Stoney B (Michael Stone) was born May 29th, 1954 in Chicago, Illinois. He grew up listening to the blues. His father Lil’ Howling Wolf, who now lives in Memphis, Tennessee, played and performed the blues in Chicago. Stoney B’s passion for the blues really took hold when he began teaching himself the bass guitar at the age of 13. Stoney B started performing at age 15 in his first band called The Rayshons. They performed and competed mostly in talent shows including one he recalls against The Jackson 5 at the Regal Theatre.

He met another well known street musician, Elliott Small, during this time and the act known by many as Stoney B and Grandpa was born. Stoney B created the character of Grandpa through his quick wit and talent and Elliot took to it like a duck on water! Elliott Small continues to embrace that persona today as his musical identity being known by many as Grandpa Elliott. When they got together and combined Stoney B’s vocals and guitar with Elliott’s vocals and harmonica it came naturally and it was like magic. In Stoney B’s words, ‘We have never practiced or rehearsed anything…. Never!’ Yet they appeared as a highly polished act right from the beginning. Usually found on Royal Street in the French Quarter, their musical talents and experience created captivating entertainment for many travellers from all over the world.

They played blues favorites like Zz Hill’s Down Home Blues, Muddy Water’s Hoochie Coochie Man and Robert Johnson’s Sweet Home Chicago. Stoney B would serenade to passing couples with Jimmy Reed’s Don’t You Know That I Love You, Sam Cooke’s Bring It on Home to Me and Phil Phillips’ Sea of Love. He would then break it down with the “low down dirty stinkin’ don’t care ‘bout nobody… “ blues with songs like BB King’s How Blue Can You Get and original songs like A Friend and Louise. Throughout this accomplished performance of the Blues, Stoney B and Grandpa would have the crowd highly amused with the crazy banter and tomfoolery between him acting as “an ignorant backwoods guitar picker who pretends to be smarter than he looks” and Grandpa who “can see fine, but…pretends to be a blind harmonica player who pretends to be able to see”! “They know that it is their blues, the sorrowful, beautiful, haunting sound of bending guitar strings and weeping harmonica, that draws the tourists to them … but it is the show that makes the tourists stay.”
