Pinchback Blues plays old-school urban blues in the styles of Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey, Leroy Carr, and Tampa Red. Have a listen and you'll say "Yas, Yas, Yas"!

In 2005, Dan Bowden and Bob Christopherson joined forces to explore the great pre-war piano/guitar groups, leading them to the music of Leroy Carr, Scrapper Blackwell, and Tampa Red. When vocalist Minden Jones auditioned with her repertoire of Bessie Smith and Ma Rainey, Pinchback Blues was born.

What's a pinchback? In "pinchback blues," advice is offered to women to avoid being taken advantage of by a handsome, fast-talking, and unemployed "pinchback" and to find a decent, hard-working man with a job.
