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 ..

Fractured Wrist !

Be more careful than me please. I tried hockey skates on some rough ice earlier this month and did a big butt plant with both hands hitting first. It hyper-extended my left wrist back & bruised my other one big time. Swollen and hurting I had x-rays and an annoyingly LOUD MRI of the left wrist. 1 acute fracture & lots of bruised meat. they put me in a new thermoplastic cast molded tight to my arm. it will stop me from playing standard guitar as it doesn't let me rotate my hand at all. this sill give me time to work on the lap steel with a glass slide. *** i will audition some BLUTO live for more tidbits of tunes. PEACE and thanks for the notes of encouragement ..
