Each of the musicians in this group have spent years playing blues, soul, jazz and rock music around the country. The band members have known each other forever and talked off-and-on about how much fun it would be working together - some day. Finally, the time was right and The Stevee Wellons Band (SWB) came to life.
Working together has led the group in some unexpected directions. The Blues Society of Western Pennsylvania gave SWB the honor of representing the region for the 2016 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. That experience provided encouragement and inspiration for the group to work on creating their own mix of blues and soul music. The band is taking their music out on the club and concert circuit in Pennsylvania, and working toward their first full-length CD.
