The South City Blues Band is dedicated to the groove—a unique blend of swinging Jump Blues, Jazz/Funk Blues, and R&B. Whatever you want to call it – it will get you p and moving. They play a variety of styles to keep it interesting, but the rhythm section keeps it in the pocket, never straying far from the source – the Blues. Between the cutting vocals, ripping guitar lines, wailing sax, and swinging rhythm – they don’t let up.
Wendy DeWitt spreads the gospel of Chicago based blues piano and boogie woogie in the stylings of Otis Spann, Memphis Slim, Sunnyland Slim and Albert Ammons. She has worked with contemporary greats Steve Freund, Otis Rush and the late Hank Ballard.
Wendy has appeared with Charlie Musslewhite, Otis Rush and Jimmy Thackery around the country. She tours in Europe and recently returned from a Paris tour and opening for Marcia Ball.
