James Neary and the Bevy Blue is a blues rock outfit made up of members from the Northwest Indiana and Southwest Michigan music scenes. Front man James Neary is accompanied on-stage by Sammy Lane Tuthill on lead guitar, Dakota Morgan on the drums, Jeff Topp on the bass guitar, and Sam Que on the saxophone. Together, they create a one of a kind modern take on the blues fused with rock and soul elements drawing from influences like Alabama Shakes, Muse, Pink Floyd, Muddy Waters, and more.
"JNBB [is] one of the best bands to come out of the Midwest in the last decade. A completely unique sound. Can't wait to get them back to the VB stage."
Jeff Harrison, Owner of Vegetable Buddies, South Bend
“James Neary and the Bevy Blue bring an electric energy to the stage. Bluesy and original songs by James as well as well-executed covers that keeps the audience involved and engaged. I know both James and Sam Tuthill (lead guitar) as individual musicians, and together they have a synergistic chemistry, that together with their associates, offer a powerful presence. Looking forward to having them back at the Acorn Theater"
Ron Spears, Chair-Board of Directors, Acorn Theater”
"What you've done is a classic style with a sense of freshness and energy. The recording is fantastic, the performance is great. I think you've cast the net to hook a very wide audience with it."

"...It is a difficult task to accurately capture and then translate the sonic accomplishment this band brought to be recorded... Rip it to your preferred media playing methods and play it over and over until James Neary And The Bevy Blue blesses its following with their first full length album."
Adam Raschka, UpState
"James’ vocals are exemplary, showcasing control and showing us his power on some of his most expressive lines... James Neary & the Bevy Blue is at the top of skill totem pole when it comes to musicianship."
