Sock Rockin'. Juke Jumpin'. The kings of swingin' good times, Dekkm Records recording artists, James Reeser and the Backseat Drivers!
Chicago born, James has been performing in west Michigan for well over 20 years. He and his band perform an upbeat and energetic style of Blues. Originally the guitarist for the band, James eventually took over the role as the front man, crafting his uniquely raw harp tone and vocals.
Robby Jewett, a veteran bass player formerly based in Austin, Texas, has been at it since 1989 as a full time musician. With years of experience, he has performed with legendary music figures such as Buddy Miles, Dale Watson, and Long John Hunter.
Dan Mish is a drummer who began playing jazz and blues professionally at the age of 16. He also took a residency at Fort Mackinac, were he learned to play traditional fife and bagpipe. As dynamic as he is diverse, from punk to polka, and a former member in the North American champion pipe band drum corps, he's an exciting drummer to watch.
Marcus Giddings, a young up and coming guitar player, is building a reputation around West Michigan for his playing style on stage. Taking inspiration from greats like Charlie Baty, Duke Robillard, Ronnie Earl, and Junior Watson. With great tone and tasty licks, he's sure to keep you captivated.
