Oreo Blue 

Artist Statement / Bio:  Oreo Blue: Astonishing and blistering guitar buttressed by a rock solid and grooving rhythm section. Widely regarded as one of the region’s top acts, Northwest Arkansas-based Oreo Blue has thrilled audiences for over 34 years in clubs, at festivals, corporate parties, and special events. Oreo Blue has produced eleven independently released original audio CDs that have sold copies in more than 30 different countries. Oreo Blue produced a full length CD/DVD video tribute to Jimi Hendrix that was endorsed by the Hendrix family. In 2005, the Oreo Blue Experience was named the #1 Hendrix tribute for the year by Voodoo Child Magazine. Oreo Blue’s latest release, Oreo Blue:  Thirtieth Anniversary Live Concert DVD & USB , is a full-live original album and concert video summing up the best of the band’s original music over the past three decades. Having garnered individual awards in each member’s category by both the NAMA’s and OMA Awards, Oreo Blue has been named Blues Band of the Year five times, earned the OMA award for Overall Musicianship in 2004 and 2005, and was named to the NAMA Hall of Fame in 2006, the NWAMC Hall of Fame in 2024 and received the NAMA Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012. Guitarist Gary Hutchison received the OMA Lifetime Achievement Award in 2004 and drummer Stephen Boudreaux was inducted into the Drummers of Arkansas Hall of Fame in 2020. Oreo Blue has been invited to participate in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN, twice by both the Ozark Blues Society in 2009 and by the Fort Smith Riverfront Blues Society in 2013, respectively.  The “newest” member of Oreo Blue is John Seaberg on bass who is renown for his time as bassist and songwriter in The Steve Gaines (Crawdad, Lynyrd Skynyrd) Band.  Seaberg brings a renewed fire and moxie to Oreo Blue beyond his legendary status.
