In September of 1986, the Stratoblasters performed their very first set at Redux in Dallas, Texas. It should be mentioned that as the namesake goes, this was not absolutely correct. Bugs Henderson had actually coined the moniker by naming his band Bugs Henderson and the Stratoblasters some time previously. After guitarists Jimmy Wallace and Mike (Junior Clark) left, he renamed the group Bugs Henderson and The Shuffle Kings, the very name they are internationally known by today. Bugs, very graciously, consented to allow Jimmy and company to retain the Stratoblasters name as they would be carrying on the tradition of the three guitar entity.
