Sunny Lowdown plays a raw and rhythmic blues that was burned into him on his first professional gig playing guitar behind John Lee Hooker. Since then he has worked with such blues greats as R. L. Burnside, Pinetop Perkins, Otis Rush, and Jimmy Rogers, and his own band has shared stages with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robert Cray and Greg Allman. Sunny’s latest CD “The Blues Volume Low” has received rave reviews internationally, and was named “Blues CD Of The Year” by Spokane Public Radio. The Ice Cream Men are Sunny Keys (Paul Nadeau), Sunny Bottom (Luke Houk), and Sunny Tubs (Ben Carr).
