When I was a teenager, Elvin Bishop simply turned us on. We loved his music and lyrics, always playing the right notes. Guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Elvin Bishop has been singing and recording his wild rollicking style of electrified home made blues for almost 40 years. Bishop’s history making presence as a founding member of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band in the 1960s, his numerous chart-topping hits in the 1970s, and his domination of Alligator Records in the late 1980s and into the 1990s place him at the beginning of electric blues guitarists. Elvin’s music has a mixture of his blues roots with contemporary funk and rock taste with a bit of country and the relaxed feeling of his Northern California home.

If this is not enough proof for you, then you are hopeless, and not a fan of the blues.
We know you are blues fans at Guitar Players Center. You can see more of Elvin on You Tube. Enjoy
