues Gone South,’ wrote Casey Regan in AMERICAN BLUES NEWS. ” Coming up on sixty years of age, PJ still bounces on stage every night with the energy of a guy half his age. A showman by nature and musician by instinct, Papa J’s stage presence and energy is undeniably huge to anyone who’s seen him perform. From his contagious smile to his gut wrenching blues, he puts a thousand percent into making every performance mean something special to every person watching and it sure works on me,” concludes Regan.
