Funky Bluester
Gritty, Grinding, and Swinging House Rockin'

Welcome to the home of Funky Bluester! Thanks for taking the time to check us out!

Formed in the spring of 2011, Funky Bluester has been earning a reputation as a must-see live act in Atlanta and around the southeast. Drawing from influences in blues, jazz and R&B, the trio pumps out gritty, grinding, and swinging blues that hearken back to the alleys of Chicago and the roadhouses of Texas.

Powerful, stinging guitar and vocals by D.L. Peterson combined with the booming bass of Russell Boyer and the metronome funk of the mighty Myles Mattison make Funky Bluester a force to be reckoned with.

  • The Walton Derby-5/2 We'll be the entertainment at this year's Walton Derby on Saturday May 2nd at the Big Red Barn at Jackson Farm.The Walton Derby is a fun-filled event where ladies wear their colorful hats and dresses, men wear their summer ties and jackets to enjoy an evening of virtual horse racing & betting (play money, of course), great music, delicious food and beverages, just a good ole' good time with 200-300 of your neighbors!The event is essentially a fundraiser for the Walton County Chamber of Commerce. But, it's really much more than that. The Walton Derby is the "go to" event in Walton County, an event like none other.
