The Blues Prophets began as The New England Blues Prophets rehearsing in the basement of a house in Fairfield, Maine in 1976. Live music was everywhere in those years. Still, to the bands surprise, patrons embraced a band that played the blues and nothing else.
The Blues Prophets introduced many local patrons to the music. Doug Wainoris, guitar/vocals. DW Gill, harmonica/vocals. Jeffrey Davison, drums/vocals. Jamie Isaacson, piano. Jack Tukey, bass guitar. The band traveled to the blues bars of Chicago, played many stages in New Orleans, Washington, D.C., Boston, and throughout Maine/New England, honing their craft and becoming an institution. During their travels the boys met and jammed with living legends of the day such as James Cotton, Otis Rush, Muddy Waters, Professor Longhair, Jimmy Johnson and Bonnie Raitt.

OLS Covid-19 Protocols:
We are very excited to be hosting live music shows again in our listening room. OLS is committed to providing a safe environment for all who work, listen, or perform live music in our venue. Because our venue is so small, we will require all staff, volunteers, performers, and patrons to show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 when they attend OLS events AND to wear masks indoors unless they are actively drinking, eating, or performing.
Proof of vaccine must come directly from the health care provider that performed the vaccination and can be a photo or physical copy of the vaccination card or record with an accompanying photo ID. Full vaccination means that the date of the performance you are attending is:
*at least 14 days after your second dose of an FDA or WHO authorized two dose COVID-19 vaccine, or
*at least 14 days after your single dose of an FDA or WHO authorized single dose COVID vaccine.
We hope we can ease these restrictions once further progress has been made reducing transmission of the virus. Until then, we greatly appreciate your patience and cooperation.
