Stuey Blue picked up the horn at ten and by fifteen was performing every weekend with his band Sunrise. He graduated Wesleyan University, Middletown Ct. with a B.A. in music and then went on the road with the Otrabanda Theatrical Revue which performed shows in major cities such as New Orleans, Baton Rouge, St Louis, Memphis, and N.Y.C as well as in small towns along the Mississippi river. The revue was featured in an hour long PBS documentary as well as numerous TV spots. After the tour he settled in N.Y.C. performing with numerous local bands and doing session work on CD’s and for TV and film. He formed his own band the Screamin Honkers which were quickly hailed the “best bar band in town(N.Y.C)” by the Village Voice. They headlined at major clubs like Studio 54, The Stone Pony, The Lone Star Café, and The 930 club and colleges like StonyBrook, Univ. Of Richmond, and Queens College performing their original compositions. Their video aired nationally on ABC’s Hot Tracks, HBO, and CNN. They also appeared in the major motion picture “Ishtar”. The band averaged 150 shows a year playing extensively in N.Y.C. and the Northeast states for many years. Their self-released albums sold well. Stuey’s exciting live shows, which featured him blowing his sax while dancing through the audience, dropping to his knees on the beat, jumping on tables and bars, playing on his back rocking and kicking his feet while wailing and honking to a jump beat, brought audiences to a frenzy.
After many years in N.Y.C., Stuey Blue moved to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida where he began playing with numerous local bands as well as his own. He has played at major festivals like Sunfest, Riverwalk Blues Festival, and the South Florida Blues Society sponsored Blues Diva’s of South Florida concert, which will be releasing a live CD in 2007. He can currently be seen at local venues in the South Florida area. Check out his website at StueyBlue.com.
