Come and jive to their dynamic live performance--their remarkable intensity and sensibility, their soulful and searingly musical blend.

If edgy slide-guitar and howling electrified harp are the hallmarks of Chicago Blues, then Studebaker John is the home-town boy who takes that tradition into the future. Inspired by Hound Dog Taylor and
JB Hutto, John can thrash out a boogie while playing a lead-guitar line on top and singing with a light but penetrating voice. He writes great songs, and his tone on the ‘Mississippi Saxophone’ has a spacious feel, reminiscent of "Shakey" Horton.

Drummer Liviu Pop plays a wide variety of genres--blues, soul, funk, jazz, electronic and experimental. He was inducted into the Connecticut Blues Hall of Fame in 2018 and has played throughout New England, the United States, and Europe. He's performed with many blues artists, including Hubert Sumlin, Sam Lay, Lucky Peterson, Debbie Davies, Lil’ Dave Thompson, and Toni Lynn Washington. Check out his playing HERE.

It's SURE to be a memorable experience
