    Doin' The Bump With Joe Tex


    Seen here is a 1981 JET photo of Joe Tex on the dance floor. Well, to be fair, almost nobody looked very good in '81.

    Saw Joe Tex at Montreal's Expo '67 in, yes, Montreal in 1967. Great show, in a relatively intimate setting, maybe 100 people tops in a small tented music stage.

    He was already doing his patented "Knock over the mic stand and recover it with a footstomp" routine..several times during his act.

    I'd love to see a video of that trick, but vintage Joe Tex videos are few & far between. The one you posted was great!
