Billy and Steven "Muddy" Roues have been making music together since they were kids growing up in the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn and in rural Pennsylvania. They are all journeymen in the music business, having crossed paths with some of the greats of Blues, Rockabilly, Rock 'n' Roll, Country, Soul, Folk, Jazz and Rhythm and Blues, including, B.B. King, John Lee Hooker, Carl Perkins, Bo Diddley, Howlin' Wolf, Bob Dylan, Ben E. King, Pinetop Perkins, Lonnie Mack, Vassar Clemens, Lenny Kaye, David Bromberg, Pete Seeger, Johnny Johnson, Chuck Berry and many more. The experience of working with those artists that were and still are mentors and idols to them, whether onstage, in the studio, in films and television or in the songwriting process, has left an indelible mark on the music the Roues Brothers are making today. Their History of Blues to Rock series of shows has been gathering an enthusiastic following over the last few years.
