Texas Bluesjam

The people that sing!

These are the female vocalists, the guitarist/vocalists,
the singers that play harp, and all the rest of
those guys and gals that sing at the blues jams!
They call the songs, then hope the guys onstage catch the groove,
and then they sing whether the music is what they expected or not!
You can't scare these guys at all, because they know what to do!
They're here to sing!

This site features RealAudio sound clip files from the musicians at the jams.





Carolyn Wonderland plays guitar and fronts her own band, 'Carolyn Wonderland and the Imperial Monkeys'.

On jam night, Carolyn turns our stage into a wonderland, as we wonder which song she'll call up next.

Her band has been quite busy promoting their new CD, so we never know when she may show up.

Sonny James is one hell of an entertainer. He sings and puts on a show in the spirit of his uncles and cousins.

His family tree includes Elmore James, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Albert King and Davy Jones (of the Monkees)! Heck....even President Clinton is his 13th cousin!

When Sonny is onstage....watch out! You never know what might happen!


Lizzie Harrah is a producer, engineer, songwriter, keyboardist, and singer. She was recently described in Guitar School Magazine as the perfect woman (due to her ability to discuss the 3 Gs - gears, gaming and guitars).

We first met when I was visiting my best friend, Roger Tausz, at his job at Digital Services recording studio where Lizzie was programming some synth/sequencer tracks for ZZ Top. On some nights, Lizzie sings the blues with us (and for us).

Lizzie is working on a CD of her own for late '97 release.





Chip Arnold plays piano and harp and sings while he plays his guitar.

Chip's from Memphis, but his sound has a lot of Chicago and New Orleans and New York and....

He shows a lot of range in his guitar playing and song selection.
He fronts his own band, THE TERRAPLANES.

Sandy Hickey sings the blues in the Texas Roadhouse tradition.

When Sandy takes the stage at the blues jams, she wails and entertains, and everybody has a good time.

Sandy is the elected Secretary of the Houston Blues Society.

Sandy and Sonny James make a good team, and I've had the pleasure of doing a few gigs together with the two of them.

"Sonny Boy" Terry plays harp and sings. We met when he was first starting out, and he has become a seasoned pro and polished entertainer during the years I've known him.

He's paid his dues as a sideman for the better part of two decades, and his stints with Johnny "Clyde" Copeland and Joe "Guitar" Hughes have prepared him well for fronting his own band.

Terry was instrumental in forming 'The Houston Blues Society' a few years back. His work there helps to insure the preservation of our Houston Blues heritage.





Janice sings in an easy, funky style with the full power coming forth only when she feels the time is right.

She often comes out with Jon Schupin, but they seldom jam together, choosing instead to listen - each to the other.

Rick Lee puts on a show. He sings, he tells stories, he plays guitar, he plays guitar with a beer bottle, he plays guitar behind his back, he plays guitar with his tongue, he plays guitar while running outside into the street....

Rick seems to have been influenced by the Kings - Freddie, B.B., and Albert.

He does go a long way toward answering the proverbial question, "Can a Chinese man play the blues?"!

I'll be adding more photos as they are taken, submitted and scanned...
