For over 22 years, JC Pasquale has performed internationally and coast to coast, from the Carolinas, Japan, to his home town of Chicago. Seven years on the L.A. scene mentored by Danny Grenier (Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh, Bruce Willis) and touring the west coast, JC formulated his style of raw, cutting edge blues guitar and vocals that keep your toes tapping and the love for the blues alive.
Blending his influences of blues, roots rock and a taste of memphis soul, JC and the Road Kings are releasing their debut CD "Livin' In Paradise" and are poised to make their mark on today's blues scene. Featuring some of Chicago's finest blues musicians, JC and the Road Kings deliver a fresh sound and energy to the blues world, featuring Johnny B. Gayden (Albert Collins, Johnny Winter, James Cotton), Patrick Doody (Lonnie Brooks, Buddy Guy, Koko Taylor, Kenny Wayne Shepperd), John Kattke (KoKo Taylor, Eric Clapton, Steve Miller, Otis Rush), Brian Gephart (Taj Mahal), Willie Henderson and the Chicago Fire Horns, Brian James (Lonnie Brooks, Joanna Conner), John Mrozek (Dave Urich) and Howard Shaw (Sam Cockrell and the Groove).
