The following are artists alphabetically by “J.” We are slowly adding our over 200 alumni to this page. Below are several of the artists that have performed at one of our venues and come back from time to time.
Bryce Janey began his career at the age of 13 in his hometown of Marion, IA in a family blues-rock trio called The Janeys and played regionally and nationally from Chicago to Los Angeles. They shared the stage with many Chicago artist and national acts, including Buddy Guy, Delbert McClinton, Blues Traveler, Johnny Winter, and Elvin Bishop. Bryce has even performed onstage with Kenny Neal, Buddy Guy, Tab Benoit, and including the late great “Queen of the Blues” Koko Taylor. While still in The Janeys, Bryce began a solo career and released his first CD, Practice What You Preach in 1995. Since then, he has released many more CDs, most of which have gained national attention including a five star rating from Blues Access magazine, as well as stellar reviews from Blues Revue and Living Blues. Bryce Was Inducted into the Iow Rock-n-Roll Hall Of Fame in 2007. Bryces albums have been described ed as ”Phenomenal, top-shelf, world-class, soul-powered, retro-70s bluesy heavy guitar with ‘six string mojo’ that truly delivers on all levels of greatness,” and that “this is Bryce Janey’s finest hour and he stands tall in the supreme blues/rock guitar world.” Bryce won the Iowa Blues Challenge in 2011, and in 2012 was an IBC Semi-Finalist in Memphis,TN.
