Zac Harmon is an award-winning guitarist, organist, singer, and songwriter whose distinctive style combines the best of old-school soul-blues artists with modern lyrics and themes that bring the blues into a new century.  His new Blind Pig CD, Right Man Right Now, is contemporary music that proves just how alive and relevant the blues is today.

BluesWax said of a festival appearance, “Harmon’s stage show is like a Blues symphony where he segues from one song to the next without a moment’s hesitation, building a head of steam that is orgasmic.  Mixing classic boogie gliders with originals, he builds a West Side guitar sound that’s almost as sweet and simultaneously rough as classic Magic Sam into a showcase presentation that takes a lot of pages from Buddy Guy as far as dynamics. His hour on stage went by in an instant.”

    Jay White & the Blues Commanders are a group of seasoned musicians who know, live, and love the blues. They really know how to bring it when they’re on stage with one another and their album Jaywalkin’ will have you jamming’!" - Emily Acker "Soul" for Texas Music Pickers.
    "Jay White, a rare talent trifecta: a combination of great guitar work, gravelly blues vocal style with dead on pitch and a song writing ability that garnered him his first hit record before he was out of high school." - Rick Bell - Groove Music Magazine.
    "It was a great night , and a great First Friday crowd at the Grand Stafford Theater for Jay White and the Blues Commanders ! We can't remember the last time we saw a great blues band with such seasoned musicians and a killer set list . We been diggin' their record ..JAYWALKIN ..for some time - but the LIVE performance was awesome ! If somehow you thought " the thrill was gone " in blues music ...catch this band and then thank us later !" - Texas Music Pickers.

"One Mind, One Band, One Goal Playing Texas Music with Soul"

Their set will consist of their originals just to name a few such as "Taking your Memories" "Poor Man Blues"which made it on the Tx Country Music charts "Thief in the Night" and "Cocaine & Whiskey" a huge fan favorite.. And they love to mix it up too w a couple of blues songs, then maybe a good ole Alman Brothers tune, and then straight to an Elvis medley or a couple of honky tonks..You really never know but its always breath taking and leaves you and aww... So I say attend one of their shows hold on tight and enjoy the ride.
~ Shary Watson

His band has shared the stage with Bugs Henderson, Stoney LaRue and Wade Bowen, and he has enjoyed playing with Jarrod Birmingham, Tutu Jones
and other great artist, to mention a few. So what category does he fall into? The music category! I call his style Texas Blues Soul and Southern Rock

Born in Detroit and living in San Diego by way of Queens, New York, Missy Andersen follows her self-titled debut with a timeless follow-up of blues going straight to the spirit and body. With her band leader/guitarist/husband Heine Andersen, she has again created a personal soundtrack for good times and the pain and joys of love.
“In the Moment takes the listener through a wide range of emotions. The band is as tight as any I have heard, leaving Missy all the room she needs to deliver her stories with authority and an emotional power that grabs the listener and holds them to the very end. With a singleness of purpose and an honest love for the music, they deliver the goods in much the same way as Gladys Knight or Aretha Franklin..." -–Reflections In Blue/ By Bill Wilson/ August 2014
