Chisel Brothers


This is one of the best-known blues bands in the city, and for good reason; they've been around in one incarnation or another for close to 20 years and have won considerable local acclaim recognizing their considerable talent. With Roscoe on guitar and Thornetta Davis on vocals, it would require serious effort to screw up the sound. Although criticized by some blues fans for being too much rock and too little blues-a criticism which, in all honesty, is true on any given night-it would be impossible to list the city's top blues band without giving them their due.
