In the 1980s, Leroy Airmaster was the dominant blues band in a vibrant live blues music scene in southeastern Wisconsin. They performed constantly, and released 4 well received recordings. They received numerous WAMI awards for best blues group.
The members of the most popular version of the group reformed in 2010 and continue to perform their unique blend of blues jazz and rock music. Not content to rehash classic blues licks, Steve Cohen (harmonica, vocals) and Bill Stone’ s(guitar, vocals) solo styles rely heavily on a jazz approach, but never lose the gutsy blues framework that made the band so popular. With original powerhouse drummer Vodie Rhinehart and rock solid bassist Kurt Koenig, Leroy continues to satisfy audiences with their musical prowess, tasteful song selections and dynamic delivery.
