Although Johnny B and Rattlesnake Shake is new to the Cincinnati Blues scene, this 3-piece Blues band’s members are all long-time musicians.
John Bays (Johnny B) favors the electric Blues artists of today and yesterday. He purchased his first guitar at a dime store when he was 12 years old. He has written several original Blues, and has a keen sense of merging great Blues lyrics with dynamic Blues riffs and chords.
Art Washburn was born in Washington D.C. He started playing drums when he was 12 years old as well. Over the years, Art has given back by teaching drumming fundamentals to young people. He loves the Blues and his strong drumming talent is a perfect fit for Rattlesnake Shake.
