With a mixture of delta blues, early jazz, western swing and some novelty numbers, John Paul Drum & Bill Dye intensify America’s musical form from it’s roots. Harkening back to great duo settings ala; Sonny Terry & Brownie McGee, Cephis & Wiggins, Buddy & Junior, The Delmore Brothers, etc..the fellas just make music out of air. Guitar, harmonica and vocals (& maybe a kazoo or two) harken back to a time before the bloated over-amplyfied blues bands. In a more intimate take on music, these two musicians bring more feel, soul and fun to their comfy stage than most bands. Call it acoustic or semi-acoustic, front porch or back porch, it really doesn’t matter as the music contains elements of both. From Fats Waller to Bukka White to western swing’s Sunshine Boys, John Paul Drum & Bill Dye plays American music as it should be played; for real.
Bill has around 35 years of playing experience in various bands through the years. John Paul has twenty years as a band leader and front & sideman experience. The duo also perform in a 4-5 piece roots band with bass & drums; John Paul's Flying Circus.
