“What a great night of fun and music with the BIG BOSS BLUES debute at the Blues Barn. This band stands apart from many of the other blues bands in the area. Seasoned musician, song and arrangement writer and booking agent extraordinaire William LaValley really shines. His originals are recognizable variations on the many blues styles out there and VERY tasty. I especially like the New Orleans style of the bunch. Charles Schantz takes turns with Joe Ferguson fronting the band with Joe on vocals and wailing harp and Charlie on vocals and killer guitar. Eric Bush, the percussionist was amazing with his contributions to the new originals. He really nails it!”
