Biography

Black~n~Blues has evolved into it's current form over the last 4 years, started by Farley and Cummings, and is now a powerful and polished blues fusion band. Rich Cummings is a power house behind the drum kit. He knows how set a steady grove and get in the pocket, but can also steal the show with intense melodic and technical drum solos. Matt Stopper, kin to Cummings, is one funky bass player. He can "walk" a bluesy marathon and slap a bass solo silly. Stopper and Cummings are a solid and creative rhythm section and the anchor of BnB. Doug McMinn brings much to the table as the bands multi-musician, splitting the guitar and vocals with Farley, and bringing the sweet sounds of the saxophone. Doug is one of the most versatile musicians in the greater Williamsport area and brings experience and depth to the band. Sean Farley is the front man for the group as a vocalist and lead guitarist. When you hear his guitar scream and cry, and his powerful growling voice you will see a young man beyond his years.
