Rudy & the Bluefish started out in 1998 in an ongoing effort to "keep the blues alive," and have continued to deliver a potent dose of blues with a feelin', rhythm & blues, soul, funk, and blues rock at every performance ever since. There are four seasoned musicians in the band’s current core line-up: Van “The Man” on trumpet, flugelhorn, and vocals; Tom EB ("Electric Bluesman") on vocals, guitar and harp; Ragan on drums and vocals; and Spencer on bass and vocals. Donnie "Schatt" Schattenberg regularly appears with the band, on sax, flute & vocals, for engagements at larger venues. Each of the members of the group has been performing and recording various musical styles for 30 years or more. Collectively, they've appeared in a wide variety of venues in most major cities throughout the United States and Europe.
Some members of the Bluefish also perform with the following bands: "The Blue Dominos," "Blues in the Attic," "HoBoJa," "The Bluefish Trio," "Stevie D & Tom EB," and "The Stevie D & Tom EB Trio." You can find information about these bands below on this page, via Rudy's schedule link, and on Rudy's Facebook page.
