|News: I was saddened to learn that Ghost Band singer Jon Wearing is deceased. Watch for a tribute on this site.|
George Kerby is a journeyman musician
from Detroit. He was a member of the notorious
1970s Cass Corridor bands
and The Inside/Outside Band,
and has worked with such notable artists as
blues pioneer Bobo Jenkins,
jazz master and session musican
Peter Madcat Ruth,
guitarist/composer Rob Abate,
perennial DownBeat Poll winner clarinetist
and The Original
Ted Lucas to name a few.
The 1980s found George in California where he was a regular at the jam sessions at Berkeley's famed Ashkenaz, and San Francisco's North Beach blues clubs before landing the bass chair with Alesia Panajota. Returning to Michigan in 1990, he became an integral member of The Ghost Band, and for several years was a core member of Muruga's Global Village Band and Free Funk, playing on the latter's self-titled debut Qbico LP .
