September 7th: The Ted Vaughn Blues Band
Texas bluesman Ted Vaughn, currently based in Oregon, fronts this group of award-winning blues pros – Soul Fixn’ Blues, with decades of recording and performing under their belts. The band’s raucous, high energy live performances have gained legions of fans worldwide, electrifying blues lovers at some of the largest festivals in the country as well as smaller, more intimate venues.
Ted was born and raised in Texas and was heavily influenced by the blues sounds of “Lightnin’ Hopkins”, “Howlin’ Wolf”, his namesake, Stevie Ray Vaughan as well as country artists such as Waylon Jennings. Ted formed a friendship with the late Texas bluesman Willie Willis (The Wildcatters) and studied technique on the harmonica from such notable players as Charlie Musselwhite, Sam Meyers (Anson Funderburg and the Rockets) and James Harman.
Due to the popularity of their original music, the band was listed as one of the “Top Ten” bands for worldwide airplay on Jango internet radio. The group’s latest CD, “It Takes A Man to Play the Blues” was named “Album of the Week” in Sweden and has garnered new fans all over Europe.
“The playing is tight, the sound is sharp . . . a blues persona all their own. Electrifying harmonica work.”
-Mike DeGagne – All Music Guide
“Yes for unpretentious blues. A thousand times, yes ! The Ted Vaughn Blues Band is the genuine thing. Go to this show.”
