Memphis Music legend Papa Don McMinn was instrumental in the rebirth of the Home of the Blues: Beale Street in Memphis Tennessee. During the mid-1980s, Papa Don’s band had the "house gig" at Rum Boogie on the corner of Beale and Highway 61. Everyone who was anyone was there, and when the big names came to town to record or perform, there was only one place to go - to see Papa Don McMinn and his Rum Boogie band. Papa Don has worked and recorded with the likes of Memphis Slim, John Mayall, Bobby "Blue" Bland, and Albert King. Some of the notables who’ve made cameo appearances with Papa Don's band are Joe Walsh, Gregg Allman, Rufus Thomas, Jon Bonjovi, Billy F Gibbons, and Eddie Floyd. Self-penned “Black Guitar” is an audience favorite among Papa Don’s repertoire.
