The Highway 61 Band was born on October 10, 2001 in Akron, Ohio, the creation of Bob Moughler, Harmonica player and Vocalist.
He decided to form a band that would focus on Chicago style Blues and West Coast Boogie Blues, the music that inspired him to pick up the Harmonica back in 1982 while living in Phoenix, Arizona.
He was Influenced and tutored by one of the best Harp players in the country and good friend, Hans Olson who still lives in Phoenix and tours occasionally. As time passed Bob became heavily influenced by the late great William Clarke, Kim Wilson and Rod Piazza, in an endless quest for "that tone".
Well that tone paid off when Rupert Oysler, president of Seydel Harmonica Company U.S.A. picked Bob to be an endorsee, a relationship he still enjoys today after three years and proud to be featured on Seydels website with fellow endorsees Charlie Musselwhite, Mark Hummel, James Cotton, Curtis Salgado, and Watermelon Slim. It's been a great ride so far and we have no intentions of stopping the train now!
The Highway 61 Band has worked with The Fabulous Thunderbirds, James Cotton, Rod Piazza & The Mighty Flyers, James Harman, Reverend Raven & The Chain Smokin Alter Boys, Little Mike & The Tornadoes, Albert Castiglia, Mark Hummel, Rick Estrin & The Nightcats, and the late great Pat Ramsey & The Blues Disciples.
