ADMINISTERING The Blues
Everett Boyd - Bass
Everett met Bobby at a recording session in
Woodstock, NY, almost twenty years ago.
Johnny "Clyde" Copeland had passed away
and Bobby was looking for new a bass player
for his band, which at the time included
Floyd Phillips on piano - a veteran of Johnny's
great band, and David Bennet Cohen on
Hammond Organ, a veteran of
Country Joe and the Fish.
This was when Everett’s journeyman
study of the blues began.

Marc Copell - Drums
Marc had already established himself as a
New York City musician by the time he and
Everett met more than twenty years ago.
Marc is a native New Yorker. They became
a rhythm section in a jazz trio, playing a
steady gig at a cigar bar on Hudson Street in
Greenwich Village. When Bobby was looking
for a new drummer, Everett thought of Marc,
and asked him to audition.
That was the beginning the solid
rhythm section that forms the foundation of
Bobby Kyle & The Administers.
