OJB Blues Band

OJB Blues Band

Hailing from the vibrant streets of Sunset Blvd in Southern California, Oscar is a musical prodigy whose journey began with a six-string guitar in hand at the tender age of 6 or 7. Surrounded by the rich tapestry of his Mexican heritage, steeped in a tradition of artistic brilliance, Oscar's passion for blues and rock'n'roll ignited under the influence of legends like Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, B.B. King, and Elvis Presley.


Despite harboring dreams of a recording artist's life, Oscar answered the call of duty, enlisting in the US Army and serving with distinction for nearly seven years, rising to the rank of Sergeant. Serendipity struck during his deployment in Africa when he stumbled upon "Operation Rising Star," a global showcase of military talent, where his extraordinary gifts propelled him to the finals, standing among the top 12 contestants.


Upon his honorable discharge in 2016, Oscar embarked on a mission to reclaim his musical destiny. Teaming up with fellow Californian talent Rae Cole, they formed "Calling Cadence," a duo that reverberated with the soulful authenticity of blues and rock. Their debut album, recorded entirely in analog and released under Hi-Res Records, epitomized the raw essence of the '50s, '60s, and '70s musical eras.


Oscar, a torchbearer of the blues tradition, draws inspiration from a pantheon of legends spanning generations, from Charlie Patton and Robert Johnson to modern virtuosos like Stevie Ray Vaughan and Buddy Guy. Fueled by the legacies of his own musical lineage—the Sanchez and Bugarin families—Oscar emerges as a rising force in the Los Angeles blues scene.


Driven by a fervent desire to preserve and propagate the blues, Oscar and his bands have crisscrossed the nation, leaving an indelible mark on audiences coast to coast. Catch him live in LA, where his performances resonate with the authentic soul of the blues, inviting listeners on a journey through its storied past and promising an exciting future. Experience the magic of Oscar and witness firsthand the revival of a timeless musical tradition.
