The Soulard Blues Band


There are so many great bands that play in the venues of Soulard, but only one named after the community!

In 1978, Soulard was a fairly run down neighborhood with rents cheap enough for even musicians to live there. One such performer was 32-year-old tall, lanky bass player Art Dwyer who teamed with like minded fans of Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, and Little Walter, not to mention Henry Townsend, Tommy Bankhead, and James Crutchfield, to form a band they named after their community, the Soulard Blues Band!
