WELCOME IN THE BLUESBOX ------------------------------------ Thank you all for the support and the interest shown in our music since we started out in December 2006. BLUESBOX is a group of friends playing together, recording and uploading their stuff in the internet. It's not a traditional band ..... maybe it's more like an independent recording label. Everything is done without profit being involved, though. It costs us no big money to do it. I tell you: we would buy our instruments and use our time to play them anyway, wouldn't we ? There you go, as silly as it can be ..... we just do it for the sake of music. Unluckily we can be very lazy: most of the things are totally improvised ..... and recorded in a very basic way ..... but does it really matter ? Nobody's perfect ... right ? Thanks for your visit ..... we appreciate it. And remember .... you can listen, download, broadcast everything for free. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ [][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Here's who is who ..... _________________ - T-BONE MUSTANG a.k.a.

Band/artist history
I started playing drums when I was 7 years old, back in Christmas 1973 when Santa gave me my first drum kit as a present. At some point I remember the drums disappeared. My parents blame it on the neighbors. I then started playing acoustic guitar at 13. I got back on drums as soon as I could afford some. I played rock, rock'n roll and blues in many bands, with all the guys above. I never stopped playing and I never will. ---------------------------------------------------------------------
Have you performed in front of an audience?
We all play live, but in different bands and situations. ---------------------------------------------------------------------
