BLUES REDEMPTION


Blues Redemption is comprised of four multi-talented, award winning Puget Sound area musicians sharing a common passion for Blues music. Dedicated to the genre, they have been playing The Blues all their musical careers.

Brian Feist is a guitarist with an uncommon sense of melody, swing, and deep passion. If you love the blues in the tradition of early Clapton, B.B. King, Peter Green and Michael Bloomfield, then you will be transported when you hear him play.

Having toured locally and nationally, Doug Skoog has played piano with legendary greats such as Chuck Berry and John Lee Hooker. Formerly with Blue Tale Fly Band, a back up band for James Cotton and opening act for Siegel Schwall Band, John Prime, Sam Lay and Legendary Blues Band with Pine Top Perkins. Doug's piano playing has been described as funky, tight and sometimes complicated or, in Chuck Berry's words, after stopping his show to feature Doug's solo, "This player is from my Al Ma Mater." Doug's soulfulness is heavily influenced by Delta Blues, Chicago Blues and Gospel piano styles.

Joe Hendershot has played almost exclusively in the Puget Sound area throughout his musical career. Joe has played in a ton of bands since the late 60's including Goldbrick, Deep Summer, Sleeping Village, The Village Band, Mariah, Magnum, Adrian, Wild Honey, Pamela Moore, Flight, Billy Street, Stackhouse, New Blues Brothers Revue, Rapture and Lion Heart. Having played soft rock, hard rock, pop rock, country rock, Christian rock, rhythm and blues, funk, and even jazz standards, Joe feels right at home playing the blues and loves the freedom of expression it affords him.

An award winning drummer, Billy "Hot Pocket" Barner* a.k.a. "The Pocket" has performed internationally. His musical genre spans all styles from Rock, Blues, Motown, Soul, Funk, Afro/Cuban and New Orleans Second Line to Jazz and Country.

STACY JONES BAND


Stacy Jones has had the opportunity to share her cut-loose harp riffs and sultry chops with some of the most well known blues musicians around.

Born and raised in Seattle, Stacy began playing the piano at four years old. At seven she picked up the guitar and at eight her father, Tom, started bringing her up on stage to sing Hank Williams tunes with his band -- she hasn't been able to stay away from the stage since.

Stacy met up with Beth Wulff at fourteen and that's when she was truly introduced to the blues. At sixteen she started learning how to rip on the harmonica and became a regular at The Scarlet Tree blues jams where she met Annieville and had the opportunity to trade riffs with Alice Stuart, Mark Dufresnes (Roomful of Blues), Mark Whitman, Dave Conant and many other incredible musicians.

A few years later Stacy got the opportunity to play with "The Seattle Blues" headed by Tim Sherman and John Hodgkin. This experience opened several doors for her and after meeting Ray Hartman, the former bass player with Dick Powell (Little Bill and the Blues Notes), they gathered several astounding musicians and formed "The Stacy Jones Band".

Stacy then had the opportunity to play with the "Highway 99 Blues AllStars" with Randy Oxford, Jerry Lee Davidson, Virginia Klemens, John Lee, Hod Rod, and Steve Starkowski. As well as being The Hwy 99 house band they performed at the 2005 Bumbershoot Festival opening for Sonny Landreth and Buckwheat Zydeco.

Stacy performed for the last two years as Stacy Jones and the Wolf Tones with Beth and Jim Wulff, Jeff Menteer and her father Tom Jones. The group produced an all original CD consisting of 11 tunes.

Stacy has also had the recent opportunity to share the stage with Elvin Bishop, several members of his band, Scott Sutherland and Mike Emerson of the Tommy Castro Band, Bobby Murray and Dave Mathews of Etta James' Roots Band, and The John Nemeth Band on the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise.

Seattle's Massy Ferguson has taken their raucous rock americana to the far reaches of the globe. In the past three years, the four-piece band has played shows in Melbourne, Australia, Munich, Germany and Puerto Pinasco, Mexico, to name just a few destinations.
Despite this penchant for the international, Massy Ferguson remains local to the bone, a fixture on the burgeoning Seattle roots music scene that has spawned the likes of Brandi Carlisle and The Fleet Foxes.

In 2008, Massy Ferguson released their full-length debut album, Cold Equations, which garnered rave reviews nationally despite being independently released. Music tastemaker Bruce Warren of WXPN Radio in Philadelphia made Massy Ferguson his Download of the Day, calling their album "an impressive record." Cold Equations also made waves in Seattle, getting serious spins on Seattle's highly influential non-commercial station KEXP and commercial station KMTT "The Mountain."
