BLUE LIGHTNING BAND
Musician in Rockford, IL
Guitar slinger Steve Ditzell, who spent many years touring with Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, and Koko Taylor is influenced by Otis Rush's Singing String sound more than Stevie Ray Vaughan, yet prefers to keep the band rocking hard in the way the late SRV did. A-list sidemen Dave Kaye (bass) and Marty Binder (drums) have the firepower to make sure it does. His vocals are confident and never forced, showing the lessons he's learned through the years.
