In the debut edition of Shake's Hall Pass, The Eric Jerardi Band (Eric Jerardi, Gary Gates and Adam Wheeler) visited the WYSO studios for a live performance. The trio chatted with Hall of Fame Blues host Shakin' Dave Hussong about recording, guitar playing and inspiration, and their shared blues history.
After coming together as a band in 2007, Miss Lissa and Company have been gaining recognition in the regional and international blues scene. In 2011, the Dayton band won the Cincinnati Blues Challenge which sent them to the International Blues Challenge in Memphis earlier this year. Miss Lissa and Company is looking ahead to lots of regional live performances in the late summer and early fall with the hopes of recording a full-length follow-up to their EP, Back to Your Mamma.
