Bushwick Blooze Band was formed in 2018 when Chas Rio (bass) recruited Brother Dave - a consummate and seasoned bluesman - on guitars and vocals to create a blues and rock band for both covers of traditional blues tunes and for new material.
With the addition of David Cornejo on drums the band was up and running, and released their first album "Cryin' for the L Train" in the Fall of 2018. That quickly led to the composition of new songs in both the traditional blues form as well as new blues-rock structures. The band has been back in the studio working on originals which range from hard hitting blues-rock tunes to jazz influenced love songs. They perform regularly in the NYC area.
