Tinsley Ellis:
Tinsley Ellis wears his Southern roots proudly. Born in Atlanta in 1957, he grew up in southern Florida and first played guitar at age eight. He found the blues through the back door of British Invasion bands like The Yardbirds, The Animals, Cream, and The Rolling Stones. He especially loved the Kings — Freddie, B.B. and Albert. His love for the blues solidified when he was 14. At a B.B. King performance, Tinsley sat mesmerized in the front row. When B.B. broke a string on Lucille, he changed it without missing a beat, and handed the broken string to Ellis. Tinsley’s fate was sealed; he had to become a blues guitarist. And yes, he still has that string. Averaging over 150 live shows a year, Ellis has played in all 50 states, as well as Canada, Europe, Australia and South America. Whether he’s out with his own band or sharing stages with major artists like Buddy Guy, The Allman Brothers, Gov’t Mule or Widespread Panic, he always digs deep and plays, as Guitar Player says, “...as if his life depended on it.” Ellis' most recent tour with Blues At The Crossroads II: Muddy & The Wolf with the Fabulous Thunderbirds featuring Kim Wilson, James Cotton, Jody Williams and Bob Margolin was by all accounts one of the best shows of 2013.
YONIC: After its first performance at The Green House in Fredonia, N.Y., psychedelic blues, reggae and funk band Yonic has become a prominent feature in the Fredonia music scene. Beginning as a three-piece band with original members Sean Patrick, Randy Dean and Sam Pavlovich, original songs, such as "Man on a Plane" and "Gangsta' Life," were popularized. In need of a richer sound, Yonic added keys and organ player Ryan Schindler to the group. Following a year of playing the Fredonia circuit, at venues like BJ's, The Jungle, Willow Creek Winery and others, Yonic took a summer break due to the bassist, Randy Dean, leaving the group to pursue other ventures. After coming back to Fredonia, Ryan Schindler switched to the bass, returning Yonic to their familiar three-piece form. Sam Pavlovich was replaced by Brian McMahon, as the drummer, in late September of 2014.
