"Chicago Bill" Bouchard
Raised on the far south side of Chicago, Bouchard is no stranger to the Blues. In college, Bill Bouchard of The Next Blues Band got some handy advice from Howlin' Wolf, an influential American blues singer, guitarist and harmonica player.
In a Chicago club, the blues icon placed his hand on Bouchard's chest and said, "You have to play from here." In the late '80's, Bouchard put together The Next Blues Band in Monterey, California, and heeded Wolf's words. The gritty blues group has played the Monterey Bay Blues Festival and Seaside's Blues in the Park series, where they cut their live CD "I've Got News."
One thing The Next Blues Band does not do is practice. "We put out more of an emotional music," Bouchard says. "You can't rehearse emotion."
