Q&A with Detroit-based guitarist Dennis Coffey - worked with the list of iconic artists, producers and writers

Posted on October 30, 2020 at 8:30pm 0 Comments

"The musicians in Detroit were all friends. No one cared what race or heritage you were as long as you could play. We never knew what songs we played on would be hits. We just made sure the producer and arranger were happy with our performance on each song and moved on to the next song."

"Blues by tradition has been a way to unload your miseries, but it can be a Healer too. It’s an important musical genre for the people who can identify with it releasing all kind of feelings."

Q&A with East Coast guitarist Peter Veteska, steaming full-bore blues, funk, soul and swinging good time music

Posted on October 24, 2020 at 5:30pm 0 Comments

"I think it’s fair to say at least from my perspective most blues guys & gals' politics lean to the left. Blues emanates from black culture who struggled & suffered in America where there was a lot of racial tension."

Peter Veteska: Blues Train Running

After a long hiatus from the music scene, lead guitar man and vocalist Peter Veteska…

Q&A with Endrick Tremblay - hailing from Montreal, Endrick and the Sandwiches play frenetic blues rock

Posted on October 23, 2020 at 9:30am 0 Comments

"I think that the impact of blues rock is year after year less powerful, because it’s been mainly a man type of music. It even became a white man type of music through the years. I think that society has a craving for new types of models and if the blues rock genre isn’t able to reinvent itself, people will look someplace else."

Endrick & The Sandwiches:…

Interview with Cincinnati based Dudley Taft - a tour de force artist - brings raucous and righteous Rock n' Blues

Posted on October 21, 2020 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

"Well, blues along with jazz was invented by African Americans, so in a way, it has done good things for black people in the US. This music brings whites and blacks together. That was especially important in the 1950’s and 60’s here. But now blues inhabits a very small community and has little social implications."

Dudley Taft: Cosmic (Rock n' Blues) Life…

Q&A with multitalented Roland Parijs - translator, calligrapher, painting artist and passionate dancer

Posted on October 20, 2020 at 11:00am 0 Comments

"Literature allows you to see through the eyes of others, feel, enjoy or suffer like they do. It enables you to reactivate your own problems. Music binds people without saying a word. Every time I dance man and woman dance with me, and during the dance we have a strong connection. I see their eyes lit up. It is the most wonderful thing!"

Roland Parijs: Let The Good Times…

Q&A with Nate Wooley, one of the most in-demand trumpet players in the burgeoning Brooklyn jazz, improv, and music scenes

Posted on October 19, 2020 at 5:30pm 0 Comments

"I think we could change a lot of things about how we treat each other, listen to each other, empathize, and care for one another, but that’s a human problem, not a music industry problem. In some ways, as musicians, we do it better than the broad population, but I’ve also seen examples of us (including myself) doing it worse."

Rick Fines: Solar Power Emotions

Q&A with Texas-based Hamilton Loomis - “This Season” brings us hope – at a time when it’s needed most

Posted on October 15, 2020 at 5:30pm 0 Comments

"First of all, I think that it's important that people realize and understand the struggles and hardships Black Americans were going through when this music was first created, and how it literally influenced all American music to follow. Also, it's important for musicians of my generation to educate the younger generations on this topic, and how important Blues is for our history."

Hamilton Loomis:…
