Boston Blues Band 1

This Boston Blues Band is an inspired trio and sometimes a quartet. The leader's unique guitar style channels such slide greats as Elmore James and Duane Allman. Uniformly, listeners are amazed at the big sound of the band. Many have compared his style to that of the early Stevie Ray Vaughan because of his ability to combine lead and rhythm guitar. He is also a gifted and prolific song-writer.

The leader of this Boston Blues Band grew up listening to Hank Williams, so that's probably where he got his influence on slide guitar. There was a lot of James Brown around the house as well, so you know he heard the funky stuff. All is evident on his latest release available on itunes.

He started playing guitar in the 1969. A short stint at Berklee served him well. In the the early 70s, he played with the R&B band "Sandra and the Melodies", as well as several other local bands throughout Boston, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

After a few years of mostly writing and recording his own material, the leader of this Boston Blues Band went back to the live scene.

Boston Blues Band bassist

The Boston Blues Band's bassist is about as rhythmic, melodic, stompin' and R&B as you wanna hear!
She's spent a good many years in Texas...Whaddya'll expect? 'Nuff said. She also Produced the CD as well as designed the wonderful cover, including artwork. We're pretty lucky to have her.

Boston Blues Band drummer

The Boston Blues Band's drummer is as cool a cat as you'll see behind the skins. Pay close attention to him at the live shows,you'll see some "entertaining" moves back there. He is as good as it gets.

When a quartet is required or requested, this Boston Blues Band adds a keyboardist. Although you could call him the oldest, they have played together in the past. He has also done stints with Shirley Lewis as well. When they're not playing as a trio you'll find him back there on a Hammond XK-2 and a Kurzweil keyboard.
