I am first generation "County", born and raised on Eastlake Rd. to hardy, imported Dutch parents. After about 25 some odd years of "away" time (not jail) my wife, who is of much more established County stock, and 2 kids moved to Bloomfield. When push comes to shove I have to blame my brother for my blues beginnings. He kept bringing home those darn Johnny Winter, Roy Buchanan and Ten Years After albums. I picked up my first harmonica (because I was too cheap to buy a guitar) when I was in my early teens and there is normally a "tin sandwich" somewhere near-by. At the age of 45 I finally realized every teenager's dream and found myself playing in a rock and roll band (albeit with some blues thrown in) called Swamp College. Psst- available for gigs.
