STEVE GUYGER

Claiming the harmonica as his instrument of choice, Steve Guyger has been studying the blues since his teens. Mastering the intense grittiness of Chicago-style harp playing landed Guyger one of his best gigs in 1980; a call from Jimmy Rogers. Blues Access magazine claims, "All the years ... of touring with the legendary Jimmy Rogers has made Steve Guyger one of the greatest blues harp men in the world." Guyger's performances are enhanced by his fine clear voice and his preservation of harp tradition with a unique and refreshing twist!

CLARENCE SPADY

Raised in Scranton Pennsylvania, where he still lives, Clarence Spady is accredited with defining the 1990's blues scene. Raised by a musical family and encouraged to pursue blues, Spady started touring right out of high school. By the '90's, this singer/guitarist decided to head out and tour with a band of his own. Clarence Spady's skills as a songwriter paired with his solid mastery of guitar transcends typical blues performances, leaving audiences clamoring for more of his unique & intelligent sound.
