3 GREAT BLUES BANDS FOR 2014!!
The Voodoo DeVille band has been a local Chester County favorite since 1998. While Chicago blues was their starting point, their repertoire has expanded to include jump, boogie, swing, early rock ‘n roll, and rockabilly. Counting many of the greats as their idols and influences, they don’t feel bound to stick strictly to one style or one way of playing. If it’s fun to play, then it’s in their set list. The music is upbeat and danceable and proven to please a wide range of audiences. Voodoo DeVille’s lineup includes Lori Cushman on lead vocals, Buddy Cleveland on harmonica, Steve Cocchi on keyboards and lead guitar, George Dulchinos also on guitar and tenor saxophonist is Paul Cleveland. The rhythm section includes Ray Bentley on bass and John Gooding on drums.
Nate Myers & The Aces
Established in 2001, Nate Myers & The Aces performs to a variety of audiences in the Mid-Atlantic US: private parties, college campuses, concert halls, nightclubs and outdoor festivals. Lead by vocalist Nate Myers and his harmonica, the band creates a loose, casual atmosphere in which everyone can relax and have a good time! Whether the audience prefers to sit back and listen or get up and “shake that thang,” there is something for everyone. On a typical evening, audiences can hear influences from many forms of American music – blues, funk, hip hop, rockabilly, country and improvisation. Nate Myers & The Aces take all these styles they love and weave them into a tapestry of their own.
Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials
From working at Chicago’s Red Carpet Car Wash to appearing on national television, from gigging at the smallest ghetto blues bars to performing on the biggest international concert stages, master bluesman Lil’ Ed Williams has come a long way. Mixing smoking slide guitar boogies and raw-boned Chicago shuffles with the deepest slow-burners, Lil’ Ed and his blistering Blues Imperials — bassist James “Pookie” Young, guitarist Mike Garrett and drummer Kelly Littleton — deliver the blues, from gloriously riotous and rollicking to intensely emotional and moving. Not since the heyday of Hound Dog Taylor & The HouseRockers has a blues band made such a consistently joyful noise. Currently celebrating 24 rip-roaring years together, Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials ply their musical talents with skills that have been honed to a razor’s edge. As much a family as a band, Lil’ Ed, Pookie, Mike and Kelly have outlasted sports stars and presidents, musical fads and fashion trends. And together, they continue to make blues history with each and every performance and new recording.
