The Spearman Brewers are a Pensacola,
Florida based band that plays Panhandle Blues, a rich gumbo of Pre-War Delta, Piedmont, and Country Blues, with doses of Jazz, Gospel, Hokum, Cajun, and Jug music thrown in for flavor. The Brewers honor the past by bringing it to the present with original compositions based on these time-enduring styles. It's the New Old Stuff, where the bottle hits the string.

If these guys were anymore "rootsy" you could cultivate them! Nothing but acoustic instruments here with a clean, crisp sound that is taken from those old 78's (without the scratches) and transports you to that front porch swing on a lazy afternoon. This 6-track EP is a treat for the senses and is guaranteed repeat listens.

Piedmont-style blues with a distinctive gravel-infused voice, this Pensacola talent will have you asking for a second round. Six songs about drinking, women, and occasionally drinking with women that will hit the spot for fans of traditional roots music.

The roots band combines blues, Americana, jazz and country influences into a rich musical gumbo.
(And you’ve got to love Scott Riggs vocals, which channel Dr. John, Leon Redbone, Tom Waits and a little bit of old Root Boy Slim.) The album gets off
to a smokin’ start with the observant “The Street Where You Got Your Feet,’’ referencing a beloved New Orleans’ street scam, and the heat never lets
up. Really, good stuff.
