We strive to bring passionate and energetic music to our listeners, while also engaging them in a long tradition of blues inspired music. But we're no straight ahead blues band. We can bring it across the board.

Biography

Lucas Biespiel was fifteen when he played his first show at a small club in Portland named the Satyricon, a venue that is well known for being the meeting place of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love. A talented violinist and singer, he quickly emerged as one of Portland's rising talents as the front man and lead singer for the Backyard Blues Boys. In a review of the BBBs album, “Tradin’ Twelves,” (2011) CBA President Greg Johnson called his songwriting, “down-right amazing.”

After relocating to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music, Biespiel began writing a new wave of material, which spawned his band, Lucas Biespiel and his Dangerous Gentlemen. The band is a group of Boston's finest young talents, bringing different styles and backgrounds together in an enriched fashion. Their debut Album, "Stories of Your Sorrows" is set to be released on October 1st, 2013, and will feature a wide spectrum of American styles of music, from country to R&B to funk to rock, and it's all rooted in the blues.

Lyrics

Preacher

Written By: Lucas Biespiel

He walks home in the rain.
A shadow follows closely by and stalks, he goes
In and out of his pain.
Make pretend that ignoring it will send it all away.

He had a boy in the war.
Left behind to kill a little more, and it
Wore him down to his core.
A sleepless man, a preacher from before and he

Tells you tales from the bible.
He knows them all by heart.
But spirits can’t change the past, and he knows
Pain can’t be fought.

Chorus:
I’m in love with a black-faced man and the horse he rode
‘Cause I love dwelling on my pain.
I’m just sitting right here.
He’s just sitting right here.

Sleepless nights on the road.
He makes time to think it all through, then he
Cries out like a crow.
A selfish imitation of hello.

And I listen to him.
He’s with me all the time.
I can always whistle for him.
He’s like a devil in the sky.

Chorus

“Someone’s gonna save me when I’m gone,” I heard him say.
Someone’s gonna save me when I’m gone.
“Whisper to the heavens and they’ll save you when you say it.
Just like they saved my only son.”

Chorus
