"I got the blues and it's oh so good"

With bits of rock n roll, classic swing jazz, country blues, folk, jump blues and R&B masterfully blended. Roundhouse put together a collection of original tunes that twist these disparate elements together with grace. The result is a great listening disc."
- - Dale Robin Lockman, York County Coast Star

"Roundhouse Self-Titled CD"

I was drawn right in by a great sounding band with a great sounding recording....There must be something good in the water out on the coast. - - James LeBoeuf, NoMaSoNHa Magazine

"ROUNDHOUSE wins Maine Blues Society's "Road To Memphis""

...this band displays a range, diversity and unique style fitting of national acclaim. - - Phil Whipple, The Blues Audience





Some time around the year 2000, Mike Rogers and Buddy Shute met at a song swap in Kennebunk, Maine. The two hit it off both personally and musically. It was a perfect marriage of rural blues. Buddy, raised in Memphis and hailing from New Orleans and Arkansas, brought the funky grooves of the delta. Mike, heavily influenced by the great Sonny Terry, brought his 40 years of folk and acoustic blues. Together they formed a gritty, acoustic blues duo. So in the winter of 2003 when Mike and his Son, drummer Joe Rogers, decided to put a band together, this duo seemed like the perfect place to start. The three added bass player Brian Coleman, and ROUNDHOUSE was born. That summer they added musical chameleon, guitarist D. W. Graf, and the band really hit its swing. Leaving to pursue other artistic endeavors, Brian Coleman has been replaced by D.W. Graf's long time musical compatriot Doug Green.

Combining the musical influences of all the players, ROUNDHOUSE is a blend of New Orleans Jazz and Funk, Jump Blues, Swing, Rock 'n Roll, and a little bit of rural Blues and Country. While the band really has no musical boundaries, blues is the most common category. One thing is for sure, it's difficult to stay seated when you see them perform.
