Established as one of the finest pure blues bands in central Illinois, Bluesmattic built a reputation by persevering through fine playing and good performing. The rocking blues trio of Robert Beam (guitar), Greg Campbell (bass) and Scott Henrikson (drums) began as a unit in 2006 combining decades of previous experience from different areas. Beam came from Atlanta, Ga., after 30 years of professional touring and studio work. Campbell cut his teeth playing on the four-string and spent the last several years working in local blues groups. Henrickson, once a front man singer, came back to the drums and now adds harmony singing to the group. The band interchanges standards with originals, keeping the music hopping and simultaneously interesting. For the special Halloween performance comedian Diane Corder from BET Comedy entertains as emcee for the costume contest and after Bluesmattic plays, DJ Candy Man brings on the jams until 3am.
