Jay B. Elston

Lead Vocals, Slide & Lead Guitar, Blues Harp
Jay B. has been a musician for thirty years, from smoke filled barrooms to full sold out concerts in front of thousands of fans. He has played music on stage with everyone from Molly Hatchet and Willie Nelson to James Cotton (Muddy Water's blues harp player) to Tab Benoit and Raful Neal. He is a road veteran with a wide variety of musical tastes. By applying what he has learned to his deep rooted love for the blues, he has developed a unique writing and performing style. Before embarking on a solo career, Jay's bands included New Orleans favorite J.J. Muggler and Blues Fury, where he's written 90% of the music, and appeared on television and radio many times. He's also appeared on the main stage at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, sharing the stage with such artists as Bruce Hornsby and Delbert McClinton. Jay has done three CD's with J.J. Muggler and one with Blues Fury. Whether live or in the studio, whether his guitar is screaming or crying, Jay has proved to be one of the best guitar slingers that you can hear.

Here are some highlights
of articles written by some
newpapers and magazines;

"...no one will walk away disatisfied.
He never plays any less than his best,
whether he's jamming with Tab Benoit
performing a solo slide breakout,
or singing an old Robert Johnson tune."
-Beth Sager-
The Times Picayunne

"ZZ Top taking a time machine back
to play Duanne Allman licks with Robert Johnson..."
-Ann Gilbert-
The News Banner

"Savory album that rollicks along with
freshness and vitality."
-Keith Spera-
The Lagniappe

"The hell-rasin', Harley-driven feeling
generated throughout their work touches the
working man's soul and is a testament
to both the band's road-tested audience appeal
and their earthy yet polished songwritting skills."
-Roger Kennedy-
Music Beat - Northshore Magazine

"...sonds if they were reared and raised in a
roadhouse and makes one hell of a joyous noise..."
-Scott Jordon-
Offbeat Magazine

"...not just another blues band. With a tight rhythm
section on the bottom and lead work, slide guitar
and outstanding vocals on top, no hopes
are too high for these guy."
