Hooch and the Bluesicians
A blend of fiery, hard driving Chicago blues mixed with a healthy dose of California swing with attitude. Fronted by harmonica meister Bob "Hoochie Coochie" Paolucci and paired with old school musicians, their interlocking playing style is guaranteed to give fans their money's worth!
Hooch's varied musical styles include everything from burning Chicago blues to melodic Delta blues to country rock to country western to reggae to jazz. His firm belief that there is no one way to play the harp and no one musical genre to play with it shows in his style and in his engaging performances.
Bob "Hoochie Coochie" Paolucci (Hooch for short), is a North Jersey native musician/songwriter and has been playing harmonica for over thirty-eight years as well as playing guitar and singing for over thirty-two years. He is a mostly self-taught musician, with the exceptions of having the great honor of having studied with both Sonny Terry (country/folk blues great) and Harry Feldman (chromatic virtuoso with The Harmonica Rascals). Hooch has been lucky enough to have toured with two great guitar legends, Son Seals (where he got his "Hoochie Coochie" nickname) and Louisiana Red, and has also shared the stage with performers like Johnny Johnson, Big Bill Morganfield (Son of Muddy Waters), Shamika Copeland, Koko Taylor, Junior Wells, Johnny Winters, Sammy Lawhorn, Victoria Spivy, Vasser Clemens, the 1995 Blues Hall of Fame recipient Mr. Sam Taylor, Eddie Shaw, Jimmy Vivino & The Conan O’Brian Band, Little Sammy Davis, Eddie Brogotti (Young Rascals), Todd Wolfe (guitarist for Sheryl Crow), Odessa, and even (oh my God) Don Ho.

The band is tight and the vibe is right, Schroeder's Ghost will haunt you well past this night.
is a 5-piece force of rock-n-blues nature who have made a name for themselves by featuring a treasure trove of eclectic little musical nuggets that continuously bring down the house, and by putting on a show that will leave you feeling like you've just been to a concert at Madison Square Garden.
All the band members are veterans of the tri-state music scene and abroad, and have shared the stage with many national artists and bands over the years. These uber-talented musicians share a camaraderie and level of professionalism rarely seen these days, which directly translates to the quality of the product.
The band has a slammin' set of unique tunes on their menu that you don't hear often (if you've heard them at all), and they serve 'em up in a most interesting way. But, alas, this is something that must been seen and heard, as merely reading about it can't possibly capture the essence that is Schroeder's Ghost.
The band is tight! The vibe is right!

The Halley Devestern Band
DeVestern's raw, bluesy vocals and unique songwriting have won her and the band opening slots for such blues and rock greats as John Hammond, Jimmy Vaughan, Gov't. Mule, Son Seals, Johnny Winter, Bonnie Bramlett and Antigone Rising.
There's no question that DeVestern has a powerful voice. She's toured with Big Brother and the Holding Company by their invitation.
Halley DeVestern burst on the scene with the release of her first album, SUGAR FREE, of which Newsday declared, "Had Maria McKee lived up to her potential, this is the record she would have made." LIVE AT THE TOWPATH INN, a live acoustic set taken from club and radio performances, was released in 2000 and named one of the top 20 CDs of 2000 by The Audio Realm (NWEZ.NET). The 2003 album SUPERHERO KILLER, was hailed as "an album with female vocals in the same lines of Janis [Joplin]'s rough hewn blues, but with an even more raw and even more edgy quality." The feminist publication Expository Magazine notes that "[song] titles like "Strangled in the Park" only hint at the territory DeVestern is willing to tread."
DeVestern has been on the cover of Good Times (The Reincarnation of Janis?), and appeared in Billboard, Seventeen, CosmoGIRL, The New York Times, Newsday and many other prestigious publications.
