Bluesman DC Bellamy


Blues musician Gregory "DC" Bellamy grew up on Chicago's West Side, but he's made Kansas City his home for the past several years.

By Chuck Haddix (host of KCUR's The Fish Fry), edited by Michael Byars and Laura Spencer

Kansas City, MO – As a child, "DC" Bellamy says his musical influences ranged from gospel to jazz to classical music. But, he says it was the rhythm and blues scene that probably had the greatest impact on his musical style. KCUR Fish Fry host Chuck Haddix talked to Bellamy recently about his background.

D-C Bellamy can be heard Saturday night at the 7th Annual Kansas City Kansas Street Blues Festival, June 23, 24 and 25, Kaw Point Park.
