Named after exemplary blues artist "Louie Bluie" (aka Howard Armstrong), The Louie Bluies return to Sunnylands with an extremely eclectic catalogue of songs from blues to ragtime, country to jazz, and a little bit of jam music to round it out. The Bluies are composed of Joey Latimer, Marshall Hawkins, and Don Reed.
