ABOUT US

We are the West Coast Blues Doctors. Our medicine is the blues.
From the down home country blues of Robert Johnson to the sounds of BB King, from the urban blues of Muddy Waters to the uptown sound of James Brown, the West Coast Blues Doctors are both enlightening and moving, a feast for the eyes as well as the ears.
A West Coast Blues Doctors performance is designed to invigorate you with soul and rhythm that has the effect of a Medicine Show tonic. Whether it’s the Swing of the thirties, the post-war Chicago Shuffle or Rhythm and Blues of the sixties, the music will bring you out of your seat and onto the dance floor.
We are veteran musicians of Uncle Wiggly’s Hot Shoes Blues Band, Out Of The Blue and Soul Station, with the credentials to diagnose a crowd. Let the West Coast Blues Doctors prescribe for you a musical practicum that will provide the best medicine your ears have had in years.

Depending on the venue we may be from a two-piece to a four piece.
