Influences- BLUES & Jams. GSB BIO

Residing from what was once known as "The Gospel Swamp" and what is now known as Huntington Beach Ca, The Gospel Swamp Blues Band is a swirled blend of Roots Blues, rock, and psychedelic Jams that will leave you thinking you stepped back in time to the days when bands like Canned Heat, The Rolling Stones, The Grateful Dead, Big Brother and The Holding Co., The Allmond Brothers, and Jefferson Airplane would pay homage to the great bluesmen of our age. After noticing a lack of blues based bands within their own local Jam Band scene, the founding members of GSB decided to take jam fans back to their roots, and introduce them to the music their hero's listened to. Taking the music of greats such as Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Sunny Boy Williamson, The three kings (Freddy, Albert, & BB), Willie Dixon and Robert Johnson, to name a few, and adding their own swampy improvisational jams, and original tunes to the mix. As well as some old favorites by sixties icons such as previously mentioned. Creating a fresh new sound for both the The Blues scene, as well as the Jam scene, all the wile maintaining that blues root.
