Sam Ghezzi, Italian singer and multi-instrumentalist, started a weird obsession for blues from the tender age of 5 years old, playing blues in venues and festivals around Europe almost with his pacifier in his mouth and still he has not enough of those damn 12 bars.

Jerome de Vijlder, the only indigenous and native of these lands, might look like a sexy cowboy but he lives the blues and lives for the blues everyday howling into his harmonica at nighttime: no need for full moon.
𝐕𝐢𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐏𝐢𝐧𝐨 𝐨𝐧 𝐠𝐮𝐢𝐭𝐚𝐫
Vincent Pino is the anchor of the band, originally Venezuelian now fully dutch, he’s the only real and respectable blues guitar player around probably thanks to the melancholic sounds of South American traditional music he was used to and the journey he made to come here.
𝐂𝐞𝐬𝐚𝐫 𝐏𝐮𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐞 𝐨𝐧 𝐝𝐨𝐮𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐛𝐚𝐬𝐬
Cesar Puente is the bass and the fundament of the band, laying down some of the finest bass frequencies with his elegant and long fingers, that are usually used to prepare some of the best Mexican tacos ever.
𝐉𝐨𝐞 𝐊𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐡 𝐨𝐧 𝐝𝐫𝐮𝐦𝐬
Joe Korach, from Tel Aviv, is the pulsive heart and soul of the band, a real loose gentleman with a real tight shuffle on his beautiful Rogers drum set from 1959 that shines like an explosion of confettis.
