The John Sosebee Band is a one-of-a-kind, original, Hill Country/Juke Joint style Blues-Rock band that never fails to provide up-tempo, powerful, low-down-'n'-dirty beats all night long. No matter where they are playing (in a bar for locals or on a stage for thousands) these boys always get the crowd up and out of their seats and onto the dance floor. Delivering sensational slide guitar work, soulful vocals, and highly-energetic beats they defy the norm in an innovative and unprecedented way that always has the audience wanting more and more.
The sound is often compared to R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, The Black Keys, The North Mississippi Allstars, and John Spencer's Blues Explosion, although they feature one of the most unique setups you'll ever see or hear from any band. With the two piece setup, Sosebee handles kick drum, foot-snare and high-hat duties, along with his unique vocals, and amazing guitar, while the bassist, Bobcat Worsham fills out the bottom and top with strong bass riffs and their exclusive foot cymbals. When the trio is in effect, Kai Rich takes care of the drum kit, delivering strong, hypnotic beats all night long.
Able to get even the largest crowds on their feet and havin' the time of their lives, and with experience at some of the South's largest Blues festivals and clubs, The John Sosebee Band NEVER disappoints with their incredible performances. Sosebee has opened for or played with famous performers such as: Col. Bruce Hampton, Delbert McClinton, Cedric Burnside and Lightin' Malcom, and have performed at some of the Southeast's top festivals and venues.
