Linwood Taylor, James Mabry & Steve Wolf

James M pic1Linwood Lee Taylor is tuned in to 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.

James Mabry, who has performed with R&B and Top 40 artists is a dynamic Blues guitarist influenced by Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix, Elmore James, Albert King, Jimmy Reed, Louis Jordan, B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Ray Charles, Big Joe Turner, and many others. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, his guitar and vocal talents were a part of the Daryl Band the Cathy Ponton King Band. Through this time he also led and recorded with his own band, The James Mabry Blues Band.
