The Shane Pruitt Band has been together as a band for two years, but has over 100 years of playing experience between the three members. Shane Pruitt (guitar/vocals)has been playing the southeast for 15 years, despite his young age of 31. He has played in numerous bands and has opened shows for or played with artists such as Johnny Winter, Junior Brown, Coco Montoya, Porter, Batiste and Stoltz and many others. Shane''s guitar style evokes the intensity of Buddy Guy, Albert Collins, Freddie King and Duane Allman. He also generates the energy and spirit of a famous southern guitar player by the name of Toy Caldwell, from the original Marshall Tucker Band. Jim Peterman (organ/vocals) was an original member of the Steve Miller Band back in 1967. He played on their first two albums, before pursuing other career goals. He spent many years playing organ with gospel groups, which contributes to his soulful, church-like playing. It is a great compliment to Shane''s soulful, heartfelt guitar playing. Bill Fletcher (drums/vocals) rounds out the band''s sound with an old school style that harkens back to the in-the-pocket playing of drummers like Roger Hawkins and Al Jackson, Jr. Bill has spent many years playing in the southeast with various blues and soul bands, including Cocktail Frank and with blues singer Robin Rogers.
