Dean Reichert's soulful voice carries in it the history of American popular music: There's the down-home rhythm and testifying punch of gospel-based R&B, the snarl of the blues, the mournful rumination of honky-tonk, sultry jazz and the up-front sexuality of funk. Oh, and he's a talent guitar player, too. Reichert's guitar talent has been shared with Larry Correll, Nokie Edwards, Jerry Miller, Tim "Too Slim" Langford, "Little Bill" Engelhart, Kenny G, Tom Grant, DK Stewart, The Wailers, The Blues Power Revue and Grammy nominated Kathy Hart. Locals know Reichert for his time with drummer Michael Kinder and keyboardist Buck England in Butterbean, or his guitar behind Jake and Elwood in the New Blues Brothers Revue. Reichert heads to the Swiss Monday for the Tacoma joint's longstanding blues night.
