    Fronted by Jason Lockwood, a true T-Bone Walker/Charlie Christian aficionado on the guitar/vocals, the Stella Vees are known for their yearly daytime jam in Handy Hall at the IBC in Memphis. Lately the Stellas have added a new member, my favorite harp player in this area of the country (cos he's likely the best!)... Mark Hoekstra. Jason is a very smooth vocalist... a truly fine guitarist and front man. Mark's dynamic showmanship and vocals was really a standout...he has played with some notables as 'Big Eyed' Willie Smith (late 'Legendary Blues Band' tours), Steve Arvey, and of course, Johnny Roy & the RubTones!

    Jason Lockwood of the Stella Vees from Lexington, Kentucky...I never get tired of listening to him play...This cat is THE smoothest player I've seen. Nothing fancy or tricky, no jumping around or trying to do a marathon on the fretboard. Just plain and simple blues guitar. Silk is the word that comes to mind when I think about his playing.

    This CD is loaded with good blues tunes. The songs are performed with a zeal not often heard in new releases, and the playing is flawless. These guys are the real deal. A must buy in my book.
