$500 - $5000 per event
The Richard Wilkins Blues Band is shaking up the Gorge's live music scene. Blues is the 1st stop for RWBB, with detours into boogie-woogie, soulful ballads, and vintage blues-rock. Our music is upbeat and great for dancing. Our experienced, journeymen musicians and soloists support the smoky male and female vocals. We have a loyal following of dancers and locals that enjoy our performances. We can gear our sets to traditional blues performances, weddings or just about anything you want.

Richard Wilkins brings a long history of playing the blues and touring. A multi-instrumentalist, he plays bass, piano and guitar. But make no mistake, this is a Saxophone band, and Richard leads the way with his solid lead vocals and smoking sax solos.

Kay Floria adds the classic boogie-woogie piano pulse, jangle and flair. Her bouncy, melodic instrumentals and pure, soulful voice perfectly complement and fill out the band's sound.

Drummer Steve Alford is a veteran percussionist and drives the band's tempo and groove. He provides the flourishes, stops and cadence changes that define the unique style and sound of jump-blues.

Darren Rogers expresses his long and broad musical experience on the Fender Bass. He lays down the rock-solid bottom end that supports the inspiration and message of the blues.

On guitar, Patrick Haley mixes the structure of old time blues scales, bottleneck slide, progressive rhythm techniques, and spicy lead riffs to intensify the band's delivery.
