Billy Galt & The Blues Deacons

The Blues Deacons have been a mainstay of the downstate Illinois blues scene since forming in 1990.

Billy Galt (guitar/vocals) has made blues his profession since 1980. Galt has honed his skills backing blues luminaries such as Homesick James, Sonny Boy Williamson Jr., Maxwell Street Jimmy, and Shirley King (daughter of the legendary B.B. King).

Andy Burnett (drums) re-joins the Blues Deacons after a few years absence.  He brings energy, a driving beat, and a fresh look to the Deacons lineup.

Beau "Blind Dog" Renshaw (bass) has had many years of classical cello training. He lays down sturdy bass lines
