GA-20 was formed by friends Pat Faherty and Matthew Stubbs in Boston, MA, in 2018. The project was born out of their mutual love of heavy traditional blues, R&B and rock & roll of the late 50s and early 60s. Faherty and Stubbs bonded over legendary artists like Lazy Lester, J.B. Lenoir, Earl Hooker, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush and Junior Wells. Feeling a void in current music, the duo have set out to write, record and perform a modern version of this beloved art form. Joined by drummer Tim Carman in 2019, GA-20 is a trio of two guitars, vocals and drums. Raw, passionate and honest performance, both on stage and in the studio, is the only goal. Stubbs has spent the past 11 years as guitarist for blues legend Charlie Musselwhite. During that time he has also backed up and toured with such blues giants as John Hammond, James Cotton, Junior Watson and James Harman. Stubbs also leads his own original instrumental psych-rock band, The Antiguas.

Bjorn & Francois, a duo consisting of Bjorn Jacobsen on guitar and vocals and Francois Byers on keyboards, made its way into the North Carolina scene after the two met in a local bar while performing the same night. Needless to say, the two saw a potential that they were longing to find in many other previous cities and bands. Catch them touring the east coast or around their present home town, Winston Salem, NC.
