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!

Weary Blues - 505 Blues Band

Jacob Crawford - Guitar and lead vocals Don Fenton - Harmonica and vocals Russ Maracle - Drums and vocals Donald Specker - Bass Dennis Montgomery - Keyboards

 505 is unique blend of musicians from many walks of life, brought together in 2007 to create a blues and funk combination sorely needed in the music industry. 505 steps up to the plate with a spicy twisted dance party of blues, rock, and funk. 505 can be just a number to some…but around these parts, it means some of the hottest blues to come this way in a long time! Jacob Crawford - Lead Guitar and Vocals: Baltimore, MD. Jacob found the guitar at 13. Along with his brother Jeff on drums, they formed their first band, Thursday Night Special and were spurred on by friends Riddy Becker of The Grilled Lincolns, John Petr of Brass Uncle Band and Mike Blumberg of Revolutionary Side Effects. While in college, Jacob explored songwriting and recorded his first CD, Taster Menu. Now in Grad school and 505, Jacob is unleashing his unfettered guitar licks on hot, contemporary blues with no boundaries and no end in sight. Donald Specker - Bass: Born in Queens, NY, Donald comes from a musical family and started his music career in public school, playing with his first band at age 14.
