The band consists of guitarists Franck Goldwasser (Paris Slim), Chris Carlson, Vyasa Dodson, with Reinhardt Melz. Louis Pain. Stevie Kerin, Jim Wallace, John Mazzocco, Chris Mercer, Joe McCarthy, and Bradley Ulrich. “What makes this project exciting to us and hopefully attractive to the public is the ability of these musicians to play his music with the same grits, groove and gravy that he brought to the stage. We are trying to play these songs with the cultural integrity that Portland demands from their bands.” said John Mazzocco. “We believe that the fans of T-Bone deserve a full evening and frankly we need that long to cover his deep book of songs. Bringing Franck, Chris and Vyasa together again is a treat for all fans out there. Add a great rhythm section featuring Reinhardt Melz, Louis Pain, Stevie Kerin and the horn section and you have the all-stars necessary to make his music come alive.” One show only!
