The Blues Disciples

The Blues Disciples have been bringing their Blues to the people of the  local clubs in the Milwaukee area and the Midwest region since 1990.  Founded by "Barefoot" Jimmy Schwarz with  the intent of remaining true to the influences of the Chicago electric  blues era of the '50's and 60's. Influenced initially by the likes of  Little Walter, and Muddy Waters, and then directly by Wisconsin Blues  greats Jim Liban and Billy Flynn they forged a sound and band that rose  to the top of the Milwaukee Blues scene. Their years of powerful shows  every week at Milwaukee Blues fixture, The Up & Under, turned a  whole new generation on to the Blues genre. Many years and changes have  kept their music fresh, and relevant, while still remaining true to  their Blues roots.
