Forty Below Zero

It’s been a long road to get to 40 Below Zero, and back to the Blues both literally and figuratively.  Rich Giglio one of the guitarists hails from upstate New York.   Jerry Basic our bluesy oriented guitarist grew up in Brooklyn NY.  The drummer Jim Roepstorff calls his childhood home Kokomo, Indiana.  While the bassist Steve Mares was born and raised in Denver, he spent significant time in Seattle and Canada honing his musical talents before returning.
Cumulatively our professional experience encompasses, rock, funk, country, folk, rockabilly, jazz, pop, and fusion bands.  All these forms of music are heavily based in the Blues. As we created 40 Below Zero we wanted a format that was recognizable to all age groups and provided a fun platform for the group to showcase our talents.  The Blues was the obvious choice.   So about 6 months ago we started writing, arranging and rehearsing.  This has developed into a tight, soulful, blues oriented band - heavy on the Rock.  Comparable styles and musical influences would certainly include Joe Bonamassa, Robben Ford, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Eric Clapton.  
Presently our show consists of 40% revamped covers and 60% originals.  Our first show was in December at Ziggies for a standing room only - very appreciative crowd.   This being our second show we can’t wait to be on the big stage at the Buffalo Rose and hope that - YOU - will find the time to spend an evening with us “getting back to the Blues and having fun.”
