Southern California has lost two great men of the blues with their passing in May of 2022. Their families need the support of the community now. There is a GoFundMe to assist the family of Byl Carruthers with his wife’s medical expenses and to support their son Jazz.

There is also a GoFundMe for Tom’s family…please contribute.



The Benefit will feature a dance floor, beverages and food!

The Bands:

The Paradise Kings

The Paradise Kings play a variety of cover and original material that includes rock, blues, and a few swing tunes that will make you want to dance!

The Santa Barbara based band has been performing for many years with the lineup of Erika Wszulkowski on lead vocals, Bob Gross on bass/vocals, Jeff Gring on guitar and George Lambert on drums/vocals, and are looking forward to releasing their second studio album later this year or early next year.

East Valley Road

Returning from a four year hiatus, East Valley Road has come together to honor the lives of Tom Murray and Byl Carruthers. Brandi Lentini, Cameron Nichoson, Fabio Rodriguez, and Maxton Hunter knocked Santa Barbara off its feet with their late set at the Santa Barbara Blues Society’s IBC competition at the Carriage Museum in 2017 and again in 2018 opening for Sugaray Rayford at Carrillo Rec. Center. The former of these shows earned them a spot at the 2018 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee representing Santa Barbara’s next generation of Blues musicians and the latter cemented their presence in Santa Barbara’s music scene. Taking their name from the legendary California State Route 192 that runs from Carpinteria to Santa Barbara, these four talented musicians blend elements of Stax and Motown with Texas and Chicago Blues into a modern performance full of energy and soul reminiscent of Etta James, Freddie King, and Gary Clark Jr.

Rent Party Blues Band

Based in Santa Barbara, Rent Party Blues Band hopes to evoke the Juke Joint spirit of letting loose and gettin’ down.
