O'Reilly - Bailey Band
Both Rich O'Reilly and Jim Bailey are veterans of the New England blues/roots scene.  Backed by the solid backbeat grooves of veteran drummer Dan McAllister, their combination of real music combined with a strong message has won over enthusiastic fans who have had the pleasure of encountering this team.
Rich is a veteran of the New England music scene who has performed with many of the top rock, blues and jazz bands.  Making way for his bands to become headliners, he opened for many national acts including Tommy Castro and Duke Robillard.  One of his most successful bands, Stone Blue, became a mainstay at the original House of Blues in Cambridge, MA.
Jim, a former member of the Cambridge Harmonica Orchestra, has played in blues and country bands - he had a well-known blues outfit called the Mojo Kings, which played the original House of Blues, among many others.
