Boston based blues guitarist Monster Mike Welch is a seasoned veteran of the international blues scene who has carved out a successful living as a highly accomplished and in-demand guitarist. To date, Welch has released six albums under his own name and in 2001, he joined the ranks of one of New England’s most beloved blues institutions, Sugar Ray and the Bluetones. Welch has received two consecutive Blues Music Award nominations by the Blues Foundation for Instrumentalist-Guitar beginning in 2016.

Chicago based Mike Ledbetter delivered exceptional vocals and rhythm guitar for eight years with the world touring Nick Moss Band, and revealed his powerful voice again on Ronnie Earl’s Father’s Day. As a trained opera singer and one who has sung in every conceivable genre, Ledbetter channels his range, intonation and phrasing into what he feels is the most emotional music, the blues.
