Things seemed to be running pretty smooth. Midway through the recording of their first record, the rhythm section decided it was time to call it quits. This left the three original members with a decision to make: press on with the album and regroup, or fold. The three decided that they had invested far too much to turn back now, so they opted to replace the rhythm section and continue on. Long time friend Theron Shelton was the called to handle the drumming duties. From the first "jam session" everyone knew that Theron was the perfect fit. His drumming and personality added new life and energy to band.
The next two years were spent touring the east coast and mid western region, building an extremely loyal following of friends and fans alike. Along the way The Blue Method has shared the stage with the likes of Soulive, Chick Corea, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, The Benevento Russo Duo, Ozomatli, John Legend, Little Feat, Oteil Burbridge (Allman Brothers Band), Leela James, The Disco Biscuits, and Ween. They have also managed to sell over 7000 copies of their album "Kill the Music, Vol 1", which is no small task for a completely independent act. In 2005 The Blue Method was named "Best New Act" by the Home Grown Music Network. Their song "Don't They" holds the record as the all time #1 funk song at Garageband.com. In 2005 they also won the annual Relix Magazine Jam-off award.
The Blue Method now averages over 150 shows a year. The band has improved their sound even further by adding Philadelphia bassist Rah Sungee to the lineup. The Blue Method will release their much anticipated sophomore album in April of 2007.Now YOU are Tuned In to ...
