Boston Blues Show with Paul Speidel, featuring “Big” Jack Ward, “Rosy” Rosenblatt and Special Guests
21 & over
Guitarist, composer, educator and producer Paul Speidel has been a prominent beacon on Boston's extensive blues/jazz music scene for more than two decades--in fact--2014 was The Paul Speidel Band’s 20th Anniversary Year…and that’s no small achievement! Guitarists come and go all the time in Boston--a city of major-league music schools--but Paul belongs to that small group of top players who’ve dug in their heels here and insist on keeping blues and jazz, in their various permutations, vital and probing for the long haul.

Paul Speidel Band:
Hard-driving, high-energy shows and boundary-stretching recordings with a contemporary sound characterize Paul Speidel's appeal as one of the most relevant, creative voices on the music scene today. Boston-area DJ and Program Director Dana Marshall put it best: "Paul Speidel's guitar playing is impressive. He manages to mix Blues and Jazz and Funk naturally and effortlessly. The Band is tight and the songs are strong. If you haven't seen Paul, you're missing out on something special right here in Boston!"
