From Frenchie's Blues Destroyers
Frenchie's Blues Destroyers is a gritty Rock 'n' Roll band steeped in the tradition of old American Blues as well as all the greats that sprung out of the genre in the sixties (i.e. British Blues Boom and it's American counterparts of the era). Several years ago Frenchie and Brother Pete, crossed paths in Texas while playing in different bands. Brother Pete was playing with an established Country artist at the time, Jack Ingram, and when the guitar slot came available, he suggested Frenchie to fill it. Jack was convinced by Frenchie's talents and promptly joined in... and so for six years, Frenchie & Brother Pete played together developing a unique musical and personal bond (a Richards/Watts - like chemistry) while touring extensively with Ingram. During that time, Frenchie began writing and recording his own material, drawing heavily from the influences of the Rock 'n' Roll and Blues music on which his father had raised him. Desiring to take advantage of downtime from Ingram's touring and opportunity, Brother Pete urged Frenchie to take his talents to the stage as a front man, playing and singing his own songs! Frenchie's Blues Destroyers was born out of desire and passion, and a true DIY attitude. It is a no nonsense, no-frills band that bears its teeth with more of a sly grin than a grimace.
