2015 has already proven to be a growing year for Blue Mafia, and it's only February! We just released our album on Pinecastle Records, and the reviews and radio airplay are letting us know we're on a good path. So what else is new, you may ask? We just started working with Jason Grubb. He's an amazing artist manager and booking agent. He has taken on the role of booking our band, and we're so fortunate for this new relationship! On top of that, we are blessed to have a wonderful friend and Manager, Eric Lindley. Eric is an attorney, banjo player, and all around good guy! We hope you'll welcome both Eric and Jason to our family!
