So, you might look at these pictures and think these guys are too young to play the blues. Why should I come see them? Because they are really good and they are the players who will be performing the Blues for years to come. Each of these young players is passionate about the music, has been playing for many years and has been performing at concerts and festivals for several years. You can check out their music on their myspace sites. You will be impressed!

TJ Moore I've been playing guitar since age 8 and performing since I was 10. I originally played rockabilly and for the past 3 years I've been exploring and loving the blues! I play the Delta blues. I moved to Oregon from Nebraska last year. In Omaha I was a member of the Omaha Blues Society and played with and did workshops in the BluesEd program. I am now a member of the Cascade Blues Association. I've played for the Children's Miracle Network, company picnics, schools, the opening of the Holland Performing Arts Center (Omaha), on tv, opened every month for the 'Playing With Fire' concert series in 2005, arts festivals, many bars, and the Waterfront Blues Festival. I've been on HBO for my music and in the Wall Street Journal for my passion of music from 2 and 3 generations ago. This year I played at Vancouver's MicroBlues Festival with Kinzel & Hyde and the Waterfront Blues Festival. Local musicians I have played with include Robbie Laws, Kinzel & Hyde, Ben Rice and the Youth of Blues and the Danny Hay Davis Band, Kenny Blue Ray and Tony Coleman. I'm just getting my feet wet in the Portland area and am lucky to have some great connections. I have recently been awarded a full scholarship to the Port Townsend Country Blues Workshop and have been invited to Clarksdale, Mississippi for Pinetop Perkins' homecoming. One of the best music I've had was getting to meet privately with blues greats Pinetop Perkins and Hubert Sumlin. I've also sat to talk with Pete Best (the original drummer for The Beatles) before his show. My hobbies are researching vintage guitars & amps. Ask me ANYTHING!

Gunnar Roads Gunnar Roads (aka: Alexander Gunnar Rolfs) was born August 18, 1994 in West Palm Beach, Florida and moved to Vancouver, WA a year later. Soon after laying his fingers on his first guitar at the ripe old age of 9, it became clearly evident that Gunnar was born with immense natural ability. The Gunnar Roads Band is the culmination of Gunnar’s passion to be the best he can be, and the good fortune of making friends with some outstanding like minded musicians along the way. Gunnar Roads and The Gunnar Roads Band is making quite a name for themselves in the great NW as they continue to entertain audiences whenever possible. They have all played together and individually at a variety of venues throughout the Northwest. Often Gunnar Roads and the Band get the opportunity to accompany or open up for other well known regional and national talents, like: Norman Sylvester, Geoffrey Castle, Robbie Laws, Ben Rice, Gary Meziere, Robert Carson, Gary Fontaine, Ward Stroud, Danny Hay Davis, Randy Oxford, Sista Monica, and many others. The Gunnar Roads Band has been included on the schedules of many of the region's Blues Festivals.

Jumpin Josh Jumpin Josh is a true bluesman (at the age of 10) with talent and natural ability beyond his years. He has had the privilege of taking guitar lessons from Nicole Fournier, an award winning guitarist, singer and songwriter. To see his progress in the last year only makes you wonder what lies ahead for this true blues spirit. He has been fortunate enough to play with greats such as Nicole Fournier, Randy Oxford, Billy Stoops, Ian Crawford, Ms. Peaches, Rod Cook, and Malcolm Clark, Nick Nicholas, Chester Dennis Jones, as well as many other local talents. His venues range from blues festivals such as Waterfront Blues Festival, Rock Cut, Mt. Baker, and Suncadia, to the Spar Tavern, Johnny's Doc, and the Rhapsody in Bloom coffee house. His first stage experience was at Jazzbones in Tacoma where he now appears regularly at Randy Oxford's Wed. Night Blues Theater, an all ages jam.
