Biography

Sea- food Frank Bourque (nicknamed for his culinary skills and gumbo style) plays exciting bottleneck in a traditional Mississippi Delta and Chicago approach.
He weaves in his blues harmonica, complimenting his soulful Canned Heat vocal styling.

In contrast, Ron Smith maintains drummer-like precision, holding the rhythm and adding tasty fills and dynamic Hendrix inspired solos as well as providing back up vocals. Ronni'S low tenor grow rounds out Frank'S sweet high melodies. "You can't believe all that sound comes from two guys." quoted the owner of the Gryphon Cafe in Wayne PA.

"We met at a popular Main Line fish store, Seafood USA where Frank works, after not seeing each other for years" informs CafeOle' founder Ronni Smith. "Frank smuggled me some lobster. crayfish and shrimp out the back door of the seafood joint and we been jammin ever since."

"Our blues is good time dance stuff" adds Frank Bourque, a veteran of the Philly music scene. "But we do other things as well...Beatles, Hot Tuna, James Taylor, Steely Dan."
Frank was an original founding member of Joint Effort and went on to play with popular fusion band Matrix.

Two4blues also features an eclectic mix of local Philly favorite musicians from time to time as well.
