Inspired by Syracuse’s long history of the blues, Max and John carry on the tradition as one of the area’s foremost duo acts. Their use of the guitar, harmonica, piano, and vocals mix traditions from America’s roots. The result is a refreshing blend of blues, jazz, and funk. Both are native to the area where they currently live and perform. They have recently started playing with the talented drummer Stephen Collie, who helps add a new level of energy to their shows.
