Q: Curosity about Rusty Estes and the Junctionaires...love the style there.. Care to share about it...thanks

A: I met Rusty (James) Estes in the late 70’s he was introduced to me by Bad Bob, aka Bobby Walker. We played a few gigs, he was a little older, knew all the songs, at the time he was working on his BA in music at Mesa College. In 1980, we formed the group “Alias” a rock-n-roll band with Malcolm Mitchell and Bruce Safken. We played to local clubs mostly The Flamingo and the R&R. Rusty and I became life long friends, collaborating on many musical projects, we formed the Junctionaires, and I played several gigs in his band Jazz City. We recorded a lot and I hope to be posting more songs I have featuring Rusty on vocals and guitar. He was one-of-a-kind on the guitar, a monster player, a unique style of his own, he could play Jazz, Rock and Country. We worked together for 30 years and continued doing gigs together to just before he passed. He most always kept a positive attitude and showed gratitude to everyone he associated with. The stories we could tell, he was a cool dude.
