Musical artists collaborate all the time. We all can identify with that feeling when, your favorite band invites a well-known keyboardist, or killer guitarist on stage at a festival or show. It is simply magical.
When renowned keyboardist Nate Wilson, band leader for Ghosts of Jupiter, and founding member of both Assembly of Dust, and Percy Hill, came to moe.’s bassist and vocalist, Rob Derhak with the idea to form a band on those principles, the band Blue Star took its first breath. Enlisting the drumming prowess of moe.’s long time rhythm keeper, Vinnie Amico, and none other than guitarist and vocalist from the legendary bands The Breakfast, Kung Fu, and most recently Lotus, Tim Palmieri, the genesis of Blue Star came to be.
A band of improvisational, jam band musicians that all share an affinity for the classic rock we all know and love. The ditties, the anthems, and the deep cuts that remind us of a different time. They simply write the songs and play the covers that give the audience goosebumps.
