RL Boyce is a blues musician from Como, Mississippi. Born in 1955, he picked up music as a teenager, starting out as a drummer in the local fife-and-drum bands of Otha Turner and Napolian Strickland, and later with Jessie Mae Hemphill as heard on her classic "Feelin' Good" album. He is also a singer and guitarist, inspired by his neighbors RL Burnside and Junior Kimbrough, as well as the records of John Lee Hooker and Howlin' Wolf. Boyce developed an individual style that draws upon songs from the local repertoire and interprets them with a considerable degree of enthusiasm and spontaneity. Though his recorded output is slim, Boyce's renown has grown over the years and his performances at his frequent house/yard parties attract friends, neighbors, and visitors from around the world. 50 Miles of Elbow Room is thrilled that he agreed to make a rare visit to New York to play a few intimate and sure-to-be-memorable solo gigs.

Hey Andria! Of course I'm biased, but it was a lot of fun. His shows really picked up steam. First night was good, maybe a bit tentative/tired from travel. After a good rest, the next day he played solo for ~2 hours to a packed house. Then on Sunday, after playing a few songs by himself, he was joined by Greg Anderson on drums and they rocked for 3+ nonstop hours. We had a ball, lots of laughs, enthusiastic crowds, and he seemed to really enjoy himself. Really couldn't have asked for better.
