JR. DE VILLE BLUES BAND
In the fall of 1997 guitarist Jr. De Ville and drummer Nick Woodson formed the band called The Electric Church as a project for a music class at the local junior college playing cover tunes from Jimi Hendrix to the Rolling Stones.. As their love for the blues grew and the band evolved they started to incorporate the music of T-Bone walker, Albert Collins and Stevie Ray Vaughn just to name a few, finding their identity as a blues band. They started their journey playing at the local bars and pubs for tips if any. In 1999 bassist Chris Meek and in 2000 Keyboardist Mike Blankenship joined what is now called the Jr. De Ville Blues Band. From there the band went on to perform at all of the hottest blues clubs and festivals in Northern California and beyond.. In 2003 they released their debut album "Just a Blues Cat" which went on to get radio play and recognition around the world with such radio shows as "The house of blues" with Dan Ackroyd as Blues Brother Elwood Blues. And now, after a long hiatus the Jr. De Ville Blues Band is back and ready to take the blues scene by storm once again!
