History of the Powerhouse
Bubba Wilson and the Powerhouse is comprised of Al Bacus on bass guitar and vocals, Dave Sneed on drums, Rick Warner on keys and Bubba Wilson on guitar and lead vocals. The band formed in late 2014, playing blues and classic rock in bars, venues , and private events in the NW Ohio, SE Michigan area as a cover band. In 2015, the group began writing and performing original compositions, which led to their first EP release, "Exit 17". Since the release, the band participated in the 2015 Detroit Blues Society Blues Challenge, placing 2nd in the finals to long time friends and blues warriors, the Chris Canas Band, and have played blues clubs and festivals across Michigan and Ohio, including the 2016 Jackson Bluesfest. The future is looking up for the Powerhouse, so keep your eyes peeled! You never know where they'll end up next.
