Hard Rocking Blues Guitarist Wes Jeans Releases New 'Live At Music City Texas' CD

Hard rocking blues guitarist Wes Jeans has just released a new live album 'Wes Jeans Live At Music City' October 13th via Texas Music Records.

Recorded on January 17th, 2009 at Music City Texas Theater in Linden, Texas, the album includes guest appearances by guitarist Lance Lopez and vocalist/guitarist Jason Helms of The Jason Helms Band.

Hailing from the small East Texas town of Marshall, influenced by the hard edged blues rock of Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Winter and ZZ Top, throughout his career the 28 year old Jeans has had the honor of meeting and sharing the stage with many musical greats such as B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Jimmie Vaughan, Billy Gibbons, Dick Dale, Eric Johnson, Hubert Sumlin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Robert Cray, Joe Bonamassa, Indigenous, Lance Lopez, Chris Duarte, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd, just to name a few.

After a October 2003 show opening for B.B. King in Shreveport, Louisiana, Wes' performance received a standing ovation and B.B. asked the guitarist onto his bus where he told him "Son, you keep your head on straight, you are going places."

In 2004, the readers of Guitar Player Magazine voted Jeans number three among the Young Gun blues guitar players alongside Jonny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

The live album is the fourth release for the guitarist, following the critically acclaimed studio albums 'Wes Jeans' (2000) and 'Forest Of The Pine (2006). A live DVD 'The Wes Jeans Band Live At Juanita's Ballroom' was released in 2005.
