Having a Good Day!
John C Andersen
From a family of local blues guitarists including the late Roy Andersen, best known for his work in the "Buddy King Band".

Loves alternating guitars in a set,  anywhere from a “Delta Slide to his favorite Strat”.

Musical Influences:

Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix, Elmore James, Robert Johnson, Coco Montoya, John Mayer... and the list goes on


Favorite Songs the Band Plays?

Probably "Dust My Broom" which is an old Elmore James song.  It's old Chicago blues with lot's of slide work.  Darren does a great job with the vocals.  The audience will get up on their feet every time! 

We really just play a lot of great stuff!  From BB King, Stevie Ray, Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, Guitar Slim, Muddy Waters ...

Our verson of "Ain't No Sunshine" is killer. Great vocals by Cliff, Darren breaths new life into an already great song! 

"It's all good"!
