The best kept secret in music


"The Ages of Bumbershoot"

Best entertainment: Jude Bowerman Band's rendition of "Voodoo Chile," ... was not only filled with hot, bluesy riffs, but infused with funky bass downbeats and varying tempos that always grooved. - Seattle Times

"Hey Jude"

...They're energetic entertainers, and their blues-groove, jazz funk, reggae tinged tunes come off as warm, endearing, inviting and fun. They're committed to the music, and it shows; their style has an infectious happy energy and the boys in the band have ineffable chemistry – no small part of their undeniable popularity and success...." - The Sitting Duck

"Seattle Band Brings the Groove"

...Falling along similar frequencies as Spearhead and Ben Harper, Seattle's Jude Bowerman and his band brew up some heavy, booty-shaking funk....Bowerman's brand of funk has grooves so deep you can get lost in them...." - Spokesman Review

"Hey, Jude Didn't Let Me Down"

...The performance builds over an hour, with crescendo after crescendo,like Jude is builidng to some kind of climatic finale....Jude walks down into the crowd, and they part like the sea for Moses, and he's walking around the park, shaking hands, shouting greetings...., never losing a lick while he wanders around the crowd... - Tacoma City Paper

Feeling a bit camera shy


Praised for his raw talent and immense guitar skills, Jude Bowerman’s original music unseats audiences all night and sends them home dripping with smiles and sweat.  Whether it’s his in-your-face gifted guitar playing, his insightful lyrics surrounding the human condition, performing 150+ shows every year in front of thousands of fans, or the way he interacts with the fans before, during and after shows – it’s obvious that Jude’s passion stems from the people in his life. 

Jude is surrounded by a group of veterans who have worked with everyone from Ani DiFranco and Pearl Jam's Dave Abbruzesse to Screaming Trees and Dusty 45's Mark Pickerel and Matt Chamberlin (who’s played with Macy Gray, Tori Amos, Edie Brickel, and Critters Buggin). Dale Fanning (drums) and Jon Markel (bass) form a funk-solid rhythm section honed through the band's non-stop touring and on-stage creativity. Nathan Spicer solidifies the lineup on B-3, Fender Rhodes and Hohner Clavinet.

Jude has been compared lyrically to artists such as Michael Franti (Spearhead) and Ben Harper, and his guitar playing to the legendary Buddy Guy and Stevie Ray Vaughan.  He has shared the stage with diverse musical greats including funk/jazz keyboard player Robert Walter’s 20th Congress, rock icon George Thorogood, blues legend Johnny Winter and was even personally requested to open for Peter Frampton. 

Jude’s new live CD, Just Press Play (produced on his own label, Yellow Tone Records) is already receiving rave reviews - as is the DVD of the same live 2005 festival performance. 

Seeing a Jude Bowerman performance gives fans the opportunity to take home a raging, guitar slinging, crowd rockin’ show. Along with intense crowd interaction, tasteful and fiery guitar playing, a rich, dynamic, soulful voice and instantly memorable song writing, this is "the show” that proves live music is the best kind of music.
