Steele Memorial Bandstand

Lakeside is pleased to present Columbus Ohio bluesman Sean Carney and his band the Joint Rockers. Backing a wide array of local and national R & B greats such as Christine Kittrell and Jimmy “T-99” Nelson and making it known that he was a skilled and tasteful guitarist and vocalist.

In 1998, he recorded his debut CD Provisions, gained exposure and experience serving as Teeny Tucker’s musical director and co-writer, and served as a tireless advocate for those same artists, the blues, and jump they represented and the area’s musical heritage, writing articles, being a dj, promoting concerts and serving three terms as President of the Columbus Blues Alliance.

Sean’s profile received a major boost as both and national and international recognized artist. Drummer Eric Blume and Sean founded Nite Owlz Records in 2006 and issued Sean’s CD Life Of Ease. It was a welcome surprise and a triumph of substance when The Sean Carney Band won the Albert King Best Guitarist and took first place at the 2007 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. His 2007 and 2008 Blues For A Cure shows and CDs raised over $50,000 for the cause. He has performed worldwide with Big Joe Duskin, Duke Robillard, Charlie Baty, Willie Pooch, Hank Marr, Joe Weaver, Johnnie Bassett, “King Saxe” Gene Walker, Sir Mack Rice and Hal Singer as well as his own group.

As his visibility has grown, so has the growing realization that Sean is a noteworthy, sophisticated master of tone and taste with a broad appreciation for the music before him and around him and a knack for turning out interesting songs. His discography has shown a solid, well-considered approach and, as he puts it, “solid songs and tight arrangements.” And his reputation as a talent, a respecter of tradition and a humble and gracious person has become deservedly widespread.
