Bluestar Band

Blues, Jazz


 
The Blues started quite a while ago.
Authentic Blues is what folks are really looking for.
You can't just sing the blues.
You can't just play the blues.
You gotta live the blues.

Kevin O'Connor began playing the blues, singing the blues, at a young age in Chicago. He performed with International artists, including some from Howlin' Wolf's Band. Kevin has performed at festivals, and in Italy and Spain. Bluestar brings blues favorites from Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, and Stevie Ray Vaughn, plus some jazz from Cannonball Adderly, Miles Davis, and the Crusaders. Carolyn Davis on keys, Beth Hammer on bass, Michael Pawlus Sax, and Vinny Vingelli drums.
