Blues & Beyond

A good vibes jam band now based in Central Vermont WITH GREAT SONGS AND TONS OF POSITIVE ENERGY!

Blues & Beyond originated in the Burlington Vermont area as a collection of players who all attended the “Blues Jams” hosted by the (now) Vermont Blues Society. Guitarist and bandleader Timothy James initiated the concept of taking the music beyond Blues to infuse Jazz, Soul, and Lounge music. Inevitably, dance Rock favorites were added to the mix to create a powerhouse concert and night club experience.

     Now based in Central Vermont, Blues & Beyond has evolved into a high energy Jam Band writing a big part of their music but still playing their arrangements of favorites from the Modern American Song Book… and yes,  Blues !!

Blues & Beyond has performed at the Burlington Discover Jazz Fest, Concerts on the Green Maple Tree Place Williston, Leunigs Bistro, On Tap in Essex, Brocklebank Brewing, Strafford Concert Series, SoRo Old Home Days, Off the Rails at Okemo, and other Vermont venues.

Band members are from left to right: Jay Osborn on Drums, John Nicholas Ditcheos on Piano and Organ, Timothy James on Guitar, Dan Roda on Bass.
