The Phantom Blues Band was formed as a studio band to back up Taj Mahal on his CD, Dancing the Blues. Their association with Taj led to headlining clubs, theaters, and festivals throughout the U.S., Europe, and Japan and being honored with two Grammys and a W.C.Handy Blues Award.
At heart, The Phantom Blues Band’s sound is a cross-breeding of many different musical styles which includes Blues, Jazz, R&B, Gospel, Rock and Roll, and Reggae. Their Texas, Kansas and Oklahoma musical roots and their eclecticism have afforded them well in their decades as Hollywood studio musicians, recording with many notable recording artists including Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Rolling Stones, Taj Mahal, Joe Cocker, Jimi Hendrix, Etta James, Elton John, Leon Russell, Little Feat, and B.B. King.
