Jeff Gonzales & Wanda Houston
Ragtime, Delta and Original Blues
These two talents came together in the Spring of 2010 and forged a bond seated in a blues that will take you back to a time and place where the pace is slow, the mud is red and the heart longs to beat free. Their music and commentary will at times be educational, at other times informational, still other times brash and bawdy, but at all times entertaining. Their duo expands to a rhythm quartet when needed to accommodate larger venues and parties upon request.
Our first CD, "Big & Bigger Live" (left) contains 9 original songs that Jeff wrote for Wanda as a part of their "Big & Bigger" duo. Their second CD (right), "Live in Stockbridge", consists of old blues and jazz tunes, and the third CD, "Live, Again" (below, left) is another eight originals written for Wanda.
