VizzTone Juke Blues Heroes Scissormen to Star in New Robert Mugge Film Big Shoes


In the world of blues, few artists can straddle the music’s deepest traditions and its future like Scissormen. The Nashville-based band’s sound — which they’ve taken all over the world and to all kinds of venues, from coffeehouses to the stages of Bonnaroo, Cognac Blues Passions and Memphis in May — is based in the juke joints of Mississippi’s hill country and Delta, but reaches out to embrace Chicago blues, Memphis street music and much more. And they are building a legend with high energy shows packed with stunning slide guitar playing that appeals to young and old fans alike and often finds bandleader Ted Drozdowski literally playing in his audience’s laps.
