The Credo Blues Society was founded in 2005 by William "Chuck" Credo IV who is widely-known to many as one of the premier guitarists to come out of New Orleans in the new millennium. Credo's foundation in music began with his grandfather, Chuck Credo Jr, who toured the world playing Dixieland Jazz and blues with his group "The Basin Street Six." After years of studying the works of the greats such as Buddy Guy, BB King, and Eric Clapton, Credo's turn at bat came in mid-2005 after Hurricane Katrina destroyed his home of New Orleans. Vowing to be a part of the cultural reconstruction of his hometown, Credo formed "The Credo Blues Society", a conglomeration of music talent from New Orleans who's focus is the musical preservation of all forms of the blues, especially the sounds of New Orleans R&B.
This six piece group has been known to have many local legends - like John "Papa" Gros, Al "Carnival TIme" Johnson, and Runnin' Pardner Brint Anderson - join CBS to make a New Orleans powerhouse group!
