The Insomniacs seemed to literally explode onto the scene out of nowhere in 2007 as a fully-formed and functional unit delighting audiences with their joyous and highly contagious musical sound and irresistible sense of swing. Their self-produced debut release "Left Coast Blues", recorded in the living room of bassist Dean Mueller, was quickly snatched up and issued on Delta Groove Music, hitting a peak position of No. 5 on the national Living Blues radio charts. Critical praise and industry recognition from the blues community soon followed, garnering the band a 2008 Blues Music Award nomination for Best New Artist Debut, as well as a 2007 Muddy Award presented by the Cascade Blues Association for Best Contemporary Blues Act. They bust out with an original mix of blues, swing, jump, and roots rock & roll that has crowds dancing the night away.
