About The Downtown Livewires

Based in Northwest Arkansas (Bentonville/Fayetteville), the Downtown Livewires play high-energy electric blues/rock, Memphis blues, and legacy blues. Their music is timeless and classic and always makes the crowd dance and sing along.

The leaders of the band are Roger Thomas from Memphis, playing guitar and providing lead vocals; Bob "Superharp" Coleman on harmonica and vocals; and Kurt Haas on keyboards. Thomas often jumps off the stage, plays and sings with the crowd, and creates an engaging show full of fun party music. With a top-notch sound and lighting system, the Downtown Livewires take their show on the road nationwide, but primarily play in the Southwest, Midwest, and Mid-South.

The Downtown Livewires are a great band for blues festivals, class reunions, and any event that needs a high-energy band with first-rate talent.
