Ellard-James Boles (Moose) is a veteran blues singer, writer and musician. He has played and recorded throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe with such legendary performers as Lou Reed, Greg Allman, Stevie Ray Vaughn, David Bowie, Buddy Miles, James Cotton, Lonnie Brooks, Junior Wells, C. J. Chenier, John Belushi, Steve Marriott, and Steve Miller.

Moose is of African-American, Native American (Choctaw and Cherokee), Cajun, and Georgia redneck descent. He discovered his love for music, specifically the blues, as a young boy. He sang in church choirs at age seven. He got his first taste of the blues from his father, a guitarist and song writer who had jammed with Muddy Waters.

He continues to perform and record extensively. He is currently touring with his Bulletproof Blues Band and invites all blues fans to experience his dynamic performances when ever the opportunity arises.

Moose and the Built Proof Blues Band’s Moving on was produced by Ellard-James and Miguel mixed and co produced with Craig Randal At Brass Giraffe, recorded in 1995. Moose wrote the lyrics, Miguel composed and arranged the music with the Built Proof Blues Band, Ellard-James Boles (Moose): bass and vocals. James “T”T illson: guitar, Earthen Steel: piano, Danny Cipriano: sax, Dan augmented Miguel’s horn lines with the harmonies, Richie Johnson: drums, Miguel Weissman: harmonica.

This Line up traveled from Europe and though the south, and were regulars all along the east coast. They were the first electric band to play at the 92nd street Y. For three years they were the house band at Chicago Blues and the 55 Bar where they warmed up for James Cotton, Buddie Miles, Junior Wells, Dave Maxwell and Clifton Chenier. The band had the honor to play at the UN, jamming with Eartha Kit on TV and having the dubious honor of being the last band to get payed at Dan Lynch before it closed!

Ellard-James Moose Boles, James Tillson and I { Miguel Weissman} played at a club in Fort Lee NJ in February 2015, Moose, Tee and I have been playing off and on for 25 years! We were joined by the talented Tom Cucchiara on drums. Playing with them was like sipping on a warn in pair of slippers. Molded to you foot, just the right amount to stink so no one else would where it, but it feels good! The very talented Nikki Armstrong came by and killed it! My buddy Nicholas Opalenik came by and helped with the sound.

At one point these two women were dirty dancing, the fell in into my lap, I was sitting down, just grazed my lip with my harp and mike! I lived to play another day!
