Linwood Taylor is tuned into Howlin’ Wolf, Jimi Hendrix, and Muddy Waters, as well as Freddy King, Albert King, and Albert Collins, just to name a few. In fact, Taylor often played with Collins on the East Coast and treats fans to “Frosty”, a Collins tune he played with its creator. Not many Blues artists can say they’ve recorded with H.R. of the Bad Brains as well as performed with Albert Collins, but Taylor can. Linwood recently toured the world with blues artist Joe Lewis Walker.
An infectious, rhythmic, gritty, and soulful feeling sparked a fire in Clarence “The Blues Man” Turner while listening to his father’s collection of LPs, which included the incomparable Muddy Waters and the legendary Howlin’ Wolf, and at the age of eight Clarence began a life long love affair with the blues. He realized that what he felt in his gut and soul could only be expressed through his first love—his guitar. He started his explosive blues band, which propelled him to become one of the greatest blues men of this century.
Bassist Steve Wolf has been a fixture on the Washington music scene since the late 60s. He has performed throughout the United States and Europe with such DC area notables as Danny Gatton, Tom Prinicipato, The Nighthawks, Cathy Ponton King, Catfish Hodge, Deanna Bogart, Bob Margolin, Linwood Taylor, Big Joe Maher, and a diverse group of national artists ranging from Chuck Berry, The Coasters and Bo Diddly to Doctor John, Brian Auger and Springsteen sax man Clarence Clemons. His well respected work in the blues arena had led him to back Chicago blues legends Sunnyland Slim, Pine Top Perkins, Charlie Musselwhite, Guitar Junior (Luther Johnson), and many others. The Goldmine Magazine (The Music Collector’s Magazine) called Steve Wolf “one of the finest bass players on the East Coast.”
