KENNY WAYNE SHEPARD, BUDDY GUY, and producer DUKE ROBILLARD add to the top names of this line up. He also worked with KENNY WAYNE SHEPARD on his newest CD/DVD release “TEN DAYS OUT”. In addition to playing with Kenny, Bryan shared the stage with PINE TOP PERKINS, HUBERT SUMLIN, BUDDY FLETT and WILLIE” BIG EYES” SMITH, when in 2007 they played with Kenny and his band on NBC’S TONITE SHOW with JAY LENO. He also performed for BB KING IN 2005 for his birthday celebration. Bryan recently received a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Blues Album “Live in Chicago” on the Kenny Wayne Shepard CD sharing the stage again with HUBERT SUMLIN, BUDDY FLETT and WILLIE” BIG EYES” SMITH. Early in Bryan’s career he opened for MUDDY WATERS at SUMMERFEST, at which time Muddy hugged him and said, “Bryan, stay with this, one day you’re going to be a living legend.” Bryan is going strong, touring across the US, Canada, Europe, and Brazil playing the blues with the BLUES POWER BAND!
