Nominated for a Blues Music Award in the category "Best New Artist Debut" for their 2006 Blue Bella Records release, ''Put It In The Alley AND nominated for a Blues Music Award in the category "Best Contemporary Blues Album" for their 2007 release, 'Tear Chicago Down', the music of The Kilborn Alley Blues Band has impressed countless critics and fans worldwide. Andrew Duncanson, Chris Breen, Josh Stimmel, and Aaron 'A+' Wilson are a true band, together of personal volition and sheer joy. They are already hardened players and determined innovators with deep study of the music and with a real feel for the life. The Kilborn Alley Blues Band is not a super-group; they are a true band. It is their band, and their vision.
The music here is not guitar-hero, guitar-solo-driven music. In the tradition of the Chicago Blues band created by Muddy Waters, the emphasis in each song is on the ensemble. For The Kilborn Alley Blues Band, whose guitar work from Duncanson and Stimmel has always received critical praise, the point of the act is not the virtuoso solo. Duncanson and the band meld the parts into the whole to transmit that special blues experience.
NEVER a cover charge at Third Base.
