Known for his gritty voice, soulful guitar work and high-energy stage show, renown blues performer Wayne Young offers his listeners a chance to taste some smoky blues cooked over a little red-hot rock 'n roll.
Young started his music career in the late 1950s
Jimmy Decker & the Southernaires

in the 1960s joined Soul, Inc. for two tours with the "Dick Clark Caravan of Stars" and nights opening for Bo Diddley, Paul Revere and the Raiders, and The Byrds.
In the 1970s and 1980s, Young began to hone his blues licks with The Heavyweights and later toured extensively with his own group, Midnight Special. In the Nineties, he created and performed the popular Slow Hand, and Eric Clapton tribute show, and reunited with his Soul, Inc. band mates to put out a CD under the name The Shufflin' Granddads.
