Blues On The Loose is just that. Assembled of 5 veteran working musicians from Southcentral Pennsylvania who chose to develop their blues backgrounds and give back by preserving and contributing to the legacy of blues music. Reverent ballads, swing, hokum and even a little blues rock infect our delivery, be it an original song or a re-crafted traditional. BOTL embraces a style that encompasses a cross section of blues music from early 20th century  through today. 

Popular folk music of the deep south, delta, Texas and following the migration north to Chicago and points nationwide.   America's music.    

Frontman Lewy Dean, sings and blows a little harp;   Keyboardist, Tom Lowry;

Guitarist, Jay McElroy;   Bassist, Doug Porter and   Percussionist, Gordon Keeney

make up this exciting band that look to the future of the blues while honoring it's past.

We are proud members of and contributors to the Blues Society of Central Pennsylvania,  Steel City Blues Society and  The Billtown Blues Association, Williamsport, Pa.
