Back Porch Blues

When James Paolello and Josh Gone start playing, they transport you to another time, another realm.

You bob your head, shake off the dust, and see yourself in a happy, laidback town among longtime friends.

Band Members

  • James Paolello (guitar, slide guitar, vocals)
  • Josh Gone (bass)
  • Andy Costa (drums)

Paolello & Gone started collaborating three years ago. Their friendly brand of blues features the songwriting talents of James on vocals, acoustic and slide guitar, and Josh on bass guitar. Andy Costa sometimes joins them on drums. And every now and then, they invite Phil Papotnik and Dave VanAmburg  to join them.

Unique Blues Styles

Steady and regular performance through out the region has produced a refined blues show that can accommodate a variety of venues, from club stages to more intimate scenes like wineries and breweries.

Self described as back porch blues, they draw on the influence of the great founders of Delta and Country blues, and perform a variety of original and arranged songs.

Take upbeat, foot stomping grooves as a cornerstone, add in the Americana flare of rust belt living, grit and determination, and you'll find a style of blues that's respectful yet authentic to itself.
