James Page, the youngest of five from Compton CA, has been known as “Whiteboy” since he took his first steps. Whiteboy first was exposed to American Music — from hillbilly to jump blues, country blues to swing and much more — from his Uncle Ed Tunks’ huge collection of 78 records. A tough kid who became a tough man, James has been a harp-blowing, shout-singing bandleader since his teens. Long-known across So-Cal as “the Long Beach legend,” “the bad boy of the blues,” and much more, Whiteboy delivers a barnstorming, floor-stomping, dramatic show that invokes near-frenzy in devoted audiences, combining his undeniable magnetism and charisma with elements of musical heroes such as Cab Calloway, Big Joe Turner, The Blasters, Chuck Berry, Bob Wills, Sonny Boy Williamson, and so many more. Whiteboy James is backed by his long-time band, The Blues Express, and their fervent, sweat-soaked show is guaranteed to make you want to come back for more. Passionate, funny, virile, foul-mouthed, yet somehow lovable, this hurricane of a performer is unforgettable. If you get the chance to see Whiteboy James live, you will be entertained and astonished, but more than anything, you will want to see him again and again.
