Red-hot blues trio featuring the smokin' guitar and outstanding vocals of Baby Jason Davis, backed by a veteran rhythm section featuring David Watson on drums and Larry Boehmer on bass. Collectively, this band has over 80 years of playing experience.

Biography

The Tablerockers are influenced by a variety of musical styles that include Delta blues, Chicago and Texas blues, R & B, soul, rock-a-billy, jazz, funk, rock 'n' roll and even country, all filtered through the Tablerockers' blues sensibilities. The result is a high-powered blues attack featuring the smokin' guitar and soulful vocals of Baby Jason Davis, and the tight grooves provided by Larry Boehmer on bass and David Watson on drums.
Guitarist and vocalist, Baby Jason, toured for 10 years with his trio, "Baby Jason and the Spankers". During that period, they played some of the top blues venues in the country, including Buddy Guy's Legends, Antones, the Grand Emporium, the Zoo Bar, and Blues On Grand.
Drummer David Watson was born and raised in Dallas where he learned to shuffle from two of the best...his uncle Doyle Bramhall and the late Freddie Walden. David played with Keith Ferguson and Mr. Conrad in the Excellos and was also Anson Funderburgh's first drummer. David brings over 30 years of playing experience to the Tablerockers.
Bassist Larry Boehmer rounds out the trio and is the only current Tablerocker to have played with the "Nebraska" Tablerockers from 1981-1991. Boehmer also played with The Heartmurmurs, Not All There and Bobby Lowell and the Rocka-Boogie-Boys. Some of the top names in blues have used Larry for club dates, tours and festivals including Charlie Musselwhite, Snooky Pryor, Carey Bell, Joe Houston, Larry Davis, and Magic Slim.
The Tablerockers continue to work clubs and festivals around the country as a trio, as half of the 6-pc. blues band 'Old School', and as the occasional back-up band for James Harman, RJ Mischo, and Lewis Cowdrey.
