Old Dogs (Roger Blanton, John Chambliss, Steve Lockwood)

Steve Lockwood – acoustic guitar, vocals, song writing

with John Chambliss – double bass, computer wizardry

and Roger Blanton – mandolin, vocals 

Performing acoustic originals and blues tunes, most will be new to listeners. Steve and John have been known to perform as ‘The Disappointments” and “Lockbliss Monster”. John and Roger have performed for years in the “Rhythm Hounds” and other locals bands. Steve has played for years with Don McGregor – so have John and Roger!

Coming to you soon at Farmers’ Markets, and indoor venues when the pandemic allows.

This site is under development. These are tunes recorded in our living rooms during the pandemic. Take a listen; we recommend listening with headphones. New music is being added periodically—check back often.

  1. Thank you Steve and friends for sharing such amazing talent, heart & soul of Memphis ……causes me to feel “homesick” for Memphis town and so many of those I love there ❣️

  2. Love! Can’t wait to come see you fellas live…someday…pandemic blues. 😩

    ~ From R. Blanton’s former mouthy (still am) high school student many moons ago

  3. Just what this former mid south gal needed to hear. Made me homesick and happy at the same time. Wonderful!!

  4. Made me homesick and I live here. I need some live music.

  5. As I posted earlier, I’m way too prejudiced to get anywhere near objectivity, but I know what I like! 👏❤️
    Thanks Jim!
