The concert on Thursday, August 8, 2013 at 7:00pm features an evening of classic Blues with the acclaimed Bob Lanza Blues Band in concert.
Bob Lanza was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame on March, 26, 2012. In 2011 the band represented The New York Blues Society in Memphis, TN at the International Blues Challenge. The Bob Lanza Blues Band is a tight knit, blues unit, in true Chicago & Kansas City style. With some Texas influences and a north New Jersey environment to grow up in, Lanza has become known as one of the nastiest blues guitarist on the scene. If you see this band live, you'll come away exhausted, if not from dancing, just the sheer power and emotion of the band's performance.
Lanza has been around and has played with a lot of local blues bands, and few of the greats. He was bandleader for Floyd Phillips and The Mudflaps for 4 years in the late 90's into late 2001 when Floyd passed away. Floyd was out of Houston, TX and was schooled by TBone Walker and Johnny "Clyde" Copeland, OV Wright and so many more. Lanza has also backed "Superharp" James Cotton on several occasions. He plays with emotion and soul.
Sandy Joren on bass is from Leary, Georgia where he grew up in a band with his momma and daddy. Doing the Legion circuit in the deep south, when Sandy was old enough he struck out on his own with his band "Crystal". Playing all over Florida during the Disco era, Crystal played to the masses with funk and disco!!!! Sandy came north and hooked up with" Norris and the Country Treats" and went to Nashville where they were voted best new talent by the songwriters association. Sandy then played with The Delivery Boys for a long stretch. In 1991 he met Bob when he filled in on bass. He has been there ever since.
The acclaimed Dave "Snakeman" Runyan is on harmonica. Schooled by the master James Cotton, Snakeman brings charisma and energy to every performance. The perfect fit to Bobs' guitar playing, they play off of one another as if they were doing it for a long time. "Snakeman" has played with the band Hotsauce and The Michael Packer Blues Band plus a host of others. The Plainfield, NJ native adds just the right amount of "grease" to the recipe, that makes up the sound of the band.
Bob Lanza says "We do use a drummer, but there have been so many different ones, it would be like the Gettysburg address if I started to list them".
