    The NUMBER ONE Blues Band in New York City (per ReverbNation.com, Oct/Nov 2013) The Halley DeVestern Band sounds something like Janis Joplin backed by Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Mothers of Invention with just a hint of howitzer. Halley was born in Manhattan and moved around the US before settling back in New York City, where she and the band call home. Halley’s voice is huge - somewhere between Janis Joplin and Aretha Franklin. She earned a BFA in acting at Boston University, and that pedigree shows in the her performances. In fact, Halley fronted Janis Joplin’s legendary band, Big Brother and the Holding Company, on a recent US tour and brought down the house every night. Well-seasoned road gods, the band members have earned their chops with the likes of Roger Waters, Shawn Mullins, Muddy Waters, Taj Mahal, Gatemouth Brown, Zen Tricksters, and Mickey Dolenz. Halley and the band have shared the stage with Gov’t Mule, Bonnie Bramlett, Jimmie Vaughan, Son Seals, Johnny Winter, Donna the Buffalo, John Hammond and Antigone Rising.

    We're proud to be featured as a Sunday Original. Wind down the weekend with us...enjoy a glass or two of fine wine made from locally-grown grapes...Studio does all the processing fermenting and bottling on site! Dig our bluesy funkyness in an intimate setting with Studio Winery's state of the art sound system. Listen to WBSD 89.1 for a behind the music interview & album cuts!! In Vino Veritas! - See more at: http://halleydevestern.com/calendar/#sthash.FJgu7Ofz.dpuf" "With Halley on lead vocals and musicians Tom Heinig; bass, David Patterson; guitar and Rich Kulsar; drums...together they have become a very tight and formidable musical combo. The band is based in the tough and muscular [New York City] area and their music displays a very similar attitude, force and feeling. The most striking aspect is Halley’s formidable vocal talent; which contains a delectable and enticingly fruity huskiness which has in turn, inflections of Tina Turner, Maggie Bell, and of course Janis Joplin."
