"Extremely talented group. Lead guitar, bass, harmonica are all top tier musicians. I've seen the band perform with 2-3 different drummers and they've all been great. Their shows are always so interactive and fun and the music appeals to multiple generations."

"Started out just seeing Brett and Dave playing at the Thursday Night Blues Jam, was blown away. Have seen the band perform twice recently and must say I was blown away again. Their interaction with their fans is awesome. Always gracious and glad to see you. Best of the best in Tallahassee!"

"I have been one of the bartenders at the world famous Bradfordville Blues Club for better than 15 years, and it’s always a treat when these guys blow in to the old jook joint. They always pack the house and give top shelf performances every time. Their playlist is good, and each of the guys are singularly talented. Collectively, they put out a nice tight sound that’s hard to beat. If you even think you like the blues, you owe it yourself to go see these guys!"
Jim Barnes
Bartender at BBC
"As owner of a Sound company we met the band a few years ago, working with bands for over 40 years these guys rock, First Class and are so of the nicest players you’ll ever meet. If you’ve not heard them perform go, I promise you will be blown away! Bo Drummond and I Patrick Drummond Sr. Highly Endorse this great Band. Studio D Music & Sound was honored to handle sound for them!"

"I have been a professional musician for over 60 years. During this time I have met and performed with countless musicians in venues all across this country. I travel on the road a great deal and my travels hook me up with some awesome players. Coming to Tallahassee is always a treat because I get to jam with Brett and Dave. I've seen them play at the Moon, countless park gatherings, Bradfordville Blues Club and businesses indoor and outdoor. They get it. They are there to entertain the crowd and work for the venue that hired them. They always dress for the part. Their music is well performed and the crowd loves them. I try to see them every opportunity I get because it is always a treat. Besides being great musicians they are really great guys who anyone would would welcome as friends. They are Stone Cold great!!!"

"Although my radio station only features blues in a one-hour program on the weekend and in the various classic rock hits we play that owe so much to the genre, Brett Wellman and the Stone Cold Blues Band have played an integral role in and on my station for years. The band has always been on point to play for our special events and never fails to awe the audience. Rock is indebted to the blues from its very roots and Brett and the boys bring those roots to life onstage at every performance. Their unique mastery of the various regional blues influences clearly spell out that basis of rock music and help the listener cross the blurry lines between blues, rock and roll and the other fields of modern music that we all love. This band and one other have always been there for us and for that we are eternally grateful, as well as the many fine memories of superb performances we have benefited from over the years."

"These guys are very tight and all great musicians. I've had the pleasure of getting to know them all, just really kind respectful people. I highly recommend going to see these guys perform."
Dale Cook
"Not only does Brett Wellman and The SCBB always deliver a classic , funky and fresh Blues show every time, but these great musicians pour themselves into other local musicians, young and old, sharing the passion and love for music!Igniting sparks of musical desire to improve beyond our individual level/ I for one am a recipient of these men’s desire to see others succeed! In my opinion, that’s what sets them apart of the rest! Win or lose, they are the best!!!"

Fan of Brett Wellman and the Stone Cold Blues Band
"Brett Wellmanand Chris Balding are both great musicians and I know you guys are going to do well in Memphis. Brett has been hosting an open mic, along with "Dangerous" Dave Messler open to all musicians of any skill level and any age for over two years now at Dreamland BBQ on Thursday nights in Tallahassee Florida; this shows his true passion for music as he shares himself not only with the crowd but also with other musicians his love for music. Thanks Brett and I'd like to wish you both all the luck in Memphis."

Fan of Brett Wellman and Chris Balding (Duo)
"I've told all my friends in Clarksdale to stop by to see Bret and Chris and the band as they make a slight detour to Ground Zero. The band is great and Balding is one of the best ha on harmonica that I've ever heard in person including Stevie, Jason, Deak, Brandon and Winslow."
David Self
Fan of Brett and Chris
My family and I were fortunate to be associated with accomplished professional musicians of many genres for over sixty years. Tallahassee overflows with talent and we are so grateful to these artists for their tireless dedication to excellence. I was, and continue to be, impressed with the quality of Brett and the band's performances with Tab Benoit at The Moon to the local Harley Davidson club meeting. They deliver every time with the best in blues, audience interaction and overall entertainment. Fabulous! Best of luck in Memphis! You guys deserve to win!
