Still working on that hot first release.



The B+ is an original 3-4 piece band out of Framingham, MA that plays funky groove music with R&B, blues rock and jazzy overtones.

Nick Kushner is a veteran rocker who plays guitar, bass and lead vocals. He has played in The Strike, Heart of Stone, Shades of Blue and Perfect World bands during the 80s and 90s and had played regularly at Club 3, The Channel, Harper's Ferry, Bunrattys, Jacks, TT the Bears and Chet's Last Call to name a few places that don't exist anymore. Recently, Mr Kushner has played several times at The Midway Cafe in the fall of 2022. Mr Kushner is a lead guitarist influenced by Hendrix and Van Halen with a style that utilizes blues rock string bending, and playing the notes in all the right places to fit the groove. He writes clever and catchy songs in the Funk, R&B, rock and jazz genres. He also plays bass in the band.

Louis Guillaume is also a veteran rocker who plays bass, guitar and backing vocals and is the band's recording engineer. He has played in Shake! 747, Cirque du Badass and Photoflash and has played The Rat, Phoenix Landing, TTs, The Lizard Lounge, Club 3, Sir Morgan's Cove, The Cantab, O'Briens, The Middle East, The Burren and many others. Louis' bass playing is very funky and his guitar playing is very psychedelic with awesome displays of harmonic passion with totally cool guitar sounds. He also writes very interesting progressive and fusion like instrumentals.

Karinne Davis is the band's drummer and Radiohead freak and is one of the most talented drummers I have played with. She can really get into the pocket with cool intricate displays of rhythm and timing and creates excitement using cymbal accents. She has played clubs such as The Midway Cafe, Porter Belly's, and clubs in Plymouth such as Main St Bar and Grill, The New World Tavern and Lucioso's Pub. She can play in all styles but prefers funk groove. 

Dave Anastasi sometimes joins the band as the monster keyboard player.  The B+ becomes the B++ when Dave joins and plays his awesome funk grooves. 

The interesting thing about The B+ is that Nick starts out the set on guitar, with Louis on bass playing songs written by Nick. Then they switch off and Louis plays guitar and Nick gets on the bass playing songs written by Louis.
