The road is no place for amateurs. Consider the long hours between gigs. The snow and rain. The all-night rides. Flat tires. Ditches. Which all sound pretty good right now to 14-year-old Shannon Curfman, who is leading her own blues-rock band on a cross-country journey. "I'm having a blast," Curfman says. "I want to be on the road all the time." The road has just taken her to New York, where she was the only rock act invited to perform at the Teen People magazine party.

When the media spotlight swings toward the blues these days, it usually lands on young, white prodigies such as Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Shannon Curfman. That makes it all the more unusual that a tour featuring several obscure black blues musicians from Mississippi, most of whom didn't even start recording until they were in their 60s or 70s, is generating the kind of buzz that's accompanying the Fat Possum Mississippi Juke Joint Caravan, which stops tonight at House of Blues.

Texan Bert Wills, who's appearing at Smokin' Johnnie's in Studio City on Saturday, recites in an easy drawl a long list of people who have influenced his eclectic style of play. "It's a Gulf Coast sound," says Wills, who hails from the Galveston area. "It's a mixture of jump blues and swing. Sometimes it gets a little rowdy, but not too often." Singer and guitarist Wills is touring with his four-piece band that includes drummer J.D.

The dressing room was really just a boys' bathroom with folding chairs, and the fanciest thing about the stage was the hanging stars fashioned from cardboard and crinkly aluminum foil. And you don't want to even know about the opening act, a mime whose robot dancing left the 700 kids in the audience looking similarly blank-faced.
