John Paul Drum is currently traveling with a style that he has refined and redefined over the past thirtyfive years. Playing inside the Kansas City blues community for over thirty years and “Hangin’” with Kansas City’s world class jazz musicians has produced a powerful force in his music and technique. Dizzying runs and monster chords provide texture and depth to the emotional swirling blues that ebb and flow from his instrument. His vocals are passionate, wry, gruff, sweet and growing. He has captured the Best Blues Band crown in Kansas City three times, but prefers to travel and perform in the cities outside his home turf. A brief tour of Europe (Barcelona, Spain; Paris and Nantes, France; Brussels and Gembloux, Belgium; Frankfurt and Hofheim, Germany) has assured his love of taking his music further afield.

Hard Electric or Sunny Acoustic blues make for rousing, entertaining and eclectic time well spent.

Patrick Recob - Hailing from Topeka and the Kansas Flint Hills and still proud resident of Kansas calling the Metro Kansas City area home Patrick Recob has spent the past thirty years honing his craft as a touring bassist beginning as an alumni of the Gary Primich Band in the 1990s, Lee McBee & The Confessors in the 2000s, and onward as a road sideman with a stellar list of who’s who of traditional Blues national act artists such as James Harman, RJ Mischo, Smokin’ Joe Kubek & Bnois King just to name a select few. Sharing the stage with many well known blues artists on high profile events around the United States, he has also toured Europe with The Gary Primich Band in 1995 and Mike Morgan & The Crawl featuring Lee McBee in 2007. Recob remains active touring as a sideman and is an especially strong fixture on the Midwest scene. Since Lee McBee’s passing he has fronted the Confessors since 2014 as the Sunday Night house band at BB’s Lawnside BBQ in Kansas City when not on the road; a residency the band has had for 20 years.

Howard Mahan - The band you know and love from all over Kansas. Playing the best of Classic Rock & Blues! Along with originals and funky jam sessions to keep you on you wanting more! Howard- Lawrence, KS Landon- Mahaska, KS Tim- Salina, KS
