July Jubilee

94th AeroSquadron, 16320 Raymer Street, Van Nuys, CA

Hey, Bandwagon, What's up with you this Saturday? Spyder Blue has been having a great time at the 94th on their monthly gigs there. Lots of guests, surprises, food, drink, and, of course, happening music. This month Todd is out of town, but the band has a fantastic sub in Nicolai Strehl. The boys have also invited the talented, charismatic Landon Argabrite to sit in on various tunes throughout the night. It will be rolling and rocking. Come on out, have a beer, relax, and enjoy.

Hey Bandwagon, It's a fest this Saturday night that would make the most outlandish Pilgrim jealous. Spyder Blue is ready to take off from 7 to 10PM at the 94th Aero Squadron in Van Nuys. The boys are in a holiday mood, and the place is perfect for a snappy party - great food, drink, and music. Bring your friends...and your axe. The band will be happy to have our musician friends sit in for a song or two in the late set. See you there!

Roots Demo

The Boys in the Band

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 2015. 

Spyder Blue has played venues and events all over the greater Los Angeles area, including Pershing Square, Dave's Bar, LA Arboretum, Hungry Hunter, The Crest, Universal Bar and Grill, Coffee Junction, NoHo and Tujunga Arts Festivals, 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 would hardly settle for less.  They share a sense of humor and a desire to give the world back as good as they get.
