The best kept secret in music


"Blues Boosters"

A dynamic and innovative modern Blues Trio.

New to the Bay Area Blues scene...They are always a crowd pleaser with a song list that covers a wide range of styles from the 1920's to the 21st century. Unusual arrangements and expert timing set them apart. This ain't no Jam Band.

If you want to see modern Blues done by pros check out this new exciting act.

Guitarist and vocalist J. Shelby has a smooth Style that is comfortable with Rockin' Blues, Swing Blues and Jazzing Big Band-style Blues and has a pleasant midrange voice...

....is tight, disciplined and innovative.

Glade Rasmussen is most likely the best bassist one will ever hear in a small venue -- truly one of the greats."

Feeling a bit camera shy
