Biography

Little Ivory Blues Band began as a blues instrumental trio in 2006 with Garrett Stoner on guitar, Seth Shoemaker on bass, and Aaron Lewis on drums, playing in a few local clubs and open mic venues. The introduction of Mike Rowland into the band as the new drummer offered Aaron an opportunity to focus on singing and harmonica, and allowed Little Ivory Blues band to develop it's unique style and sound. It was this signature style and sound that LIBB won first place at both the JCC and Penn State York Battles of the Bands, and third place at the 2007 BSCP Blues Challenge.

After some time, LIBB grew to include Lucas Hough on keyboard, Logan Kurtek on saxophone, Alex Degnan on Bass and Ian Staley, who filled the empty drum throne after Mike's departure to Temple University. Such is Little Ivory Blues Band as it exists today.

In September of 2008, LIBB took second place in the 2008 BSCP Blues Competition, and was invited to the 25th International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee to perform in the IBC Youth Showcase, where they not only blew away audiences, but earned themselves three on-the-spot paying gig offers, one of which at the biggest club on Beale St., Club 152. Even though the Youth Showcase was a great opportunity, their desire to one day compete in the IBC was still strong.

In September of 2009, they took first in the BSCP Blues Competition and were chosen to represent Central PA in Memphis, Tennessee at the 2010 International Blues Challenge!

Although still young, Little Ivory Blues Band has already racked up a considerable degree of valuable experience, developed a sizable fan base, and is rapidly becoming known for their unique approach and high-energy performances, having been listed among the Top 20 Bands in Central PA by 105.7 The X.

Now, with their whole lives ahead of them, they have every intention to keep moving forward at full speed in their everlasting endeavor to safeguard the Blues for future generations.
