Lucas Biespiel was fifteen when he played his first show at a small club in Portland named the Satyricon, a venue that is well known for being the meeting place of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love. A talented violinist and singer, he became the front man for the Portland-based Backyard Blues Boys in 2009, before joining the band in late 2010. Biespiel has played at a multitude of musical joints across the West Coast as a member of the BBBs, including performances at the Waterfront Blues Festival (hailed as the second largest blues festival in the country). In a review of the BBBs album, “Tradin’ Twelves,” released in 2011, CBA President Greg Johnson called his songwriting, “down-right amazing.”
After relocating to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music, Biespiel began writing a new wave of songs. He put together a band to bring those songs to life, and Lucas Biespiel and His Dangerous Gentlemen are currently working on their debut EP, "Stories of your Sorrows" due in September of 2012.
