Music is our passion, blues is our heart. We do what we love and love what we do
Our music is a reflection of ourselves and we feel that most people will enjoy what we have to offer. From soft acoustic to an electric sound, we love what we do and watching people enjoy what we have to offer. People have told us that we are a have very unique sounding. We are often asked "Who do we sound like?" We sound like Blue Rhoads.
I grew up with the Classic Rock. There wasn't much available for us then in the blues, but I always loved listen to it when ever I could. My biggest influences have been SRV, Hendrix, Clapton to mention a few. After really studying the blues I made the switch to all blues. I still enjoy the classic rock from time to time but the blues is where my heart lies. I really enjoy the opportunity to jam with other blues musicians when ever possible.
I grew up to the Motown sound and never gave much thought to the blues music. Tommy got me started and I love going back to the great sounds of long ago, Etta James wouldbe my favorite, but there are so many I love to listen to. We take on old tune and make it our's adding our flavor and some minor changes give our listeners a nice surprise. I love seeing the audience getting into what we are doing on stage. Gets me into it too and I love being able to put a smile on someones face.

It's been a long time since we have been able to get out and play some music, but we finally got out! Sunday May 30th, we joined some of our friends and made some new ones at Jay's in North Myrtle Beach. What a great time we had at the open Mic Jam hosted by our dear friend Teddy Webster, We were joined but three very talented musicans turning our Duo into a magnificent band, but just for a little while. Be sure to check out the video on our YouTube channel, BlueRhoads2019.
