Started playing in the 7th grade from brother Roy showing me Jimmy Reed. Been in the accidental right place & time to get to pick some with some of my heros. It's all fun.

Jeff Hughs

Jeff was the alter ego of BLUTO and always challenged me to come up with hot new licks. He taught lessons and would come to practice with great new cord inversions and riffs to get us working on new songs. He's building guitars and studio tracking now days ...

Don Issac

Don started out as my drummer in an early band but got tired of packing drum cases long after everyone else was finished. So he had me teach him bass fundamentals and went on to be rock solid bassman.

Don ,George, Jeff, John
John (me) did a lot of solo work on 3 CD'S on the original mp3 music site getting paid per 1000 plays & publishing discs etc. I licensed some fun old standards that I will rotate through N1M .
I jammed with Freddie King , Johnny Winters , Jimmy Vaughn , Bugs Henderson ,Edgar Cruz , I was the head usher in Dallas at the Memorial Auditorium. Ushered up close Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin , Iron Butterfly , James Brown , The Chambers Brothers , Vanilla Fudge +
Cooked for Styx , Willie Nelson , Cheap Trick , Heart , Pat Benatar , Mel Gibson , Joe Nickels , Al Green , The Wreckers , Earth Wind & Fire , Jewel ,The Temptations, The Commodors , etc.......The days of the original mp3 site hosted my first online music presence . I did 3 CDs of solo fun tunes that went from the mp3 site out to a few blues radio format jockeys etc. The solo work was on an old 4 track tape deck. Using LOTS of GUITARS , a K1000 synth ,2 congas , E-bow , and done as quick as 1 offs , no do overs . Tired Possum Blues , Hard Roads Blues ,Blues B4 Guitarski , Amped Out , El Gato ( a cat in Puerta Vallarta MX) , Raga To Ravi , Guitar Raga for Dr. Shandrakant (Ravi's prodigy student)
This band started in 2002 from 3/4 of my old band when I met Jeff the other guitar player. We hit it off 1 afternoon and I called up my old band mates & set up a 4 piece jam. We all enjoyed Hendrix , Pink Floyd , Cream , Freddie King , old blues etc. We quickly turned into 20 Minute Nap as a band and kept the name for 5 years untill BLUTO popped up during a party & we changed our name . Did some Tequila shots & lots of jamming. Nobody but me would sing , so I was stuck as a solo vocal with NO harmony etc ! Really had lots of fun playing around central Oklahoma. Our biggest gig was the yearly festival from Beta Theta Pi's Woodstock Party in a big field with bus loads of frat & sorority girls from OU & OSU attending. They worked on tiedye clothes for a week prior & looked like a field of Hippies. Long , fun sets and the 2nd band wasn't ready so we got to play for almost 2 hrs. This was a fun group of guys wanting to kill 2-3 Friday nights a month jamming & sipping Tequila etc. project. After 9 months or so we ventured out to play for a company party ., did the Hall Park Summer Festival Stage , played at BROTHER's patio , played a Christmas party for OU faculty at 11am that felt really strange to sing Blues & drinking party songs that early , house warming party on the new slab of concrete , . Mostly enjoying playing for each other to get an approving nod from Jeff on guitar if I ever came up with a fun lick etc. Never expected to post anymore of my music after the original MP3 site shut down. I donated my checks $ to the high school's music class for good KARMA just in case. This site drafted me over 9+ months of emails to get on here. The stuff I listen to [ Gary Moore , Buddy Whittington , Robbie King , SRV , JIMI ,etc. ] make me feel like a beginner for sure. We're at best a mediocre bar band and try to make up for lack of talent with blind enthusiasm ! Thanks for listening & spreading the word for us..John , Jeff , George ..

June 20 2021 Father's Day in America. Hope this note finds you in good health and trying to enjoy life during this viral separation. Here we're starting live music tours by the major artists and local club scene is in full swing. After 2 Moderna doses my wife & I feel pretty safe now. We had a 5 night stay a few miles from Puerto Vallarta Mex. I was a beautiful much needed break from the restrictions we all have been living under. The final night at a Dinner Theater a very good guitarist played through out the dinner. Getting back to the USA required a new long Covid test 2 days before departure. Good to be back and will start practicing guitar and voice to see what happens. THANKS to all of you that listen and share our stuff. It stays free even against the pressure from N1M to monetize my site !!! No
Get out and support local live music where you live and you are from all corners of the globe New Zealand , Australia , British Isles , South America . Italy etc etc ...

Bluto Newsletter for April 2021 !
Welcome new fans & Hi to the rest of you. My last note was to call out the friends of BLUTO that have gone to the problem of SHARING & re-posting our stuff to their friends. This has been
a devastating year for the live music industry. Not a problem for me as this band doesn’t exist live any more. I’m mining the video archives for songs to post for your enjoyment. I own the rights to the songs done on solo 4-track as they were published on the MP3 platform for sale. All others are old Blues tunes , or covers of 60's & 70's music that we enjoyed. Feel free to save via download with the little down arrow below a tune.
Get out of the house if possible and go see some local bands in your country. They need all the help we can give them. Support Live Local Music. I pay for N1M to host our music for the fun of getting fan mail etc. So pay it forward locally for me to help out someone less fortunate . THANK YOU for your time & enjoying a C+ group at best. JOHN
Pic is Bugs & Freddie that I jammed with at different times .

John posting as BLUTO : Wow that was a heck of a non year. I'm 68 now and shocked with the state of the world in general. I'm too old school to look forward to the probable changes that loom on the horizon. I hope you all enjoy old time Rock n Roll and Blues or covers of 1969 - 1979 ish because that's all we have to offer. This is an archive page of a group that had a fun time locally making music. I have a load of videos of gigs that I'm stripping audio from for your enjoyment. Please share for our sake , NO $ is coming in on this page. DOWNLOAD any song you like and share it. Love to you all , have a great next year if possible and help others when you can I beg you for my payment for this page. you are in the TOP % of the world's population . PEACE John
