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.

  • Lola's Toy Drive @ the Northside Tavern Funky Bluester was very honored to participate in Lola's Toy Drive at the Northside Tavern. It was our first time on the stage at the Northside Tavern and was a set to remember. Mr. Eddie Tigner and Lola joined us on stage for several numbers. The crowd was hot and so were the blues!
