Although we perform some Blues cover songs, many of our Blues songs are originals written by Squier Red. Singers and musicians at intermediate levels or better and who are over 18 years of age are welcome to join. The primary focus of this group will actually be singing and playing blues music at group jam sessions. We will also enjoy meetups at coffee shops and group concerts with other blues lovers!!!!
