21st Century Blues

Today in 21st century, many of the current crop of blues acts are polyester suited, retro acts content with reliving the classic sounds of the 1950's. However, a new breed of young and upcoming Blues artists are emerging from the Chicagoland area. One such artist, Tre' has stepped out as the best of the lot. He possesses spectacular vocal performances and an outstanding guitar ability flaming on the heels of such greats as Albert King, Little Milton, Albert Collins and Jimi Hendrix. Tre' learned to play the guitar at the tender age of five from watching his father, L.V. Banks. He worked his first professional Blues gig in 1974. Since then, he has paid his dues learning from some of the best in the business, such as Little Milton, Albert King, Albert Collins, Otis Clay, Bobby Rush, Koko Taylor, Tyrone Davis, the Chi-Lites and many others. His goal for the Blues and African American culture, as it stands for the heritage and the last truly creative musical experience that has overcome extinction and re-emerged, is to capture a brand new audience for its guaranteed existence into the next millenium.
