The Band

Blues Weiser

The Band:
Jozz Fernandez - Guitar & Vocals
                    Bobysan - Bass & Backing vocals
Alex - Drums
                                 Lee - Guitar and Backing vocals

Blues Weiser started as a power trio back in 2014.
At this time is was Jozz, Bobysan and Senen. (Senen left the band in 2015 because of personal issues)

We wrote 7 songs but only got to record 2 songs, "Knuckle Duster" and Tie Breaker".
When Senen left we looked for a new drummer and we contacted Alex, who we saw previously with another band. Bobysan already jammed with Alex 6 years earlier but lost contact over the years.

Blues Weiser decided to start from scratch again and start writing new songs with Alex.
The vibe was great and soon after they started recording their new album.
This time they decided to do everything themselves and not to go to a studio.
Using a ZOOMR24 and invested in relevant equipment what was necessary to complete the recording at the end of 2015.
After finishing the recording Jozz locked himself up in his home studio, and devoted himself for the mixing and mastering process for the next couple of months.
Every so many days the band would meet up and listen to the results and make some small changes and add some backing vocals.

The album is called "Booze for Blues" and contains 7 songs + the 2 songs that where recorded with Senen.
"Booze for Blues" was released on May 23rd 2016
The first (Limited - RED EDITION) 120 Albums where sold within 3 months.

End of July 2016 Jozz and Bobysan felt like they needed an 2nd guitarist to add more depth to their sound of "Blues Weiser Campfire Experience". This is a complete acoustic set, where they play at private parties and small bars.
Out of the blue, the band received a phone call from "Lee" who they met a year ago. Lee was looking for a new musical opportunity. The band offered him to come down for a chat and quickly followed by a rehearsal to see if flow was there. After a couple of rehearsals they decided to include him in the main band as well.
