Daryl "TuTu" Jumper. A veteran drummer of the regional blues scene whose hard driving yet tasteful style fit the band like a glove. TuTu is a well-rounded musician whose credits include stints with The Ballet Met, and National acts like Kenny Neal and KoKo Taylor. His vocal ability helps put the band in a class with few others.
Manny Manuel. Relocating to Ohio from Louisiana, Manny was itching to continue his musical pursuits. After hooking up with a local band on drums and winning the Columbus Blues Alliance Best Blues Band competition he decide to switch to his main instrument-the Bass and look for greener pastures. Destination-Blues DeVilles.
Individually, these musicians are all very accomplished. But collectively is where they really shine. Four instruments turned into one voice. Their covers of blues songs show the inventiveness and creativity of the group as a whole. The arrangements are tight and true to the song without sounding trite and always sounding alive and contemporary. Their original material takes on a whole new flavor, rooted in the blues, but stretching the boundaries in all directions. Glimpses of Hendrix and Bramhall II mixed with tight vocal harmonies. Old mixed with new as few have done it. Live is where you realize the power of their show visually. The emotion and commitment are obvious, not contrived or rehearsed. Their audience always gets all the band has to give, on any night...
