From The Boa Constrictors
The Boa Constrictors are a hand-assembled band of Detroit's very best musicians. All of the members came from the cores of many of the very best Blues bands that Detroit has to offer. The Boa Constrictors are a Detroit Blues band with a true Detroit pedigree. When you come to a Boa Constrictors show, you are hearing PURE Detroit Blues with a PURE Detroit attitude. Detroit Blues has it's own distinctive style. It is very greasy, grimy, and lowdown. It's industrial sound evolved from Delta Blues with the northern migration for factory jobs during Detroit's industrial revolution. It's birthplaces and homes were Paradise Valley and Hastings Street. Our main course recipe comes from the harmonica bands of Little Walter, Jerry Portnoy, Junior Wells, Paul Butterfield, and Sonny Boy Williamson (1 and 2). We also throw in a dash of Rockabilly for flavor. We have a heaping helping of Detroit Blues influence as well.
