Jay Stollman Bio

 The Jay Stollman Band“Sometimes when you go to see live music you get lucky and discover an opening band that does more than just warm the stage.  Such was the case at the legendary B.B. King’s while getting ready for The Johnny Winter Band.  Jay Stollman Blues Band blazed the trail with soulful blues and original tunes that had me looking around for his merchandise table.  Engaging stage presence coupled with a unique voice that grabs you as tight as Jay grabs his microphone neither let’s go and I am very much looking forward to his CD coming out this Fall!”   —–Ali Kaufman – (Morning  Mojo WCNI 90.9FM & Mystic Blues Festival)

“Jay has a rare gift where his soul and passion for the blues become one very personal genre, unlike most with whom I’ve worked. It’s edgy yet polished; raunchy, yet very professional.  It’s always a pleasure to invite him onstage with me when we find each other in the same town. —–Jose Feliciano – (8 time Grammy Award Winning Artist)

“One of today’s most soulful and powerful blues singers. The real deal!” —–Johnny Winter

“You are the PERFECT guy to do this!” —–Edgar Winter – (after the Johnny Winter Remembrance Show at Buddy Guy’s Legends, Chicago)

“You sing your ass off! I don’t often hear “real” singers on the blues scene these days. It’s normally dudes (like me) who mainly play guitar and do some singing too. —–Matt Schofield (3-Time British Blues Awards Guitarist Of The Year & British Blues Awards Hall of Fame)
