Ron McManaman and Crosstown Blues Band

Ron McManaman and Crosstown Blues Band

BandBluesRock

Custom Country Blues and Blues/Rock Chicago style Blues. Original and fresh with mostly a positive take on Blues type subjects. The lyrics and strong and the "meat on the bone," of the song. Guitar leads are energizing and fresh. Harmonica playing is excellent.

Biography

Songs written by Ron McManaman. Ron has two solo albums which the band performs. He also has a CD with the band Dog Town which is now disbanded, but songs are being performed by Crosstown Blues Band. The music is similar to Elric Clapton, JJ Cale, John Lee Hooker, Willie Dixon. All four of these players would be proud to play some of Ron's blues songs. The music is not typical blues rock music as played by any local blues band. The lyrics are engaging and meaningful and the groove is fun. The Crosstown Blues Band is recording some more of Ron's new songs in the studio now.
