Philadelphia’s The Blue Method brings together the sounds of old school and douses them with a modern influence of fusion, funk and experimental rock, blending them all into something they like to call “Power Soul”. When on stage, the band strives to make each and every person in the crowd move to the sounds they lay down from deep thumping funk to smooth grooving soul. From high profile festival performances (Green Apple Music Festival in NYC, Jam on the River in Philly etc.) to tour dates spread out across the country (Montana, Michigan, Maine, North Carolina etc.), The Blue Method are quickly becoming one of the most sought after acts in the country.

This 5 piece powerhouse have had the opportunity to share the stage with such acts as Chick Corea, John Legend, Bela Fleck & The Flecktones, The Disco Biscuits, Soulive, The New Deal, The Duo, Oteil Burbridge (of The Allman Brothers Band), Drive By Truckers, Ozomatli, Railroad Earth, Addison Groove Project, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, Leela James and Amos Lee to name a few.

The Blue Method was founded in 2001 by current members Mike Patriarca, Brian Williams and Tom Long. Over the past three years the band has been shaped and molded and has finally evolved into the powerful musical force it is today. The lineup consists of these 5 amazing performers:

Brian Williams – Lead Vocals / Trumpet / Valve Trombone
Mike Patriarca – Guitar
Tom Long – Alto Sax / Baritone Sax
Mark Dappollone – Bass / Backup Vocals
Theron Shelton – Drums

Energized by a return to the studio after their 2004 release “Kill The Music: Volume 1”, a victory in the 2005 Relix JamOff, their addition to The Home Grown Music Network and subsequently being named “Best New Home Grown Band of 2005”, and their intense focus on the mastery of their amazing live performance, the future for The Blue Method looks extremely bright. The band logged over 125 shows in 2005 and continues to be road warriors and expand their fan base even further in 2006. Thanks for reading and enjoy.
