Three Fifteen And His Squares

Three Fifteen and His Squares might be the best blues band name I’ve heard, it sounds straight out of 80s power-pop not piano blues in the 1930s. The band itself is as enigmatic as its name, Dave Blunston is the vocalist on these tracks and the rest of the band, and where they are from/how they got their name is unknown. The band most likely hails from Louisiana because of references to Texas Avenue and the horn work is very hot jazz/New Orleans. Blunston isn’t much of a vocalist, but he holds the tracks together and allows for the backing band to do some incredible work.
