Led by The Washington Blues Society's choice for "best electric guitarist" for 2003, this band has a similar line-up to Becki Sue & her Big Rockin' Daddies!.  This is Northwest meets Texas meets Chicago blues at it's finest.  Presented as a showcase, T-Boy uses all of the considerable talents of his well traveled bandmates to put on a full blown 'blues review".  Don't be surprised to see a special guest pop in every now and then, such as blues harp god, Doug Lynn Caulkins, when he's in town.  T-Boy will release a compilation cd in July of 2003, featuring mostly original songs and collaborations with the players mentioned above, backed up by a virtual "who's who" of northwest blues greats, recorded over a 16 year period between 1987-2002.  Pick it up at his gigs.
