Rising from the ashes of the touring rocking blues band from the late eighties and early nineties formerly known as The Benders, Henry Clay and The Full Grown Men is comprised of five seasoned veterans of the Columbia, Missouri music scene. Leading the band on vocals and harmonica is consummate bluesman Henry Clay Ransburg. When it comes to the blues, few are more knowledgeable, and none more committed to keeping the music alive with their very heart and soul. Originally from New Madrid, Missouri, Henry transplanted to the Kansas City and Columbia area many moons ago, and has been vital in a large number of bands since, always contributing positively with his innate blues stylings. As for guitarists, the FGM is blessed with two of the best, Sean Hennessy and Pete Szkolka. Whether it's laying down an unwavering groove on the Strat or swinging hard on the Big Box, Columbia's own Sean Hennessy is the blues bus driver, so grab onto something, because you're going for a ride. Add native Chicagoan triple threat Pete Szkolka on guitar, keys, and vocals to conjure up the demons and make a blues roux so thick you can dance on it and you've got a recipe for take-out that will leave you feeling the effects long after the lights are out. Nailing down the bottom end are John Robo Robertson on bass and Jimmy Joe Cotton Culbertson on drums. Hailing from Borneo and Latvia respectively, these two gave up cannibalism for music and it shows in their playing. Whether it's Muddy Waters or Mick Jagger, or anything in between, The Full Grown Men serve up an adult portion of dancing blues music that will satisfy your cravings and yet leave you wanting more. You might recognize a few of the covers and even a couple of the originals, but regardless, you will hear real blues music played real good.
