Texas is known for many things, especially when it comes to music. However, one of the Lone Star State’s most precious resources is blues. From ZZ Top to Johnny Winter, Texas bluesmen feature prominently throughout the history of blues. While he may not be as well-known as other Texas bluesmen, Wes Jeans’ monstrous guitar sound is as mighty as the greats that have come before him.
Jeans’ string magic has earned him recognition from Guitar Player Magazine as well as opening spots for the late B.B. King, Buddy Guy and Gov’t Mule.
Jeans took a break from his music career to concentrate on fatherhood, but two years ago broke his hiatus and once again picked up the guitar. Since then, he’s been visiting fans in familiar cities such as Mobile.
Even though The Listening Room of Mobile is an intimate environment, Jeans will show the crowd no mercy, with a guitar style conjuring the spirit of Stevie Ray Vaughan.
