Blues band is a giggin band.
But we lay low during these winter months so we don't over saturate the area,mostly private parties.
An OK blues scene here in Reno.
We are the left of center blues band ,we play west coast swing,jump,early r&b,early r&r. Not the standard fare although we could do that but choose not to do it.
We do Taj,Wm. Clarke,Harman,Kim Wilson,Johnny Mastro,The Red Devils,MoFos,Musselwhite,Ron Hacker.
I'm proud of the band,in my eyes and ears- the best slide player and harp man in Reno area!
Wheresmyroadie heard us last summer,he loved us!
And he,my friends,is THE shuffle king in NorCal!
All IMHO!

I'm in Maine and until recently was in a blues band. We only had one gig, but that was more about band dynamics than the demand for blues bands. There is a desire for Blues here in Maine as evidenced by the North Atlantic Blues Festival held in Rockland, ME in late July and the Blues Festival held in May/June around Sebago Lake.

If my harp player and I can get things going again, I'm sure we'll have plenty of gigs.
