Blues Defenders Pro Jam w/ special guest Leah Tysse!
Leah has played for audiences from The Monterey Blues Festival to Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee and her songs have been featured on radio across the country and in Europe. Since arriving in California in 1998, Leah has also been a featured soloist at Glide Memorial Church in San Francisco and can be seen singing in the film "The Pursuit of Happyness" with Will Smith, filmed partially at Glide Memorial.
Her first album "Real Good Fire" has met great success, receiving songwriting accolades from Billboard for Best R&B/Blues Song of 2008. Her follow-up album "Love Again", is a soulful blend of infectious grooves and lyrical songwritiing, featuring an all-star line-up of musicians including co/producer Mike Blankenship (Lauryn Hill, Ledisi, Sheila E.).

Sonoma County's local band "The Blues Defenders" are dazzling crowds with their "gritty" roadhouse style of passionate West Coast Blues. Individually, they have played with some of the greats in blues music from Tower of Power, Doobie Brothers, Boz Skaggs, Cold Blood, Johnny Lee, and other legendary greats who shaped the world of blues music. The Blues Defenders can "hold their own" on any stage, and are the West Coast support band for the great Mississippi Blues-man "Johnny Rawls". Jeff Piche's gritty vocals and soulful harmonica front the funky bass sounds of Donny Mederos, Mighty Mike Rippee on drums, David Scott's smooth blues saxophone, and Matt Silva's wailing guitar keep the crowd on their feet all night long.
