Wil Blades Trio

Wil Blades quartet played us some funky jams at cozmic pizza!


Skerik sounded great on sax.  Simon brought the funk with his phat beats, and Andy played some killer solos and provided a skeletal structure for it all to rest on. Wil uses repetition like a master. Songs are over twelve minutes long, but no complaints when they sound solid from start to finish, with dynamics and a perky, zip-in-your-step feel! They call San Francisco ” home” thought the band is from all over! Check out their tour dates if you like jimmy smith, Medeski Martin and Wood, or… Good, jazz influenced funk jam bands! On this tour they played some David Bowie covers such as “Life on Mars.”

Eleven Eyes and WIl Blades

Eugene’s best jam band! ELEVEN EYES


They opened for young Organist Wil Blades, who plays with Stanton Moore and Billy Martin and many many others! I made the error of spelling his name with two “l”s but I fixed it in the second drawing… colored pencils… nice tools.100_3586 100_3587
