"We electrified our delta blues just like Muddy and Howlin' Wolf did in the '40s, when they went up to Chicago," says Ramona-based Baja Blues Boys. The group began as an acoustic blues duo featuring Tim Atkins (guitar) and Andre Perreault (harmonica). They expanded in 2005 to a full band with Hank Hiskes on standup bass, Dave Finley on drums, and Bud Mayhew on guitar.
Their album Gone Away, Someday (Bonesandwich Music) was released in 2009.
