Photo of James O'Hara

James O'Hara's former Detonators were named after their explosive live performances. Their music was an enthusiastic and refreshing melting pot of Blues, R&B, Swing and Funk. This unique band featured the great talent of James O'Hara, whose guitar playing, showmanship and voice earned him enormous respect throughout the Blues scene.

Born 1970 in Yorkshire, England, James O'Hara formed his own Blues band "The Detonators" in 1992.
