Boise Blues Society Review 

We were so excited last night to get to witness the world premiere performance of our BBS Board member Billy Arnold's new band, Billy Blues Band!!

 
Many of you know these musicians and will remember Becky Blake from when she showed up at a jam session at The Drink a while back and just blew everyone away with her awesome, passionate performances. Michele Eastland is also well known to us for the same reasons, incredible voice, passionate delivery. Put those two together with a great group of musicians like this and you're gonna have an amazing sound.. one our sold-out crowd at the Sapphire was certainly thrilled to hear and has been asking "where are you playing next?" 


Stay tuned, we're pretty sure we'll be seeing this group again soon and we'll have more video for you soon as well.

 
Look for the band's page here and on Facebook and let 'em know how much you enjoy their music.  by Ron Gardner
