Tuned In to The Blue Method!

December 1, 2007 Fusing traditional funk and soul with new style rock, The Blue Method is an impressive display of what music can sound like when you achieve the right blend of the new with the old. However that's not just a reflection of their sound, but also of their history.

After the tragic death of a close friend and band mate, guitarist Michael Patriarca and saxophone player Tom Long found themselves looking for a new band. The larger than life voice of Brian Williams was referred to them by a friend, and after a hit and miss in the procession department, the band added long-time friend Theron Shelton to the equation. Bass player Rah Sungee was the last addition to the group, completing the circle.

The band released the debut album "Kill the Music, Vol. 1" in 2003, and since then they have toured up and down the East Coast. The Blue Method has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the business, including Soulive, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Ozomatli, John Legend, The Disco Biscuits, and Ween. They've also managed to sell over 7000 copies of their album while on tour!

The Home Grown Network honored The Blue Method as the "Best New Act" in 2005, and their song "Don't They" stands as the all time #1 funk song at Garageband.com.

Tuned In experienced The Blue Method at the World Café LIVE this past October. Check out excerpts from their performance in the media player at the top of the page.
