James Reeser Music Review: Duane states he first heard James Reeser and the Backseat Drivers when they opened for Davy Knowles at the 97 WLAV Summertime blues concert in the summer of 2019.  Was impressed with their tightness, yet the ability to walk along the line of a good old blues jam.

West Coast and swing style blues

The swing feeling, blues driven beat from a little band out of West Michigan.  James Reeser leads the crew with his vocal and harmonica style that entertains the audience. 

About James Reeser

Taken from their facebook page:

A Quahog clam takes 20 years to make a pearl. James’ gritty harp and vocals took just as long.

Class is in session! What’s Dan Mish teaching today? Dynamics.

Minister Charles Johnson, bass so divine you’d have thought you were in church!

Marcus Giddings traded four out of five senses for a guitar. His style now? Tasty.

This four piece will make you jump, jive, and dive in for more!
