The Bluescasters have been leaving an impression on blues enthusiasts in Dutchess County NY and its environs for decades. This smokin’ Poughkeepsie-based blues trio whose driving rhythm, soulful guitar and vocals gets crowds on their feet! They have nurtured local talent and had the great fortune to host real legends, such as Lowell Fulson, Carey Bell and Hubert Sumlin.
The band has opened for notables The Fabulous Thunderbirds, South Side Johnny and the Asbury Jukes and even Chuck Berry, playing venues throughout the tri-state area and New York’s Capital District, for over 20 years.
Big Joe Fitz, host of the “Blues Break” on Radio Woodstock WDST (100.1), has been praising the accomplishments of this band for many years!
