One More Mile is a blues group from Vashon Island WA fronted by “The Principal” Jason Lollar (vocals/lead guitar) and “Lonesome” Mike Nichols (vocals/harmonica) – a musical brotherhood going back decades. This partnership of tone wizardry is dedicated to rocking the joint in the old school way- playing inspired original grooves and classic blues, funk, and rock and roll covers in the vein of James Cotton, Albert Collins, Little Walter, and The Meters.
Jason Lollar is a local treasure and veteran of the blues. He is the founder of the Lollar Guitar Pickup Company and cut his teeth playing with the Shakey Jake band throughout the 80’s and 90’s. Over the years Jason has opened for greats such as John Mayall, Mick Taylor, Curtiss Salgado, Isaac Scott and William Clarke. Well known by guitarists worldwide, he brings his whiskey vocals and smoky guitar tones to the stage with a funky and soulful bent.
Mike Nichols electrifies the air with ripping harp solos and preaches with the vocal stylings of a classic bluesman. A former member of The Great Divide, he has opened for the likes of Elvin Bishop and Commander Cody and the Lost Planet Airmen. Lonesome brings his own special style and swagger with a tip of the hat to his chief muse Ronnie Van Zant.
Rounding out the band are keyboardist/ vocalist Tony Mann (Massey Ferguson, Memphis Radio Kings), bassist/ vocalist Chuck Keller (Virgin Islands, Our Dead Fathers), and drummer/ vocalist Wesley Peterson (Saint Ophelia, Glen Cannon Trio).
