For the past several years the Doghouse Daddies have been 'Blues'n' the Kansas City and surrounding areas with their dynamic and enthusiastic performances, making them one of the top Blues bands from the Midwest.
The 'Daddies' love and passion for the Blues gives them the inspiration to push themselves to limits they had never imagined. They have gained not only Local, Regional, and National notariety, but they have also gotten International recognition as well, being played on over 300 radio stations worldwide.
The Scottyboy Daniel Blues Band is a veteran 4 piece blues band consisting of Harmonica, Guitar, Bass and Drums based out of the Kansas City, Mo area. They mostly play blues in the Chicago and West Coast styles whether it is their own original material or covers.
Levee Town is a radiantly hot rockin' Americana foursome out of Kansas City. Their music ranges from covers of Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, Freddie King, Bob Dylan, and Big Joe Turner, to originals like Go to Heaven, The Winter song, and Forgive the Intrusion. The sound is a searing mix of traditional rock'n'roll, blues, and rockabilly.
The beat is supplied by Jan "Big Show" Faircloth. He is originally from central Kansas, and builds the rock solid foundation of Levee Town's rhythm. He can mesmerize you with a constant count, bang'em like Bonham, or tickle your ears with the brushes. Jan even sings chorus.
Jacque Garoutte multi-instrumentalist arranger and producer fills in the bass with years of musical experience. From Miami Oklahoma, Jacque lays down a deep strong bass line, supplies quite bit of energy onstage, and sings with a smooth single malt voice.
From Chicago, Jimmie Meade plays the harmonica like a man possessed by…angels and demons alike. He will make you smile as he jumps and jives during his intense harp and vocal renditions of Dylan and Waters.
While growing up in central Oklahoma, Brandon Hudspeth saw Johnny Cash on Sesame Street and had to start pickin' on guitars. As he sings, he rings the neck of his wide body Gibson like its a Flying Vee dipped in gasoline.
These guys are blazing hot! They will cause you to stomp your feet, clap your hands, and maybe dance on the tables. Levee Town generates a lot of excitement and a smokin' good time. For your own protection, you better wear a fire suit!
When was the last time you saw a three-piece family blues band with two left-handed guitarists? Let alone a blues band with two strong vocals both female and male?
Trampled Under Foot, winners of the 2008 International Blues Challenge, is like no other band you will ever see. Danielle is an amazing blues singer and an excellent bassist. Kris fires right in the pocket on the drums and sings as well. Nick is a strong singer and an accomplished guitarist, winning the 2008 Albert King Award from the IBC.
