Blues Union is a soulful groove machine fronted by B-3 Organ and vocalist, John Carswell and drummer Jud Sherwood. The two have been performing throughout the Pacific Northwest since 1998 laying down the groove at festivals, in clubs, and other outdoor venues.
Carswell loves a good time, and he loves to make you smile doing what he does best. In 2001 Carswell and Sherwood released their debut album, Blues By Two: Room with a View, on The Jazz Project Label. A follow-up recording, Blues Union: Goin’ Down Slow, was released in 2007 and features the instrumentation before you today.
Joining Sherwood and Carswell on the festival stage are saxophonist Josh Cook and guitarist Brian Cunningham, two Northwest musicians who perform regularly as sidemen and leaders of their own groups.
Their latest CD, The Man, was recorded at Brian Cunningham’s Sharp Nine Studios in 2014.
