Artist: Jimmy Anderson Blues Band
For 30 years, guitarist Jimmy Anderson has been playing music all over the southeast United States. He has explored many different genres from rock to jazz, top 40 to heavy metal, even some disco (omg!), but has always returned to his roots…the blues.
Born during the great depression to poor a black family, he started playing guitar on the front porch while he waited for his daddy to come home from the fields…wait, that’s somebody else…but you wouldn’t know it to listen to the soul that fills his writing.
In 2008, he and bassist Dave Tregunna (not his real name) began looking for musicians to form a blues band with a fresh new style. Guitarist Alex Horvath (yes, that’s his real name) and drummer George Coleman (again, real), would become the final pieces to what would soon be the best blues band in the country… (just ask them).
With influences such as Albert King, BB King, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix, Luther Allison, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Mark Knopfler, Eric Clapton, (I know…wow!), the band’s sound is like no other, and they plan on proving that to you for the next thirty or forty years, if you’ll have them.
blues where it counts
