SIMS-SKOLLER

march 16th, 2017

thursday - 7 PM

Bill Sims Jr. doesn't allow one blues genre define his personal playing style. Raised in Ohio, Bill Sims turned professional at the age of 14 and went on to learn piano and major in music at Ohio State University. After touring with doo-wop rhythm & blues groups and experimenting in avant-garde jazz, Sims returned to the blues. Bill Sims Jr is considered one of the best NYC guitar/singer front men and comes complete with a 10-hour PBS special on his life’s works.

Firmly engrained in the Chicago Blues' traditions, Matt Skoller's unique harmonica stylings have a simultaneous past and present that have represented the Chicago Blues' scene for nearly 20 years. Since 1992, Skoller has formed his own band to rave reviews and impressive performance residencies. "Skoller's warm, raspy vocals and succinct harmonica work radiate confidence and maturity without flashy exhibitionism. Today he enjoys a hard-won reputation as one of the foremost harp players in the huge talent pool of the Chicago blues scene..." (Blues Review)

Claiming the harmonica ads his instrument of choice, Steve Guyger has been studying the blues since his teens.
