It’s time for a new adventure! My life has been surrounded with creativity. For very long time, I have nurtured my creative force. Not always putting 100% into it, so I could make a living.
This journey has made my life worth while! I have no regrets! I’ve learned a lot and shared many wonderful moments with many wonderful musicians and audiences!

I felt that many times I have expressed myself playing in some of the great bands I’ve worked with, but when I go into a recording studio, I fall short of my expectations! Playing live, when you’re physically disabled is very difficult! And I do not like depending on other people! Most of the time, I come to the gigs stressed out and physically exhausted and then I have to suck it in and try to be creative! So after a lot of soul-searching I’ve decided I will do some live performances but will focus on recording music and working on my health and mental well-being!  I just finished my studio {recording/ Video}, and in the process of working on some music that will be far beyond what I’ve ever released before. I’m finally starting to understand how to tongue-block and incorporate all the techniques that I learned in my 45 years of playing this instrument. My goal is to master the harmonica to the best of my abilities. But most importantly. I do this for myself. I don’t really need accolades or don’t want money! It will be a gift to whoever wants it! Miles Davis said that “>

The David Langlois and the Hot Clubbers  album is out!!!

 This Gypsy Jazz ensemble will featured Miguel on a few cuts! I was about 2 years out from braking my back and David asked me to play this gig, LOL”!!


I plan on producing my first full length album too. This will focus on my harmonica and feature different groups that demonstrate the different genre and sound I’ve created the music.

Past Gigs

The JAHWID videos taken from a fan/s phone in 2013. Miguel enhanced the sound a bit and created the Logo and Titles.


The Canglosi Cards

The Cangelosi cards with Tamar Korn, Jake Sanders, Marko Gazic Cassidy Holden Andrew Nemr, New Year’s eve 2007! This was at the grand ballroom is the Manhattan Center.
The Dresden dolls saw us busking on the street and hired us to be one of the Warm-up bands. With the agreement that we would ask for donations to the couple thousand people in the audience! Was a lot of ones!
Was the longest day ever! We had three gigs and two rehearsals! We started about 10 in the morning and went to about 6 AM the next day!
This video was from the telephone bar on second Avenue. That’s Tamar on Vox and Mark Tipton on trumpet. We had a regular gig there in the back room, where people could dance but no one could talk! LOL! Was nice! Got spoiled!

The Canglosi Cards past gigs include opening the 2007 New Year’s Eve Show at the Grand Ballroom in Manhattan, Swing Out New Hampshire (’06, ’07,’08, ’09), the Washington D.C. Lindy Exchange (’08, 09’), The Big, Big, Event in Washington D.C. (’07).

Jul 292012

Ellard-James Moose Boles and The Bullet Proof Band will be making their way up to New Jersey/Bergen County for 4 shows…January 15th (Friday Night) 2016 at The GW Grill (2139 Hudson Terrace, Fort Lee) 9 Pm No Cover, 1/ 16, 2016 @ The Blue Moon, S.Amboy, N.J. and also Thursday January 21st at Ranchero Cantina (214 Kinderkamack Rd, Emerson NJ), 22/16 @ R & Bz, BAYONNE, N.J for a night of “Blues & Nothing But The Blues” and these guys are “The Real Deal”….Moose a former “Downtown Manhattan Blues Musician” and also former Lou (8 Years) Reed and Gregg Allman Band member and his unbelievable “Top Notch” band as well as many special guests expected at most “Moose Sightings” are sure to bring the house down!!!

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!

Being that I have two masters working with me, were locking down the groves for this project. Looking to gig and later this year, record. We will be focusing on all types of Blues, Trad jazz, World beat, Gipsy Jazz, and funk such as The Meters. We will have repertoire to fill a night for all genres so if you want just blues, you get nothing but the blues!
