. “The Paul Schofield Blues Band”, or "The Lefty Paul Trio", consists of Paul Schofield, aka, Thee" Fabulous" Lefty" on guitar,, and the incredible Mario Jean Gilles on drums, and too many great bassists to mention… although our favorite one being Jerome Robinson.
Paul, or “Lefty” as he is known among his musical peers, and often called "The Real Deal" is without a doubt one of the best players on the planet. A true musical revelation you won’t soon forget. Paul turns heads everywhere he goes with his searing Blues licks and also with his unorthodox playing technique, and can pull out any style of classic guitar from Rockabilly to Jazz and beyond.
Paul has been playing on the road since he was 17, and paid countless dues bangin’ the Blues from Chicago to Portland and back. He has played in countless venues. In pursuit of the Ultimate Blues Band, Paul has found it in Mario, a seasoned professional with many years of performing, touring, and recording experience and forms the perfect catalyst and complement to Paul's guitar. Add that to the fact that the Paul Schofield Blues Band is the only area band that is listed as The Paul Schofield Blues Project, on the National List of Blues Recording artists along side the likes of B.B.King, Percy Sledge and Keb Mo. Take a visit to their website www.paulschofieldband.com.
Together they present themselves as a musical force to be reckoned with within the Blues world!
