Homemade Jamz Blues Band Youngest Blues Band in America...the trifecta of blues! Ryan Perry/18 yrs old, Kyle Perry/16yrs old, Taya Perry/12yrs old “In my 82 years, I’ve never seen something musically…so remarkable. These young kids have got energy, talent and do the blues proud with their own flavor. I believe they’ve got a GREAT future ahead.” - B.B. King HOMEMADE JAMZ BLUES BAND got its start in Baumholder, Germany, when military dad Renaud Perry came home with a Stratocaster replica (guitar) and young Ryan, 8, discovered it. A week later, Ryan composed a short instrumental tune and performed it at his school’s talent show. By the time the family returned to Tupelo, Mississippi, Ryan had found his passion…music. After listening to B.B. King, Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan then trying his best to emulate them Ryan emerged a blues artist with skyrocketing talent. Two years later, little brother Kyle, 9, wanted in on the action. After first trying piano, Kyle settled in on the bass learning for himself the nuances of the instrument and its role in the blues sound. Soon he was out on the concert circuit performing with his brother. Not long afterwards seven-year-old Taya locked in on the blues vibe. Already playing tambouring, Taya situated herself on the stool behind a drum set and in two months was holding down the beats behind her big brothers Ryan and Kyle. Ryan’s gruff vocals, visceral stinging guitar licks, Kyle’s solid rumble and Taya’s cool-bare-footed stomp have electrified millions around the world. Making HOMEMADE JAMZ BLUES BAND “a trifecta” in the blues world! The HOMEMADE JAMZ BLUES BAND has been featured in all major media: NPR, PBS, CBS Sunday Morning, NBC Today’s Show, BET, internationally distributed blues magazines and of course in local papers everywhere they go. The young Band performs all over the US, Canada, & Europe; as well as the Caribbean Islands and on the Legendary Blues Cruise. In 2006, the HOMEMADE JAMZ BLUES BAND won the 3rd Annual MS Delta Blues Society of Indianola’s Blues Challenge, and became the youngest band to compete in the International Blues Challenge, in 2007. Out of 93 bands, Homemade Jamz took 2nd place, their first time in a major competition. And have gone on to be nominated for the “Best New Artist Debut,” Blues Music Award, 2009; and to win the Jus’ BMA “Band or Combo of the Year,” in 2010. Giving them the significant accomplishment of being the youngest blues band, in history to be nominated for these, or any major blues award…that’s why they are now considered the “Trifecta of the Blues World.” The HOMEMADE JAMZ BLUES BAND performs the blues with the confidence of knowing their Mississippi history, firsthand, redirecting the love, hard times, betrayal and strife into their music. How do they do it? They “connect” with the ancestral sounds…it are hardwired within them. They know the blues…it comes naturally from their souls. www.hmjamzbluesband.com www.myspace.com/homemadejamzbluesband HOMEMADE JAMZ BLUESBAND OVERVIEW ABOUT US The HOMEMADE JAMZ BLUES BAND is an award-winning internationally acclaimed blues band composed of three siblings from Tupelo, Mississippi.
