What they're saying ...
"Great job guys. You all sounded great."
- Bill Wax, XM Radio.


"Back in 1967, Bret Littlehales (AKA Big Boy Little) was THE harmonica man! He not only played like a demon, but knew more about blues music than anybody else. He was a major influence on shaping the Washington blues scene back then & he's still playing the real 100%, low down & dirty blues to this day." - Bobby Radcliff


"These guys play blues for grown-ups." - Bill Kirchen


"Bret and I were rivals in 1967 for top dog local harp guys. I did Bret the favor of leaving town and he and Bobby Radcliff formed the Northside Blues Band, the prototype DC whiteboy blues band. I returned to DC in 1972 and started the Nighthawks. Now Bret's back. I guess I better tighten up." - Mark Wenner of The Nighthawks


"This guy's a real blues player." - Huey Lewis of The News

Matt Kelley, "a stunning young guitarist-singer" - Washington Post



********************************************************************************


Hot Rods & Old Gas
Hot Rods: Hotshot guitarists Tom Maxwell, Andy Poxon & Zach Sweeney, with Mikey O'Donnell on drums,
Old Gas: "Wolf" Crescenze on bass
and "Hot Roddess" Lisa Lim on guitar/slide - our newest member!!
FOUR lead guitars with THREE lead singers!


If you haven't seen these young hotshot guitarists yet, you're in for a treat! Playin' high-energy rockin' blues with some roots rock, rockabilly and country thrown in the mix too!


"The combination is particularly potent ..." - Washington Post.

About "The Forkman's" Benefit at Fish Head Cantina with 15+ bands & a packed audience ...
"But the act that got the most enthusiastic response was Hot Rods and Old Gas. Tom Maxwell, Andy Paxon, and Zach Sweeney on the guitar trifecta damn near stole the show." - Steve Keirn.

"This band will put a smile on your face that will last all night." - Steve Keirn, Blues Nation Forum, www.mojoworkin.com.

"Lisa Lim is dangerous with that slide guitar .... She is for real ...." - Sue Foley, Antone's Records.

"Lisa Lim is an excellent blues guitarist ... quite talented"
- Gaye Adegbalola, Uppity Blues Women, Alligator Records.

"Where has this fine lady been hiding? ... Lisa Lim should be gigging every night of the week! She is a player to keep an eye on ... she is up and coming on the blues scene ...."
- Tom Principato, Powerhouse Records.

Lisa Lim, "....musician extraordinaire ... a very big deal ...." - Zack Zorn, The Free Lance-Star (Fredericksburg, VA).

"Lisa is a musician who is headed to the top not only because of her great guitar work, but because of her dedication to being the best she can be. I have had the pleasure of watching her jam with the great Ana Popovic. And feel confident that she has the ability and the drive to make an impact on today's music scene. Give Lisa a listen and catch her live when she comes to your area!" - The Virginiabluesman, www.live365.com

Zach Sweeney, "young guitar phenom ... A+ student of the blues-rock school of Eric Clapton, Danny Gatton and Jimmy Page" - Washington Post.

"You'll be amazed at Zach Sweeney pickin' on guitar for all the world like Danny Gatton" - Steve Keirn

"Tom is a young guitarist/singer ... with a mature Jimmy Vaughn-like approach to the guitar. And his slide work is sweetly exquisite, reminiscent of Duane Allman." - Steve Keirn, Blues Nation Forum, www.mojoworkin.com.

"The combination is particularly potent in the figure of Poxon, whose big, mature voice is even more surprising coming from a gangly teenager with a wild head of red hair." - Washington Post

"Andy is a 15 year old singer / guitar player of enormous ability. A big mature voice emanates from a pale blue eyed boy with a huge red head afro - you can't believe how strong that voice is. And he is an absolute wiz on guitar. The combination of the vocals and guitar is as good as it gets." - Steve Keirn

Other Local Open Blues Jams . . .

Blues Jam Format: the host band usually plays first - for about an hour and then the jammers get up; sometimes host band closes out the night. Great way to hear local blues talent and you never know who's going to show up: sometimes out-of-towners and touring musicians. Of course it's also a great way to connect with other blues-lovers and musicians, and the audience is appreciative! Support your local blues jam and establishments that host the jams too; come hungry & thirsty to ensure the jams keep going!



1st Sunday of the Month, 4-8 pm, DC Blues Society Blues Jam - location varies - check www.dcblues.org for location, free
