RNB - (SHORT FOR RED NECK BLUES) - is an ongoing jam with Jeff on his acoustic guitar and his old friend Tony D. on harmonica, playing old country and acoustic blues. "Neither one of us is a red neck per say - not saying we don't have red neck tendencies at times - we just thought it really described what we do."
Jeff and Tony landed in Albany county jail back in 2009, hours after their 1st gig. They were both incarcerated for B&E (that's Bad Entertaining). It happened after a night of trying to perform while knocking off a bottle of tequila and smoking a bag of homegrown. Well, story has it that they made a promise that night never to drink or smoke before or during a gig again. Over the years they became great friends and have been playing together ever since. They combine old blues, ragtime blues, old country and bluegrass folk....and they almost always try to keep their promise....
RNB just released their 1st CD, Live in Springfield, so swing by the Red Lion Inn and pick one up, or send an e-mail, they 'll send you one!
