Barrelhouse Blend is a combo with guitar, piano, percussion, and tight harmonies reminiscent of the bands of the '70s and '80s. The Barrelhouse Blend Duo combines Kathleen Dooley (vocals/piano) and Gary Krause (vocals/guitar) covering a huge catalog of cover and original music evocative of their extensive backgrounds in bar bands, musical theater, worship music, jazz, and pop performance.
Sherry Winchester Schultz (vocals/percussion) joins Kathleen and Gary with an infectious energy and her big congas to form the Barrelhouse Blend Trio.
Both combinations are driven by audience requests and adapt quickly to the environment to create a lively and interactive musical experience. Barrelhouse Blend combines rock & roll, jazz, R&B, blues, and coffeehouse folk roots to cover such artists as James Taylor, Carole King, The Eagles, Ray Charles, Journey, Kansas, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Brandi Carlisle, Jim Croce, Aretha Franklin, Melissa Etheridge, The Foo Fighters, Bonnie Raitt, and many more.
