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!

Little Wing - The Sad Sam Blues Band

Sadie Johnson - lead guitar, writer, vocals
Sam Johnson - bass guitar
Lydia Elmer - vocals
Jake Gates - drums

Wes Schrimsher - sax, keyboard

Sam (16) and Sadie (14) are sisters that love to play blues and jazz. Sadie is a budding Eric Clapton and Sam is her rock, playing rhythm and bass.

The Sad Sam Blues Jam began as a sister guitar duo in 2010, playing a mix of jazz and blues. They love adding friends to join them and have found an amazing vocalist, Lydia Elmer who adds the perfect bluesy tone or clean straight jazz to anything they play. She also plays trombone and piano.

We love have our friends join in, and as long as we are having fun...the music will follow! And we always LOVE an open jam!

Jake Gates has been our drummer for the past year and he is the best!! He will be going off to college, but we hope to play with him as his schedule permits.

Wes Schrimsher is always fun to add into the mix. He is a beast on the saxophone and keyboards. His voice is just as amazing, reminiscent of Frank Sinatra!

Sam and Sadie also lead the Praise and Worship band at their church every Sunday, arranging all aspects of vocals and instruments.

Between rehearsals, gigs, church and writing new songs...they keep very busy and Sadie hopes to achieve her dream of becoming a professional musician. Sam will end up on broadway...or be a writer. Although she loves to teach as well.

Sam and Sadie began playing piano at 5 & 6. They started guitar lessons while still in Virginia Beach around 7 & 8. After moving to Bloomington, they were blessed to find Joe Lisinicchia and have been studying with him for 6 years now. Sam began clarinet in junior high and now plays bass, piano and drums as well. Sadie's main focus is lead guitar leaning heavily in jazz/blues. Sam plays rhythm guitar and the two play quite well together.
