What started out as a duo collaboration in the early 1970s as students at Castleton State College has evolved into a musical journey for the southern Vermont band known as Blue Jay Way.

West Rutland native Dave Sabatino, on bass, and guitarist Tim Brown of South Burlington hooked up as freshmen at Castleton back in 1974, and when a drummer was needed to expand to dance material, Sabatino called on Westside classmate Terry Jarrosak to fill the void. The trio expanded over the years with local musicians coming and going, but they have assembled a solid core in the past few years that includes Satin & Steel veterans Brad Morgan (keyboards) and Rob Henrichen (guitar).

All Vermont-born musicians, BJW is noted for its vocal harmonies and tight arrangements of rock favorites that span the five decades the band has performed together. Blue Jay Way, named after a lesser-known Beatles song, performs covers of classic hits by bands such as The Beatles, the Doobie Brothers and the Rolling Stones, with some modern songs by Amy Winehouse, Bruno Mars, and others added in.
