Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founding member Jimmie Fadden always admired early blues music. It made him want to kick back, sing, and play his harmonica. He formed Suitcase Full of Blues with bluesman Al Fuller and bassist JP Coley to do just that.
Al Fuller has played all over the world, from Vietnam for the troops to Seattle, Maine to Florida. Now he makes his home in Sarasota, where he has hosted a blues jam for over 18 years.
Longtime local bassist J.P. Coley has played bass for local favorites such as as the Hurricanes, Twinkle, the Instigators, Greg Poulos, Dan Electro, Tomcat Blake and the Venturas.
Thirty-three albums, three number-one singles, and a couple of Grammys have not made drummer,vocalist, harmonica player Jimmie Fadden complacent. “I’ve been very lucky,” Fadden says.
