The Paul Speidel Band 20th Anniversary Blues Show
with Special Guests Toni Lynn Washington & "Sax" Gordon
Guitarist Paul Speidel has been a prominent beacon in Boston's extensive blues/jazz music scene for more than two decades--in fact--2014 is The Paul Speidel Bandís 20th Anniversary Year . . . and thatís no small achievement. Guitarists come and go all the time in Boston--a city of major-league music schools--but Paul belongs to that small group of top players whoíve dug in their heels here and insist on keeping blues and jazz, in their various permutations, vital and probing for the long haul.
As a valued performer on stage with such blues luminaries as Duke Robillard, Toni Lynn Washington, David Maxwell, Michelle Wilson, Weepin' Willie, Howard Alden and many others, Paul has also performed with his own Paul Speidel Band--entertaining thousands--at the many well-known Boston area venues like Ryles Jazz Club, Johnny D's, Harper's Ferry, Tam O'Shanter, Plough and Stars, Bull Run, The Milky Way, Tommy Doyles, The Kinsale, The Regent Theatre, Precinct, Harper's Ferry, Willow Jazz Club, Kirkland Cafe, Midway Cafe, 1369 Jazz Club, Bob The Chef's, The Attic and many other historic clubs, coffeehouses, concerts and festivals throughout New England with side trips to Denver and Chicago. Paul's band has also opened for Gibson Signature Artist Johnny A, for John Lee Hooker, Jr. at the Nashoba Valley Blues-N-Brews Festival and for the great Luther "Guitar Junior" Johnson.
