How do you become a Hitman? A sharp suit and a thousand songs. That’s what earned New York City native Russell Alexander his moniker, early in the vast musical career that made him the master guitarist, singer, and songwriter for the Hitman Blues Band...
We can go out as a trio, quartet, quintet, all the way up to ten pieces. Below is the configuration for the nine piece setup.
ampeg svt or gk amp 8-10 cabinet for speakers
Nord or Hammond (electric), a good amp for stage monitoring (or a monitor), a keyboard stand and a bench plus all the cables and foot pedals
22’’ base, brass snare 10 lug, 13’’ rack, 15 & 16 floor. Quality Ride, two crashes, & high hats.
Fender Blues Deville or similar (Blues Junior, Twin, Vibrolux, whatever.) As long as it makes noise and doesn’t have blown speakers, I’m good.
Horns: stage mikes
Backup vocals: 3 mikes (two for bu vocalists, one for the bassist). They would prefer not to have to share one mike.
