Local bands that are friends of mine:
My guitar teacher and good friend of mine: Stuart Kinzel
His style is very much like Mark Knopfler's. He does finger style blues, hillbilly blues, rockabilly, and a few rock tunes.
He's known here in the Portland area for the "Best Blues Act for 2001" with his band "Kinzel and Hyde"
There new album "Okalahoma Credit Card" was just released on Slip Side Records. To learn more about Kinzel and Hyde click here
Here are some sound files from their brand-new CD "Oklahoma Credit Card" This CD features 7 all new and original songs with guest vocalists including the fantastic Lily Wilde! Click on her name to go directly to Lily's swangin' website! The CD also features 6 traditional numbers that have been adapted to our four-piece. In Portland, you can purchase the CD at For What It's Worth on Woodstock, SE. CDbaby.com has our CD's, too. (You can also purchase one from me, Shaun Toman)
