Blue Max is a San Francisco original rock n' roll band, whose music combines elements of pop, blues and alternative rock. Think Wilco, with a blues base, or Dave Matthews plus distortion. Their debut CD - Cannonball - is a set of intricate, tight pop songs with blazing guitar and piano solos, well crafted lyrics and rich, textured vocals. Blue Max formed in 1999 and now performs regularly in the SF Bay Area. Live the band enjoys stretching out a bit with improvisational jamming, and atmospheric instrumentals. Craig Hubbard sings and plays acoustic guitar, Vince Bohner and Paul Stasi play electric guitar, Flip Casey is on the keyboards and the beat is held down by Dan Shafer on drums and D-Mo on the bass.
