BOBBY RADCLIFF

DECEMBER 1st 2010 - 7 PM 

Growing up in Maryland, Bobby Radcliff began his guitar education with classical guitar lessons at the age of 12. Following his initiation into the music world, Radcliff moved to New York City in 1977 where Black Top records took a liking to his “strengths as a soloist, as well as a funky rhythm guitarist”. (WFLR-FM) Having toured the US, Canada, and Europe more than a dozen times Radcliff always leaves audiences stunned with “his jaw-dropping skills as a guitarist.” (Blues Review)

SLAM ALLEN

With Slam Allen, it's "rhythm and blues, plain and simple". (Blues Review) A relief from drawn out guitar solos and cluttered arrangements, this upstate New Yorker has been able to highlight simple funk and soul music using his legendary showmanship, unique style, and no-frills approach to the blues. Honing his skills as a musician by playing with his father's R&B band while growing up, Slam Allen's musical influences came from life experience.
"Slam Allen has a gift for picking a rainbow of notes around a line, and popping them off his own groove like drops of water on a red-hot griddle - his success is inevitable." (Woodstock Times)

FRANK MORREY

Frank Morey has been enticing international audiences with his "witty, gritty blues" since the 1990's. (Boston Globe) This New England native serves up performances of both covers and originals on his acoustic guitar and harmonica "with true skill at storytelling and singing". (Well Rounded Radio) While Tom Waits seems to be his most common comparison, Morey draws from a wealth of influences ranging from Louis Armstrong, Howlin' Wolf & Ray Charles to folk greats Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen. If you thought you knew folk rock --- think again with Frank Morey's unconventional & "eminently hummable" performances! (Minor 7th)

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!

STEVE GUYGER AND BOBBY RADCLIFF

Both east coast born Steve Guyger (Pennsylvania) and Bobby Radcliff (Maryland) are working together to keep Chicago blues tradition alive in NYC. Guyger and Radcliff, each having been influenced by blues legends Jimmy Rogers and "Magic Sam" respectively, are two veterans of the circuit that are set to "wow" with every performance. "Phenomenally gifted," Radcliff and "monster [harp] player" Guyger are the perfect combination for your Chicago blues fix. (Blues Review) (Mark Hummel)

This 5 time Blues Music award nominee "is no "rocker" masquerading as a "bluesman", no "Hendrix wanna be" - he is simply true to his ... heart and the rockin' soul in his music."

Always supporting and encouraging the cause of keeping blues alive, Schinnery has become a regular on the international as well as local blues scene. "With his band, a solo performer, or with his guitar Ray is a master showman..."

BILL & CHANEY SIMS

Bill Sims Jr. doesn’t allow any 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. Performing regularly at Terra Blues, audiences have the pleasure of hearing him perform with his talented daughter Chaney Sims. Chaney’s similarly “earthy and relaxed” voice makes her the perfect duet partner. (Time Out NY)

CLARENCE SPADY

This New Yorker's deeply engrained love for all things blues leaves no room for obstacles in life or performance.
