Attract a wide audience by giving bands like Goldenseal a chance to play at some of your great events. Goldenseal is not a traditional blues band but has deep blues influences which are obvious. This band will help to draw in lovers of blues, popular music and rock at the same time drawing attention to JSJBF and the Blues experience.

Joe Hughes the song writer, lead singer & rhythm guitar player for the band.
"I try to sing every song like its my last chance to sing. While onstage, I feel the passion for both the lyrics and the music as they come directly out of people, feelings and events in my life. Goldenseal gives me the opportunity and platform to convey important concepts while entertaining many people. I believe in the contract that exists between musician and fan and decided several years ago to surround myself with the best musicians and people I could find - and to give 100 percent every gig I play."

Pat Martucci is the drummer and backup vocalist. He has an extensive musical background playing drums, percussion, and piano. He has been dedicated to his craft since childhood and has studied with some of the best and most notable drummers/percussionists in the field. He has worked and recorded with many professional artists and has performed at many wonderful venues. However, he believes that being part of GOLDENSEAL is the most rewarding as the band is very creativity, and the performances are always interactive and powerful. He firmly believes that the drummer's approach and impact on music, through dynamics and feel, can make a band sound great!

Jesse Kessler is a classically trained musician, composer, and arranger specializing in upright and electric bass.
He has performed in many tri-state area bands covering a wide range of styles including rock, jazz, country, latin, and hip hop as a freelance "hired gun". Along with playing as bassist for Goldenseal, Jesse owns a music studio in Metuchen, NJ and offers his expertise in teaching as well as recording. Born into a musical family, and you'll often see his dad on stage playing harmonica. His music is full time! Influences range from Cliff Burton to Coltrane

John is the lead guitarist in GS. "I have been playing guitar for most of my life and have always enjoyed writing and arranging original music. I also like playing cover tunes that connect with the crowd. My approach to soloing is all about finding the right notes for the song rather than the right notes for my head. I have many guitar influences including Jerry Garcia, Dickey Betts, Keith Richards, and Gary Rossington. -- Here's to hittin' the note!"
