J&B Blues Project

Eleven year old twin brothers Jeff and Brian Brown-Hill, better known as the J&B Blues Project, will stop by Tell Us A Tale to play a few tunes. Despite playing only four years, these boys sound as though as they started straight out of diapers.

In the summer of 2005, the fraternal twins, who were 9 years old at the time, began attending open mic night at Bella Bagel Café in Stafford, Virginia. In October of 2005, they bought used electric guitars and began playing more of their favorite genre, the blues. Having been chided so many times about playing the blues at their age, they came up with a trademark slogan "Never too young to play the blues."

Brian and Jeff were asked to do their first show in November 2005 and the "J & B Blues Project" was born. They first performed in front of a live audience at Bella Bagel Café, a local coffeehouse. They became crowd favorites and were a permanent part of the "Live Music on Saturdays" at Bella until the coffeehouse lost its lease in January 2007. The J & B Blues Project love to play and sing electric and acoustic blues, classic rock, folk and their own compositions.

The J & B Blues Project are out performing in many different venues these days. They have met many wonderful musicians and music fans.
