Real Organic Music In The Flow, as a musical performance style, relies on proven tunes naturally fertilized with great chops, sweet instruments, and occasional tending without losing the tastes and tangs of discovery in the moment.
Each member brings a lifetime musical commitment to the stage knowing that the energetic success of the event is contingent on all three partners: the band and the audience pooling their love of the music and of each other to become another entity - some call the spirit.
This tradition of community has been around since the beginning of time. BJS & BSUP pick it up with field songs and spirituals of the Old South; ride with it during its transformation into the sophisticated Vintage Cafe Society Blues style of the 30's, 40's and 50's; and finally offer original juicy pieces taken from life slices along the way.
Based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, BJS & BSUP appear at various festivals, concerts, corporate and non-profit special events around the country. They are particularly adept at creating theme driven shows highlighting the purpose of each event with playbills, posters, workshops, and presentations.
