Darrell Leonard’s Line Up

Darrell Leonard’s years of arranging and playing for Taj Mahal, BB King, The Blues Brothers, Leon Russell, Bonnie Raitt, Jimmy Smith, Elton John, and The Rolling Stones shaped the sound of his 14 piece horn band, the Line Up.  The Line Up’s mix of instrumental horn band blues and original music blends the sounds of Memphis, New Orleans, Kansas City, and Ft Worth into a sound that is both familiar and fresh.
