Bio

Beale Street’s latest success story, BBMA 2015 Nominee for “Best Blues Band and 2014 International Blues Challenge Runner-up is Ghost Town Blues Band. Not your grandpa’s blues band, their live show has been captivating audiences in the U.S. and Canada with a second-line horn entrance, cigar box guitars and electric push brooms to Allman Brothers style jams and their hip-hop trombone player. Both Preston McEwen behind the drums and Matt Karner on the bass guitar are a punishing rhythm section behind multi-instrumntalist/frontman Matt Isbell with raunchy cigar box guitar licks and raspy "Dr. John-like, whiskey and gravel-soaked vocals." With the addition of Trombonist Suavo Jones and Jeremy Powell on keys, the grooves go from funky to "funk-nasty" as the band gains more notoriety in the blues festival and jam circuit.
