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!

Who Your Real Friends Are - Homemade Jamz' Blues Band

Homemade Jamz Blues Band is a Tupelo, Mississippi music trio consisting of siblings Ryan (vocal and guitar), Kyle (bass) and Taya (drums) Perry. In December 2007, the trio made music history as the youngest blues band to achieve a record deal: Toronto-based NorthernBlues Music signed the band when Ryan was 16, Kyle was 14 and Taya was 9.
Their debut album, Pay Me No Mind, was released in June 2008.

Homemade Jamz Blues Band has played in blues festivals and concert engagements across North America and Europe; in some sets, their father backs them on harmonica.[3] On june 2008 they played on 'B.B.King Homecoming' (Indianola Mississippi). They won second place in the band category at the 23rd International Blues Challenge, and won the Bay Area Blues Society's West Coast Hall of Fame Blues New Artist of the Year for 2008.

Aside from their youth, the band has been noted for their homemade instruments: the guitar and bass used by Ryan and Kyle, respectively, are crafted from Ford automobile parts that still feature the manufacturer's logo
