The JT Wise Band performance at the Melody Ballroom for the Cascade Blues Association (CBA) was well attended with a great audience. Slim Lively, CBA President said it was an "exciting show". "People raved about it."
JT Wise's musical influences read like a Clapton Crossroads Festival including the full guitar spectrum from Clapton, to Billy Gibbons, to Vince Gill, Robben Ford, with a touch of Garcia and Betts thrown in as well.
The band has been known to stretch out a song in the tradition of the great jam bands taking the song whereever it may lead. They play a mix of americana, roots rock and blues that is popular with audiences today.
JT along with his bassist wife Margaret are the principle songwriters. They enjoy singing and harmonizing together.
James Stein plays rhythm and slide guitar with the band, he is a 30 year musicial partner of the Wise Family, a seasoned pro, and a steller vocalist.
On drums is Ken Woodside, who also plays in Shorty and the Mustangs.
