Nebraska blues band Josh Hoyer and the Shadowboxers play the Green Frog

Josh Hoyer and The Shadowboxers, formed in late 2012 in blues town Lincoln, Neb., performs at 8 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 16, at the Green Frog, 1015 N. State St.

For the last 15 years Hoyer has been in demand as a performer in his previous bands, as a solo artist behind the piano, and as a session musician and arranger. Spending much of his time booking and promoting in Lincoln at the legendary Zoo Bar and beyond, Hoyer is an influential part of the funk, soul and blues youth movement.

His current nine-piece soul band includes some of the area’s most accomplished musicians, who have toured nationally and internationally, teach music and are asked to back up bands live and in the studio. The band’s sound and passion come from their deep respect, knowledge of and passion for blues, Americana, soul, funk and many other styles of music.
