Stories, humor and original blues tunes. The Bobby Evans Blues Band kicks it up and keeps it entertaining!



ALEX WILSON grew up in a family of talented musicians.
Alex’s grandmother, Rosa Saviano was a renowned professional jazz singer in Chicago in the 1940’s and 50’s. Tom Wilson, Alex’s father, is a multi-faceted musician who has had the distinct pleasure of accompanying nearly every blues performer to pass through the Milwaukee/Chicago music scene in the last thirty years. A versatile musician, Alex effortlessly switches between genres. He plays everything from sweet Beale Street blues to West coast swing. From hard Texas grinders to stone cold Chicago grooves with a feeling that’s said to be timeless. Alex’s style and tasty originals matched with his undeniable stage presence and unmistakable guitar style will drive you to the dance floor.



A good place to start is with the roots. Bluegrass music is where Donnie got his first taste of the limelight at a young and impressionable age. Playing music from Jimmy Martin, Bill Monroe to New Grass Revival and Tony Rice. After years of searching and playing different music clubs and festivals he discovered the raw primitiveness of the Blues and new immediately that he had found what he was searching for all along. Now after 30 plus years of delivering blistering blues licks and rich soulful vocals he is still kicking it up at clubs and festivals today and no plans on stopping any time soon. The debut album “Guitar Slinger” was a success for a freshman attempt and the follow up album will be filled with even more surprises.

Copper Box, one of WI’s favorites, that brings melodic folk rock originals and covers featuring the multi instrumentalists, Danny & Michelle Jerabek. Copper Box is a genre-bending celebration of fusion roots rock that channels the rowdy communal feel of a small-town party with their refreshing, gutsy, americana sound of artists like the legendary Esteban Jordan (the Jimi Hendrix of the accordion), Doug Sahm, Clifton Chenier, Los Lobos, and CCR…a must see!
