Philadelphia''s The Blue Method brings together the sounds of old school and douses them with a modern influence of fusion, funk and experimental rock. When on stage, the band strives to make each and every person in the crowd move to the sounds they lay down from deep thumping funk to smooth grooving soul. Fronted by the powerful Brian Williams, The Blue Method are on their way to becoming one of the finest funk outfits in the country. Having recently returned from their incredibly well received tour of the Midwest, the band is poised to take on new markets and to make sure no funk fan is left untouched by their amazing live show.
