About the event
The Blues Reincarnation Project is an American band formed in Newark, Delaware in March 2016. The lineup includes Jeffrey Attakorah (guitar, lead vocals), Ryan Gorman (bass, vocals) and Charlie Greaves (drums, vocals).The band is influenced by three blues sub-genres: Blues Rock, British Blues and New Age. Early HistoryAttakorah writes all songs from a personal observational viewpoint. His prowess on electric Fender belies his age and time in the public eye. Born and raised in Kumasi, Ghana, in West Africa, Attakorah followed his father to the United States when he was twelve years [and ten months]. After immersing himself in American music ranging from the Jonas Brothers to Disney classics, he purchased his first guitar in 2010 at the age of fourteen. A friend saw something in his passion, like all of his music teachers, pushed him to explore the blues and presented him with a used Epiphone Les Paul electric guitar. He practiced constantly to the point of wearing out the frets. He has since graduated to a wireless Fender which he plays with precision, heart, and showmanship. He is also studying traditional Ghanaian music structure as he plays in different predominantly African churches.The original band included Charlie Greaves on Drums, and Ryan Gorman on bass and vocals. Greaves and Gorman met through mutual friends when Greaves joined the punk rock band The Checkered Heroes of which Gorman was the singer. Greaves’ family had moved to Newark from San Diego, CA. Gorman’s family relocated from Arizona to Bear, Delaware when he was age five. Attakorah and Greaves met and became friends in jazz and steel band ensembles. While still in high school, Greaves invited Attakorah to a Checkered Heroes performance where the three met for the first time. 2016: First Performance The first performance of The Blues Reincarnation Project was in March 2016 at the former World Café Live venue in Wilmington, Delaware. The showcase was a popular weekly Gable Music Ventures series known as Wilmo Wednesdays.
