“One of the best bands around” “Incredibly talented” “Authentic” “Spontaneous” “Fantastic”

-Just a few of the accolades and compliments from those who’ve experienced a Funky Bluester performance.


With roots firmly planted in the foundations of the electric blues masters who preceded them, Funky Bluester pays the reverence and homage due to the masters while simultaneously being unbound by traditional blues formats.

Funky Bluester has been earning a reputation as a must-see live blues act in Atlanta and around the southeast. Drawing from influences in all types of music, the quartet pumps out gritty, grinding, and swinging blues that hearken back to the alleys of Chicago and the roadhouses of Texas, but at any moment can turn on a dime into a magical, spontaneous musical journey that only happens musicians who are completely in tune with each other perform together live.

Recent shows in Atlanta include the legendary Blind Willie's Blues Club, Fat Matt's Rib Shack, The Northside Tavern, Darwin’s, The Moonshadow Tavern and Smith's Olde Bar. Funky Bluester has also taken the stage at the famous 40 Watt Club in Athens, the Wayfarer Music Hall in Monroe, and numerous local festivals and establishments in Atlanta and the southeast.

Funky Bluester has performed as a featured act at the Sounds of Summer Downtown Concert Series in Monroe, GA, the Autumn Heritage Festival in Loganville, GA and several times as a featured headlining act at the Columbia County Blues, Brews, and BBQ festival in Augusta, GA. Funky Bluester has also had the honor of being the featured act for several Atlanta Blues Society events.

Funky Bluester is comprised of experienced, mature musicians who have a genuine desire to provide the highest level of musicianship at every engagement.

Funky Bluester is a member of the Atlanta Blues Society and is based out of Monroe, GA.
