Krimson Chord Brings The Blues to Bikers

Krimson Chord has been rocking the Valley with their Southwest blues for more than a decade now, playing regular gigs at Pappy's Bar in Phoenix and Coyote Alley in Surprise. This is no fly-by-night group; they won the Arizona Blues Challenge in 2010 and competed in the International Blues Challenge in 2011. Every musician in this band also works with other bands in the Valley.

Papa G Gihley is the lead guitarist, vocalist and plays harmonica...sometimes. Everybody in the group performs lead vocals--just not at the same time.
