was the spring of 98 when guitarist Alvin Jett and keyboardist
Nick Georgeoff met at an open mic night jam session
held at a local club on Sunday afternoons. There was an instant
chemistry; a certain simpatico. Als lightning guitar
backed by Nicks soulful Hammond organ styles brought
about a harmonious style of blues and a certain atmosphere
wherever they played. That was not only the beginning of a
great musical project but of a great friendship as well.
Hired Help began as a four piece rhythm and blues band consisting
of original members Alvin Jett (guitar and vocals), Nick Georgeoff
(keyboards), Jon Fulmer (bass and vocals), and Marty Spikener
(drums and vocals).
a few short months into the project, at a live performance,
they meet saxophonist and vocalist Frank Bauer. Frank sits
in for a few tunes and the next day was asked to join the
band. Franks sax and vocal abilities add a completely
new dimension to the overall sound of the band.
a short time the band was performing at most of St. Louis
better rhythm and blues venues, gaining in popularity quickly.
Today, The Hired Help is playing four or five live shows weekly,
performing at larger venues and rhythm and blues festivals,
and even opening up for nationally acclaimed acts!
band consists of Alvin Jett (guitar and vocals), Frank Bauer
(sax and vocals), Nick Georgeoff (keys), Julius Julio
Walker (bass and vocals), and Anthony Evans (drums and vocals).
