About Us

145th Street is a Killer Blues Band! Our music is driven by raw expressive vocals, exceptional harmonica, passionate, blazing guitar, and wailing, honking saxophone with rhythm section that is spirited and tight.

145th Street keeps The Blues personal, current and vital. Whether we are playing a hard driving Chicago shuffle, gettin’ down with a steamy slow blues, or funkin’ it up, we do it with flair, taste and excitement.

High-energy, dynamic, and entertaining, 145th Street knows how to put on a show and get the crowd on their feet and involved.
Stevie B & Marco started the band as an acoustic duo in 2002. Then came a bass player and in short order, a drummer. All of a sudden we were an electric blues band - just the way we like it!

Been through a pile of drummers. One of them, by chance (!), on a break at a gig, introduced us, on a downtown street corner, to Big G who had just come back to town from New Orleans.
