Black N' Blue at ROCKLAHOMA,
Pryor, Oklahoma, 9 to 13 July 2008.
Black 'n Blue is a glam metal band currently featuring singer Jaime St. James, guitarist Shawn Sonnenschein, guitarist Jeff Warner, bassist Patrick Young, and drummer Pete Holmes. They were expected by many to be “the next big thing”, but, despite having a loyal fan base, they never broke through commercially.
