About This Event

In January of 2012, in a small bedroom community in Southern California, The B Players Rock & Roll and Rhythm & Blues Club was formed to entertain audiences of all creeds and colors with great music and strong performances. With an evolving and eclectic mix of songs in the repertoire, The B Players express their uniqueness in their song selections and in the instruments they use to make noise; from stand-up cocktail drum kits, to upright, rockabilly basses and homemade 'canjo' (a banjo made from a cookie tin) guitars, the songs are always changing and the sets are always fun. The B Players have established themselves as a "leave the ego at the door" band, and while there are hefty doses of traditional rock and blues themes in what they do, they always keep the content age-appropriate. And these boys can play with great grooves and intense musicality. A full range of sonic toe-tapping ensures that the dance floor is rarely empty when downbeat comes. The first recording sessions with the group were conceived of as experiments in old-time recording techniques. The band recorded live with no instrument overdubs and vintage microphones and miking techniques. This led to a unique quality of raw sound with an honest feel. The second round of sessions saw the band exploring unique instrumentation and a more production-oriented mindset. Combining these two sets of recordings has led to an (as-yet untitled) album with varying texture and anything but a formulaic 'blues' sound.
