The Schoolboys Trio...
The 'Boys have been playing classic, Southern and blues rock since about 1998 from one end of the Cape Fear to the other. The SBoys Trio is a slightly smaller version of the original band to fit onto waterfront decks, pubs and backyards. Grey around the edges but young at heart, the Schoolboys Trio continues amazing their students who are impressed that "Hey, you guys don't suck."
Here's the band line-up:
Rick Olsen sings lead and plays keyboard and harmonica. His blues-tinged voice really shines with the band's covers of artists like Joe Cocker and Marc Broussard.
Bill Bolduc plays lead guitar and sings with the sincere appeal of rock's old souls. A devoted student of six-string TRUTH, Bill nails the sweet spots and blue notes with smooth versatility and joy while adding a bit of get-down funk to the mix. His eclectic tastes run widely, embracing everything from Stealers Wheel to the Allman Bros., from Chuck Berry to Springsteen. Link to Bill's Faculty Webpage.
James Hunt has provided the beat for the 'Boys since the earliest days. "Adaptable" best describes James' style as he applies his steady beats and fun digressions to everything from '60s ballads to The Beatles to Tom Petty. King of the "arena-ending" James brings vigor and fire to the back beat.
