Super 300 is (from the right) Brad Radis on Harp and Vocals, Jerry (Short Dog) Feldman on Guitar, Allan Hearn on bass and Jim Snodgrass on drums. The group performs dynamic arrangements of Chicago and traditional blues, as well as their own high energy boogie and swing-inspired original material. In the late '60s and '70s, as young musicians, Brad & Jerry backed various blues artists, including Shakey Jake Harris, Jimmy Witherspoon, Jimmy Reed, and J.D. Nicholson. This, along with influences of B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Albert Collins, Junior Wells, Sonny Boy Williamson and Magic Sam, continue to greatly influence the sound of Super 300.

Bassist Allan Hearn, originally out of Mississippi and Louisiana, has been playing consistently since the age of 13. Allan came to the West Coast to study at The Bass Institute of Technology and has established a long list of live performance and recording credits to his name, including playing bass on the soundtrack to the movie "Josie and the Pussycats." Allan has also received awards for his musical accomplishments and made appearances on Entertainment Tonight and The Playboy Channel.

Drummer Jim Snodgrass grew up in New York has been playing since the age of 14. Jim moved to Los Angeles in the mid '70s to study music and played at various venues over the years with a variety of artists, among them R & B soul artist King Cotton. Jim's association with Brad and Jerry goes back over 18 years. Jim and Allan inject a rock-solid and dynamic rhythm section into Super 300.
The band is dedicated to engaging audiences into the live performance blues experience.
