|Real Name:||Hudson Whittaker|
Tampa Red was an American blues singer, guitarist and songwriter, born January 8, 1904 in Smithville, Lee County in Georgia, USA. He died in a nursing home on March 19, 1981 in Chicago, IL. Tampa Red came by his nick-name because he was raised in Tampa, Florida and because of his red hair. He was also known as Honey Boy Smith at Supertone (5). In the 1920s he formed a team with Georgia Tom (Dorsey), also known as The Hokum Boys. Tampa Red also created jug bands such as Tampa Red's Hokum Jug Band (featuring a young Frankie Jaxon), and The Tub Jug Washboard Band, which backed blues singer Ma Rainey. He also recorded alone, and cut a number of exquisite guitar solos.
