Pat Herlehy A multi-talented performer has that kind of voice that is rough and melodic. Simultaneously sliding over his guitar which references and indexes Duane Allman, Johnny Winter and Robin Ford, but all in good time. Born and raised in Chicago, Pat grew up hitting all the jams at a young age in Chicago, while standing in line waiting to play guitar at a local jam, he noticed that horn players went right to the front of the line and yes , he decided to master the Sax too, no more waiting in line , Then moving on to New York City where he continued playing with various artists, Pat moved to the Boston area, in 1989 and started rippin' up road houses and juke joints all over New England.
In 1991 Pat got together with Tom Flynn and and formed Big Boy Guitar & the Drive by Bloozin .Blazing a trail up to 1999 releasing one cd that still sells well today.
In 2002 Pat teamed up with Mighty Sam McClain and went on to play sold out European tours for the next 10 years culminating with two Blues Foundation nominations in 2013 for Best song and best blues album.
