A little background...
The Big House Blues Band offers a combination of diversified musicians working to serve a blend of classic blues and blues-rock with a distinct sound that combines elements of ZZ Top, Muddy Waters, Gary Moore, Maria Muldaur and Eric Clapton with the Blues Brothers!
Members of the Big House Blues Band have collaborated musically for over 20 years. The Big House Blues Band itself is the morphed result of a number of blues bands that were formed by "Big Daddy" Doug and Jimi Ray since 1986!
The combination of musicianship and genuine friendship between the individual members of the group produces an incredible level of tightness in their music and a camaraderie between members - something rarely heard of in these days of "American Idol" and manufactured bands.
