The Blood Stones Band
The Blood Stones consist of front man and guitar wiz Tommy Blood, whose experiences in New Orleans and New York led him to share the limelight with a variety of other popular Milwaukee artists; keyboard player Brian Huckstep, who pumps soul into the Blood Stones experience with award winning composition skills; bass player and Windy City native Paul Gildersleeve, who inherited a splash of Bootsy Collins crossed with Geddy Lee; and Bob Dolle, who grounds the ensemble with his nuanced tribal beats.
The Blood Stones rocked the Potawatomi Stage at Summerfest 2008, the world's largest music festival. The life-blood of their music flows from a pool of classic influences including Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Phish, Robert Johnson, ZZ Top, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, along with an ever increasing supply of originals. Together they bring the true spirit of rock and roll, leaving their hearts onstage in the process.
