Gordon James Blues Band – Shenango Valley, PA
The Gordon James Blues Band (GJBB) is a five-piece, hard driving, blues band that began in 2004 by singer Joe “Mojo Filter” biro and guitarist Pete “Jim” Jorewicz. The rhythm section is tough to beat with Rick Hill on guitar, Gary Minoff on bass, rounded out with P.J. Nespor on drums.
The band plays roundhouse style blues – just a bit edgy – applying equal amounts of emotion and explosion, paying homage to their all time influences: Walter Trout, Jimmy Hall, Slo’ Leak, and Delbert McClinton. They bring a fresh yet savvy sound to their performance.
The Gordon James Blues Band recently participated in the Blues Society of Western PA’s 11th Annual Blues Challenge in 2015.
BandMembers: Jim Jorewicz (guitar); Joe Biro (harmonica and vocals); Rick Hill (guitar); P.J. Nespor (drums); Gary Minoff (bass)
