The Bell Bottom Blues was formed in May 2007, but each member's passion to create music and love for the great Eric Clapton actually began some 35 years ago. Because of this passion, love and talent of each member it wasn't long before the band was ready to perform for live audiences.
Through the vocals and lead guitar of Al Caprara, slide, rhythm & lead guitar of John Kurdyla, funky bass of Eric Collier and Beats of Lou Caprara, the band has captured the likeness of Eric Clapton and his bands from the early psychedelic days of Cream through his classic hits of his solo career.
Straight Shooter understand the importance of the sound, the feel, and the soul of Bad Company & love playing the songs which reflects in their performance time & time again. Fronted by Billy Spanton, lead singer, lead guitarist & piano, his soulful singing and smokin' guitar playing continues to amaze audiences. Nick Alfieri on rhythm guitar & back-up vocals rounds out the rhythm section while the groove is laid down by Rizz on bass. The band is driven by the thunderous drumming of Lima, whose "in the pocket style keeps the band in pace & on track at all times.
Covering all the hits & many rarities, pleasing the average & certainly the die-hard Bad Co. fans, this band is not to be missed. They literally re-create the experience & most importantly the sound of one of the best rock bands of all time!
