Soulard Blues Band
After 25 years and many incarnations, the Soulard Blues Band - arguably the hardest working band in town - still tears up the town one show at a time.
It is not every band you run across that has a mission beyond just steady giggin', but then again, as one of the longest-lasting acts around - and with nine straight wins in the "Best Blues Band" category in a popular local poll - the Soulard Blues Band is not just any band.
As bassist and sole remaining founder Art Dwyer will tell you, "Our mission always is just to leave things around a little better than we found 'em." That ethic applies equally to song arrangements, the mood of the audience and the entire musical scene in this city that birthed such towering talents as Miles Davis, Johnny Johnson, Henry Townsend, Oliver Sain and many more.
