CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Eddie King and the Swamp Bees

The Swamp Bees! Originally formed as Eddie King's backup band for his Ohio gigs, we decided to keep a good thing going and play our own gigs, too. Our individual resumes are a mile long, but here's a brief rundown: Fred Gillespie - Gregg Clark Band, Beaumonts, Low Rent Blues Band. Randy Smith - Bosstones, Cleavers, Vettes. Steve Barton - Gregg Clark Band, Beaumonts, Jumbo Junior, Raised By Possums. Doug Daniels- Third Stone Oracle. Ladies and Gentlemen, This is a talented band. We have shifted our focus a little bit, we've decided to incorporate soul and classic rock into our reportoire. What that means, is, We can slam you down some Muddy, jiggle your innards with some Rolling Stones, or lay down some Steely Dan on your inner jazz fool. All that said - a note to honor former members and their efforts - Jimmy Rogers, keyboards, vocals; James Higgins, bass; Greg Hamilton, keyboards, vocals, Tim Barton, drums. You will see more of these fellows if you already haven't (I wouldn't believe that anyway) - a very talented bunch of musicians whom it's been a privilege to share the stage with.
