Genres: Blues

Description

Son Jack Jr & Michael Wilde are an award winning traditional blues duo based out of Seattle, WA.    Neither are strangers to the music industry, counting 30+ years of touring and recording experience between them, both in the US and Europe.  They released their first joint album (“Walk The Talk”) in September 2010 and have received widespread and regular national airplay peaking at #2 Picks To Click on XM/Sirius Radio and hit #49 on the National Roots Music blues).

The duo’s spirited and energetic acoustic performances are what set them apart, and live shows have been described as “intoxicating, intense, exciting experiences”.  “We play blues in the way we believe it was intended to sound back in the day, meaning rough and ready dance music, if you know what I mean”. Theirrepertoire consists of predominantly original material but also pays respect to a carefully chosen set of covers by the likes of Charley Patton, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Big Bill Broonzy, RL Burnside  and Tommy Johnson among others.  “The songs we choose to cover are those that personally connect with us.  When you come to a show you’re guaranteed a good time.  However, we’re not your typical weekend party band, so if you’re looking for “Mustang Sally” we’re probably not gonna make your night”. However, this approach seems to work as evidenced by the reaction of many at their live shows where dancing is common, and many would say, unavoidable.
