In the 1980s, Leroy Airmaster was the dominant blues band in a vibrant live blues music scene in southeastern Wisconsin. They constantly performed and released four well-received recordings. They received numerous WAMI awards for best blues group. The members of the most popular version of the group reformed in 2010 and continue to perform their unique blend of blues, jazz, and rock music. Not content to rehash classic blues licks, Steve Cohen (harmonica) and Bill Stone’s (guitar) solo styles rely heavily on a jazz approach but never lose the gutsy blues framework that made the band so famous.
With powerhouse drummer Marc Wilson and original bassist Dave Kasik, Leroy continues to satisfy audiences with their musical prowess, tasteful song selections, and dynamic delivery.
Junior Brantley, the singer and keyboard artist, started his illustrious career in Milwaukee in the early 1960s, performing with Sonny Boy Williamson and others at local venues. In the mid-1960s, his group, Junior and The Classics had a break-out hit on a national record label. By 1970, he performed with the legendary Milwaukee blues group “Short Stuff.” When Short Stuff broke up 15 years later, Junior served three years with Leroy Airmaster, after which he toured with Jimmy Vaughan, Stevie Ray Vaughan, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, and Roomful Of Blues. In 1992, Junior moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, where he has been located ever since, playing with his groups and many other ensembles.
