We are a quartet with female and backing vocals. We play a variety of jazz standards, R & B tunes, and some rock material as well. We play songs that people love such as an old classic, "more today than yesterday", fly me to the moon and other well-known songs. Our unique sound is based around the Hammond organ.
Skip Werke & BC have been best friends and musical partners for decades and started to play the blues as teenagers after Skip experienced a performance by country blues greats Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee. While Skip got absorbed in the roots of blues, BC was heavily influenced by British band covers of blues classics. The resulting influences are a fast-paced acoustic style of country blues that breaks out in performances of both original music and a variety of cover tunes in their repertoire.
