Feeling a bit camera shy


Band leader, vocalist, and guitarist Roger Girke is a 25 year veteran of the east coast blues scene. His soulful vocal style evokes the great Stax/Volt masters, and his articulate guitar skills reflect such diverse influences as Jimmy Vaughan, Carlos Santana, Anson Funderburgh, T-Bone Walker, and Keb Mo. Guitarist Joe LaSorte has paid his dues for over 20 years playing around the USA (including a three year stint in Chicago with Sam Cockrell's band). His playing shows the influences of his long time heroes Albert Collins, Albert King, Robben Ford and Jeff Beck. Girke and LaSorte have playing styles that compliment each other to a degree rarely seen in other blues bands. The band is rounded out by Ian Greaves (drums), Jimmy Pritchard (bass), Glenn Bickell (keyboards), and Pete Mayforth (sax), all masters of their instruments and veterans of the blues scene.
