«Bubs McKeg» - biografía, álbumes, canciones, videoclips

Bubs McKeg is a blues singer, guitarist and songwriter. His powerful and soulful voice, matched with his finger-picking guitar style create a blues experience quite unlike any other.


Bubs started out onto the Pittsburgh music scene in the ’60s with “The Igniters”. Rock and Roll was hard to ignore back then , but the R and B and blues roots were firmly planted. Behind the “Rascals” the Igniters became only the second white band ever signed to Atlantic Records. Two singles were released, and then the band split up. After a few years of various bar bands, Bubs linked up with an old band mate and Started “Diamond Reo”. (No, not the country band) Diamond Reo signed a contract with “Big Tree” records, a subsidiary of Atlantic, and they were back in the record business. Bubs can be heard singing lead on the bands only top 40 hit… “Aint That Peculiar”, a remake of the Marvin Gaye hit. Extensive touring with many of rock’s top names came with promoting that song. After leaving Diamond Reo, Bubs recorded for Buddah and Phantom Records under the name “McKeg” until hooking up with James Lawson. “McKeg Lawson” became a well known blues name in the Pittsburgh blues scene, but in 1994 James Lawson lost a battle with cancer. Bubs kept the band going under the same name for five more years. Since that time he has been gigging under his own name and recording some of his best work.
