Bryan Lee and the Blues Power Band

Lauded as one of the finest blues guitarists performing today by none other than Eric Clapton and encouraged in his youth by the legendary Muddy Waters, Bryan Lee holds high the mantle of the blues as a creative and artistic empowering force for good times and decent living. Lee lost his eyesight at age 8, then found the blues at 13 and never looked back. Born in Wisconsin, he traveled around a while then staked his claim to fame with a 15-year stint as the leader of the Jump Street House Five, house band at the Old Absinthe Bar in New Orleans during the 80s and 90s. Known as the Braille Blues Daddy, he now spends most of his time on the road with Blues Power Band mates John Perkins (drums), Brent Johnson (guitar) and Bill Blok (bass) taking the blues to the faithful one show at a time.
