Scott Harrison used to play his bass alongside guitarist Lobo Loggins. Then one day, about 2 years ago, Lobo brought along his son, Jake, for an onstage jam session.

"He just kicked ass," says Harrison (pictured left). "I mean, this kid is rockin'."

Ever since, the lanky, 23-year-old Loggins (center) has been livening the local blues scene. He takes his time; don't expect some punk-ish set in which the band blows through its songs in the time it takes to drink a beer. When Loggins, Harrison and drummer Art Noble (right) get hold of the stage, they make sure they leave it smothered in their style, which Loggins calls "an original bluesy, folky Texas sound."

Still, Loggins admits, it's a work in progress. He has only been playing the guitar for six years he picked it up shortly after he and his father moved to the Springs from east Texas.

"We try to have four-hour shows around three nights a week," Loggins says. "So sometimes we're getting paid to rehearse."

But that has its perks.

"You'll never hear the same song twice," Harrison gushes.

Unless, of course, you get your hands on the album that Loggins and his father recently recorded in Tennessee. It's the first step in Loggins' plan to tour more of Colorado. So you might want to listen in while he's still around.

"The kid is the real deal," Harrison says.
