About the Artists:

Bobby Hunt & the Day Drinkers are a newly formed group of Michiana blues scene veterans. The band performs original rockin’ blues songs written by singer guitarist Rob Hutt and swingin’ Harmonica based jump blues fueled by the dynamic style of local harmonica wizard “Catman” Ballard. The rhythm section of Brian Reedstrom on Keyboards and electric Bass along with Boris LaRue on the drums completes the picture. The band is regularly featured on local blues radio and have recently released a 5 song EP available for streaming.

The Resurrection Blues Band has been a local Southwest Michigan favorite for many years now. Between Good Times, Bad Times, & the Blues, the Resurrection Blues Band has kept a faithful following throughout the years, and they have no plans on slowing down. With a live concert video available on YouTube to their upcoming EP release, The Good, The Bad, & The Blues set to release in 2024, you won't be sorry to have witnessed the Resurrection & Rise of Southwest Michigan's Power Blues/Rock Trio, the Resurrection Blues Band!
