Spyder Blue is an an original country, rhythm, and blues trio.
Bruce Gaims (guitar & vocals), David Fortin (stand-up and electric bass & vocals), and Todd Szabo (drums, percussion, and vocals) create a dense, energetic, roots flavored Americana sound and heat up houses wherever they go.
Two songs from the band’s first full length CD, “Hard Drive” and a follow-up single, “Open Range” received considerable airplay in Europe via Pharoah Records (Nashville). The group plans to complete work its third CD project by the end of Fall 2012.
Spyder Blue has played venues and events all over the greater Los Angeles area, including Pershing Square, Hungry Hunter, Universal Bar and Grill, Coffee Junction, NoHo Arts Festival, Canyon Cycle Benefit, and many more. The band uses a sizable mailing list to engender a decent throng of loyal fans on a regular basis.
The band’s shows are always exciting. Horns, harps, and other players often sit in. The Spyder Blue repetoire is mostly originals, with sharp, fresh takes on cover tunes. The boys have great fun on stage and always provide an audience with a memorable, professional show.
As a critic for one of L.A.’s leading musical trade papers declared, the band “goes for and achieves a timeless sound.” Bruce, Dave, and Todd are not the type of artists to settle for less. They are able to work hard together because they share a sense of humor and a desire to give the world back as good as it gets.
