The Story

The Night Stalkers is the dream band I have always wanted to put together. Things were stalled during the pandemic, but in late 2021 Colorado Blues Society decided to resume having a Blues Challenge and I knew that this was my opportunity to do something new. After many calls, dropouts, regroupings and almost giving up, I finally had my band. I love a Blues band with a horn section and so I was determined to make it work. We only had a few songs to start with, but we've been writing new tunes like mad and now it feels like we're ready. In May 2022 we went to The International Blues Challenge in Memphis and made it to the semi-finals . That led to us being the opening act of the Trinidaddio Blues Festival in 2022. We killed it! It's just getting better all the time and with the addition of Jim DeSchamp on guitar there is no telling how far we could go. We have just won the CBS Blues Challenge for the second year in a row and will be headed back to Memphis for the 2023 IBC. This time we want to make it all the way to the Orpheum!
