BandBlues

Levee Town is a roots-based band from Kansas City. Their original material reflects the blues, rock and roll, and country sounds that the four members have been most influenced by. Since their inception in 2002, the band has played festivals and venues throughout the US.

Biography

The band came together in late 2002 after Brandon Hudspeth and Jan Faircloth left the seminal Kansas City blues band the Cobalt Project. Both were leaning towards a different, more electric sound that would highlight their ever-growing musical preferences. That sound had much to do with a different instrumentation than they had previously been accustomed to. With this in mind, their harmonica-playing roomate Jimmie Meade seemed like an obvious choice both musically and personally. Jacque Garoutte (fresh off the road with Smokin' Joe Kubek) was brought on board and Levee Town was born. Since then the four have grown into a tight, musically adventrous group of musicians. Their original repertoire reflects a deep love and respect for musicians ranging from Muddy Waters and Little Walter to Bob Wills and Ernest Tubb to Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash. The band has taken their sound all over the US performing with or in support of, such artists as Tommy Castro, Sonny Landreth, W.C. Clark, Arc Angels, Eric Johnson, Eric Sardinas, Wayne "The Train" Hancock, Chubby Carrier, Anthony Gomes, and Lee McBee.
