The Blues Maneuver band has been one of the Catskill region's premier special event bands for more than a decade, performing at clubs, concerts, music festivals, weddings, ski lodges, parties, corporate events, reunions and other special occasions from Massachusetts to North Carolina, Cooperstown to New York City.
Based in the heart of the Catskills, the seven-piece band combines top-notch musicianship, impeccable vocal harmonies and a mighty horn section. The Blues Maneuver band has an eclectic repertoire to suit nearly any musical taste, with tunes from today to the 1940s, including a vast selection of Motown, classic R&B, oldies and swing. The band brings an elegant look to the stage, with Art Deco-style music stands and sharp costumes.
The band features front man/vocalist/trombonist David (Luther) Krajicek; music director Jesse (Guitar King) Cohen on lead guitar and alto saxophone; Rebecca Harrington, a talented vocalist who leads the band's Chicken Shack horn section, on tenor sax, flute and trumpet; vocalist John Heney on bass; vocalist/percussionist John Kincheloe; Ira McIntosh, another vocalist who plays guitar and mandolin, and Kristina Johnson, a fabulous soloist, on various saxophones.
The Blues Maneuver recently released its second recording for Five-Star Entertainment, "Bona Fide Flip Side Rhythm & Blues," which features a number of great B-side R&B tunes.
