Jim Koeppel/Dust My Blues Band / Bio

Dust My Blues Band is a traditional blues band with a modern touch. It is a blues with Jim Koeppel on guitar and vocals, Keith Christopher on bass (Georgia Satellites, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Richie Havens, Dan Baird, Eric Ambel) and Sam Bryant (Kenny Wayne Shepherd) on drums. They play original songs, written by Jim and by other writers just for this band, as well as choice gems from the past. Dust My Blues Band swings, rocks and grooves so you can get your boogie anyway you like it.

Jim's last CD, Lovesick James, was produced by renowned producer and guitarist Eric "Roscoe" Ambel (Robert Randolph, Dana Fuchs, Del-Lords, Yayhoos, Steve Earle & the Dukes, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Keri Noble, Casey Neil, Syd Straw, Mojo Nixon, etc). Roscoe also played guitar on it, and the rhythm section consists of bassist Keith Christopher (Georgia Satellites), keyboardist Rob Arthur (touring with Peter Frampton) and NY journeyman drummer Phil Cimino.

A music veteran and founder of various roots, blues and country blues combos (including Who Slapped John?, Shuck & Jive, Dust My Blues band), Jim has led bands in the New York area since the late 1980s until now, opening for Taj Mahal, Doc Watson and David Bromberg, The Tailgators, Little Charlie and the Nightcats, among others. He has performed throughout the USA with various bands. He played with Doc Watson, and sang with Les Paul at Fat Tuesday's in NYC. He released his first solo record, Johnny's in the Doghouse, in late 1998. Jim's songs have appeared in the work of award winning independent filmmaker David Liban, and he scored the award winning and Emmy nominated documentary Carhenge which was featured on the Documentary Channel, and the award winning documentary Mortal ​Lessons.

He is currently working on an all blues CD which will feature original songs by Jim and some surprise writer/artists. It will be released in the fall. For more info go to:
