Jimmy Bez is Boston’s young up-and-coming blues-rock guitar sensation. A true guitar prodigy, by the age of 12 he was already a prominent player on the original rock scene in Boston garnering awards as well as radio play of his original songs. A prolific songwriter and blues fan, he formed the Jimmy Bez Blues Band in 2015 debuting his original blues songs at the Boston Blues Society’s Blues Challenge, winning the under 21 youth category. In January 2016, he represented Boston in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis to rave reviews. His style is often compared to a young Bonamassa with strains of early Clapton and late Mike Bloomfield. He is currently in the studio recording his debut blues EP due for release in May 2016. Don’t miss your opportunity to catch this upcoming star in an intimate local venue. Monster guitar chops and extraordinary songwriting will make you a lifelong fan.
