WWL's Esplanade in the Shade Stage
The Bottoms Up Blues Gang is a St. Louis Acoustic Blues Duo featuring vocalist Kari Liston and guitarist Jeremy Segel-Moss. The BUBG play a unique blend of originals and covers in the styles of Delta Blues, R & B, Soul, Jazz, and Blues influenced Rock & Roll. …. In the last seven years The Bottoms Up Blues Gang has averaged 275 shows a year, released 3 albums, been given multiple awards for Best Blues Band, shared a bill with Chuck Berry, Robert Earl Keen, Bennie Smith, Debbie Davies, Kenny Wayne Shepard, Mofro, Parliament Funkadelic, Robert Randolf and the Family Band as well as a host of St. Louis talent. …. For a duo, The Bottoms Up Blues Gang has a big sound. Kari’s powerfully sultry voice rings with soul intention while Jeremy holds down the groove covering bass lines and melody on his acoustic guitar. In the last year, Kari has also implemented several percussion instruments and an electric kazoo! while Jeremy has grown to be a solid harmonica player and singer. …. The BUBG play with an ever-changing line up when performing in St. Louis. On any given night the band might include a stand up bass player, additional guitar, harmonica, piano, drums or all of the above. And if The BUBG isn’t playing at one of their own gigs, theres a good chance they’ll be out jammin with fellow St. Louis musicians.
