25 June 1956, San Antonio, Texas, USA. Waiters sang in R&B clubs while in his teens, later also singing in a church choir. He spent some time as a disc jockey on local radio, meanwhile continuing to perform whenever opportunities arose and was fortunate to be offered regular work singing at military bases. Waiters began attracting wider audiences on the R&B circuit and in 1996 and again two years later he won the Jackson Music Award. He enjoyed chart success with ‘Hit It And Quit It’ from his 1995 debut I’m Serious. Another important single success was ‘Got My Whiskey’ from his third album, Woman In Need.
Influenced primarily by Teddy Pendergrass, Waiters’ smooth vocal style and his leaning towards slow, soulful ballads continued to bring him steadily more attention and his fourth album Material Things made the Billboard Top 100 R&B charts. The attendant single ‘Hole In The Wall’ was also a big seller. Among other hit singles have been ‘Man Shoes’, ‘Show You How To Love Again’, ‘How Can I Get Next To You’ and ‘The Smaller The Club’. Relaxed and unpretentious, Waiters’ material and his approach to it has made him a popular and much-heard radio attraction. His cousin is blues singer Walter Waiters (b. 20 July 1971, San Antonio, Texas, USA).
For 35 years, Millage Gilbert has taken center stage at the Red Hot, blues drenched clubs of urban Kansas City. For over five years, Blues, R & B and Soul aficionados have swarmed to his Saturday matinee at the world famous Grand Emporium.
He has chiseled out a solid style of Delta Blues, Memphis Soul, and Kansas City Blues.
Millage was born as the seventh son of Walter and Doris Gilbert on the 24th May 1938 in Jackson Mississippi and raised on the Juliaine Farm in the Gilbert neighbourhood of Madison. His grandfather, father and all six brothers were guitar players and Millage began to play by “messing around with my brothers guitar when I was five”.
All the family loved the blues and they would listen to records by the likes of Broonzy and St. Louis Jimmy or simply play for their own entertainment at home. Two years after beginning to ‘mess around’ he was inducted into his brother Marion’s band. As the airwaves and traveling musicians brought the post war electric sounds to Madison so Marion’s band plunged into the Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Wolf, Rogers and whosoever’s songbooks and Millage learnt harmonica. Downhome blues was hot and the Gilberts were at the top of the neighbourhood tree.
