The WIRED! BAND, 2010 winners of the Washington Blues Society's regional International Blues Challenge and semi-finalists at the 2011 International Blues Challenge held in Memphis TN, is a high-energy rockin' blues band that loves to play classic fifties style rock 'n' roll and the blues songs that inspired it.
Guitarist/Vocalist Kevin Sutton from St. Louis, Missouri, drummer Rick Jacobson, and bassist Keith Bakke, both from the Seattle Area, have a combined 50+ years of professional experience. It is obvious that they love what they do. Expect the unexpected! This band goes from a comfortable quiet whisper to in your face and loud and proud!
When I say high-energy I mean HIGH-ENERGY. The band isn't just a band, they put on a tireless show. WIRED! is there to provide entertainment and they take their job seriously. Careful! or the guitar player may just end up on your table. Watch out! or the drummer may be taking a solo, not just any drum solo, but up on the bar drum solos on your glass of beer.
This music swings and if you like to dance there is nothing better. Blues, rockabilly, and the rock 'n' roll music it helped create, are really about partying your blues away. The WIRED! Band plays a wide variety of grooves from the very beginnings of rock 'n' roll that are guaranteed to get you up off of your seat and dancing. From early Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly and Muddy Waters through the Stray Cats and Robert Gordon the groove keeps pumping and the energy never quits. Include in the mix a good dose of songs penned by the band and you've got a sure recipe for fun!
