NORTH JERSEY BANDS
Blueberry Pie - Blueberry Pie is a hot little Rocking Blues Band created by Ruth Mesrobian and Doug Volpi. Ruthie met Dougie at an open mic. After playing together a few times, Ruthie told Dougie of her dream Idea, a Blues Band. Dougie took a look at her music book and found the music in her book and the artists to be identical to his. Dougie went into the kitchen, mixed up some Buddy Guy, added lots of Stevie Ray Vaughan, some Jimi Hendrix, Albert King, Robert Cray, Luther Allison, Ray Charles and Albert Collins. He called Ruthie into the kitchen, she put her heart into the mixture and Dougie added all of his soul. They baked it for a while and when it was done in December of 2004, they had, Blueberry Pie.
Brian Fitzpatrick - Brian Fitzpatrick is a singer/songwriter in the grand tradition. There is no attempt at reinventing the wheel here. The wheel doesn't need to be reinvented. Just great songs with a great band providing the juice.
Paul Vincent - I'm a singer/songwriter and home recordist with 15 years worth of material in varying states of readiness for the general public.
