Tony Gerber and the Cotton Blossom Band / Bio

Tony Gerber steps into more of his mountain gospel blues roots with this project, the Cotton Blossom Band. Started in the fall of 2011, Gerber asked long time friend and guitar player, Mason Stevens to come by his studio to start rehearsing a few songs to do on the Mando Blues radio show in Nashville, Tennessee. After hearing their new mix of music, Mike Doster (BB King's Bass player for 17 years) "liked" Gerber's music entries on Facebook. Doster and Gerber met in the late eighties via bluesman, Aashid Himons and ended up performing several live shows as band behind Aashid. They had also caught up a bit recently at Aashid's memorial service in 2011. So Gerber asked if Doster would like to join him and Stevens with this kind of Mississippi Delta Space Blues concept, and he said sure thing and came to rehearsal's with acoustic upright bass in hand. The project had a very successful radio broadcast and they are back in music creation/rehearsal mode to broaden their palette, so to speak. After the first couple gigs, Gerber called on his friend, 5 time grammy winner, Roy "Futureman" Wooten to bring his mastery of percussion to the group and now we currently have a blue quartet. Enjoy the unique blend and sound of the Cotton Blossom Band...
