The LowRiders Blues Band are a high-octane, rocking blues and Americana group from Fredericksburg, Virginia. The band was formed in 2019 by one of Fredericksburg Blues Society’s founding members Sam T (SammyT) Floyd. Sammy provides the driving lead vocals and guitar bringing his long years of playing into a total and unique musical experience.
The other founding LowRiders band members are Percussionist, Jay Padgett and Bassist, Mike Ash. Jay is a highly respected Percussionist in the Fredericksburg music scene. He has played with some of the top bands in the DMV over the years. Mike has years of experience as a journeyman musician providing the perfect pairing with Jay. Together they provide the anchors for the LowRiders allowing the guys up front to do their thing.
Early in 2023, The LowRiders welcomed Vocalists and Saxophonist Greg Norris along with Vocalist and Guitarist Brent Light to the group. Greg hails from Ashville North Carolina where he was a fixture in the local music circuit. Brent’s guitar influences are rooted strongly in the blues and he has a wide vocal range allowing him to feel at home with soulful jams and all out rockers.
The LowRiders put heart and soul into every song that they cover and write. They take a song and make it their own with passion and purpose!
