Description:It's an honor to welcome back "Amays and Blue" to Potter's Lounge. Singer-songwriter-guitarist Alex Mays, along with singer-saxophonist Eddie "Blue" Lester make up this blues-based duo. Alex & Eddie cover a variety of original and tasteful covers, which include roots, delta-style, jump, and smooth jazzy blues. Eddie "Blue" Lester hails from Texas - moving to Oklahoma to attend college. Ending up in Tennessee, he played on the 'Chittlin' Circuit' with Billy Cox in 'The Jimmy Church Revue.' Eddie has shared the stage with Michael Burks, Tab Benoit, Tommy Castro, Larry Garner, Peter Harper, Magic Slim & The Teardrops, and many more. Alex Mays was born and raised in rural North Carolina, where he grew up listening to his father play guitar & sing. Given a guitar at the tender age of 10, Alex began learning the old-time rock&roll, and country tunes that his father had performed in his youth. By the age of 20, he had found his way to Kalamazoo, and began playing the Kalamazoo music circuit. Alex incorporates a variety of styles in his playing...from rock, blues, southern rock, and jazz. These two popular Kalamazoo musicians have a large and loyal following - and are regulars in countless venues, concerts, and festivals throughout the area. Don't miss an exciting night of blues music with "Amays and Blue."
