Style: * BLUES *

Member Since: 2004

City: Tinton Falls, NJ

Formerly with Clarence Clemmons & The Red Bank Rockers. Mr. Ryan’s guitar delivery is serious, forthright and dead on! Never one to follow the crowd, his approach to the blues is crisp, clean and fresh. A friend to the blues scene for many years, he's played with such legendary talent as Nicky Addio and organist Jeff Levine.

Mr. Ryan is joined by Bill Lilley (AKA Lazybones) on harmonica and vocals. Bill has studied the blues harp for nearly thirty years and was fortunate enough to have befriended the legendary Sonny Terry in the late 1970's. As a founding member of Triplex Blues Band, The Renegade Blues Band and The Fairlanes, Bill has the experience it takes to round out the Bluescasters ensemble. Playing alongside Billy Hector with the Fairlanes for nearly 10 years, he has honed his skills to perfection and is considered to be one of the top harp players in the field today.
