Born and grown in St. Louis, Jeremiah seasoned his style on the Gulf Coast of Texas and then came home to lay down some dirty, rockin' blues. Now 5 albums into his music career, he has created a sound all his own. Nobody does blues like the JJB because it's not just blues. There is no genre for this music, you just have to hear it and feel it to understand.

Fronted by brothers Dick and Dave Pruitt on bass and electric guitars, with Michael Cherry on drums, the Bel Airs play a danceable mix with an authentic but eclectic bluesy-country-soul-and-rock-n-roll sound influenced by the likes of Wilson Picket, Slim Harpo, Howlin' Wolf and Johnny Cash.
Performing together for more than 20 years, the Pruitt brothers' harmony vocal style sets them apart in the contemporary music scene--leading one reviewer to refer to them as the "Everly Brothers of Blues". David's "big guitar" and Dick's howling vocals over soulful, right-on rhythm playing make this trio a powerhouse.

"With a sound built on years of constant performing and songwriting, the band has created a hard-driving, smoothly-polished, soulful record. Pages of Paperwork, Levee Town, exhibits a maturity and sophistication borne of heartbreak and the joy of personal resurgence. Songwriters Hudspeth, Garoutte, and Meade share a convergent vision of the world-at-large and craft their individual tunes in a similar vein. The band chugs along with astonishing energy and focus. Vocally, Levee Town is obviously comfortable performing an ever-widening array of styles. From rocking shuffles to grinding slow blues to North-Mississippi-style rockers to KC swing numbers, Pages Of Paperwork is an exhilarating breath of fresh air and a joy to take in." from their website.

"Front man and Artist Extrordinaire, Brian James hails from Phoenix, Arizona and grew up in Minneapolis. Bored with pop music Brian heard Stevie Ray Vaughn play and life was not the same after that. At the age of 12 he heard Jonny Lang and that really got his attention. Here was a kid with a guitar and for Brian, that was just what he needed to see. From then on, nothing else mattered but the music. He picked up the guitar and the rest is history."
